Biography

Ellen has been in the educational field for 20 years counseling K – 12 students and their parents as well as school staff members. She has conducted service training for teachers and school counselors in addition to developing outdoor educational projects.

As the mother of a severely disabled child, she has navigated parents through the early years of emotional upheaval that can occur when a severely disabled child comes into the family.

Ellen has been meditating for over 25 years and began a mindful-based practice  in 2012.  She is a certified yoga teacher and has taught yoga to adults and youth. Ellen is also certified in the use of cognitive behavior techniques which have shown to be most helpful in addressing child and teen anxiety. She has recently become a certified instructor with Mindful Schools.
