About Ellen Oldham, Doctoral Practicum Student
Ellen is a transplant from Canada who married an American soldier and has traveled extensively as well as lived in 5 different countries. As a result of these rich cultural experiences, Ellen maintains a culturally-sensitive approach to therapy. She believes that a person’s subjective personal history is at the center of who that person is and that everyone is a product of their life experiences. Every single person comes to therapy with their own unique story. Ellen tries to understand the distinct historical and cultural context of each of her clients, to accept them for who they are and to learn from them so she can meet them where they are in life. From there, she encourages and helps to facilitate personal growth, development and achievement of personal goals.
Using this lens, she works with children, adolescents, adults and couples. She has training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), the Gottman Method Couples Therapy and is working towards AASECT certification as a Sex Therapist and Educator.
Ellen recognizes and appreciates the courage it takes to seek therapy and ask for help. With this in mind, she treats each client with respect and unconditional positive regard while creating a safe, judgment-free environment. She strives for a collaborative therapeutic relationship to create change, transformation, empowerment and choices. In other words…Ellen works with her clients to reach their goals and move towards the life they want to live
