Rachel Ellington, MA, LPC, LCDC-I

For the first several years of my career, I worked in maximum security juvenile corrections. This taught me a lot about the resistance that can happen and how difficult therapy can be, especially when its court ordered. However, if you are a person who wants to move forward, who wishes to get better, who works to live happier, you deserve a standing ovation. The first step towards self-discovery is always the hardest. Whether you feel lonely, depressed, stressed, or just sort of a mess, I would love to support you. I am passionate about helping people overcome their mental health and substance use challenges to achieve their personal and professional goals.

“A failure is not always a mistake; it may simply be the best one can do under the circumstances. The real mistake is to stop trying.” – B.F. Skinner
