Perhaps you or a loved one are ready for a journey towards improved mental health and personal growth. The path can be complex, often winding through areas of stress, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, and identity struggles. But you’re not alone. Meet a gifted psychologist who can be your trusted guide on this journey, Eleanor Ellis, PhD.

With a deep passion for positive mental health and personal growth, Dr. Ellis is committed to walking side-by-side with you, offering her expertise and understanding. She values a collaborative approach, focusing on your whole context and treating you as the unique individual you are. Her rich clinical experience equips her to support a wide range of clients, including those from multicultural backgrounds, LGBTQIA+, and those grappling with stress from internalized oppression, sexual assault, and trauma.

Dr. Ellis masterfully employs various evidence-based practices like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy, adapting the approach to suit your individual needs. She offers thorough psychological assessments for children, adolescents, and adults, covering general psychological diagnostic evaluations, psychoeducation evaluations, ADHD evaluations, PTSD and trauma evaluations, and Autism Spectrum evaluations.

Dr. Ellis’s educational journey began with a B.A in Psychology from The University of Tennessee, followed by an M.A. in Clinical Psychology at Middle Tennessee State University, and culminated in a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at The University of Georgia. Her experience includes being a Mental Health Case Manager, a Clinical Psychology Intern, a trained provider of Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, and an Adjunct Instructor and Guest Lecturer.

Dr. Ellis has her passions outside the office. She loves the outdoors, practicing yoga, listening to a wide array of music, from the edgy tunes of Rage Against the Machine to the soulful melodies of Bob Marley, and the tranquil notes of Chet Faker. She’s a fan of shows like Brooklyn 99 and Ted Lasso, and films like Life is Beautiful and Star Wars. Dr. Ellis’s reading list reflects her profound nature, with books like “A Thousand Splendid Suns” and “Man’s Search for Meaning”. And of course, there’s her orange cat, adding some playfulness and warmth to her life.

In Dr. Ellis, you have more than just a therapist. You have an authentic, caring guide who values your growth and stands ready to support you on your journey. After all, you’re the hero of your story, and she’s there to help you get where you want to go.
