Ellie uses a person-centered approach to create a welcome, positive environment for you. She creates a space where you are free to be yourself and show up however you want. Your therapeutic relationship can help explore new ways of thinking, feeling, and communicating. You can cry, swear, laugh, or all of the above. You have the space to process every emotion. Ellie will share helpful skills or new insight throughout the process.
Genuine human connection is the foundation of therapy. In our therapeutic relationship, we will talk about all of life's big (and seemingly small) moments. We will ask hard questions and use humor along the way. Because everyone is different, there isn't a "one size fits all" method. At Stillwater Therapy, we use a combination of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution focused therapy (SFT), and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques.
