Carmelle Ellison, LCSW

Meet Carmelle: I consider it an honor and a privilege to work as a therapist and know that it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help. I am grateful to be able to support you no matter where you find yourself in life.

My specialties: I have extensive experience in working with adolescents and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, overwhelm, relational difficulties, and those big often confusing questions of life: What am I doing with my life? Who do I want to be? And how do I get closer to the life I envision for myself? I also have particular interest and experience in working with those who may have had trauma in their backgrounds.

What drew me to this work: Beginning at an early age, I’ve had awareness of human suffering and how, even in the direst of circumstances, the human spirit is resilient and has potential to not only survive but surpassingly overcome its endured experiences. And, often in order to overcome these experiences, help is needed. I truly love being that person who can help others along their journeys and to support you in thriving no matter where you are starting from.

My style: Warmly engaging, attentive, and direct.

Services I offer: In-person individual adolescent therapy, individual adult therapy, and family therapy as well as online video counseling for residents of California.
