Ellen Fader, LCSW

Psychotherapy is a collaboration between an individual, couple or family and their therapist to meet life’s challenges, create solutions and improve the quality of life.

Take a moment and imagine what your life might look like if you accomplished the goals you set out for yourself.  What are some of the things that get in the way?

  • If you feel stuck, dissatisfied or immobilized with your career
  • If you are struggling with relationships, finding it difficult to resolve conflict, or having a hard time communicating with your partner
  • If you awaken feeling exhausted, depressed and unmotivated
  • If you suffer from debilitating anxiety or panic attacks that leave you feeling drained
  • If stress runs you ragged
  • If you’ve experienced past traumas that continue to plague the quality of your life

Psychotherapy and Counseling can help!

I am a solution-oriented psychotherapist. I integrate conventional talk therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy and relational/family work with innovative approaches to accelerate healing that includes EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), mindfulness-based therapy, mind/body techniques and other types of treatment.  I am compassionate, open-minded, results-oriented, and have a calm demeanor. People describe me as warm, competent, focused, with a good sense of humor.  I am an optimist who believes that problems have solutions.

My specialties include abuse issues, trauma, self-esteem issues, stress reduction, and anxiety-related disorders, to name a few. For a full description, visit my Specialties page.

Please take a few minutes to browse through my website and feel free to contact me about your specific situation. The first step to personal growth and satisfaction can begin with a telephone call.
