She is great! She’s very friendly and does not judge but also gives feedback on how to resolve problems and she can talk out things that go on.

Thank you for working with me and Melissa even though she is down range. You make it easy for us. I recommended this site to four people already!

Ellen is excellent at therapeutic communication. I always feel like a weight has been lifted off of my back every time I get off of the phone with her. I felt a lot more optimistic about our relationship ever since I’ve started talking to her.

I feel like Ellen does a good job bridging the differences between me and my partner to create more fairness in the relationship and a better understanding of each other. I strongly feel that continuing to work with her will strengthen our communication and we will be a better team.

Ellen is a wonderful counselor. You could tell she really cares about you. She makes you comfortable. She does her best to accommodate, in fact she goes above and beyond. She really listens to your need and offers various ways to solve the problem without making you feel uncomfortable. I would recommend Ellen to all of my friends and family.
