About Ellen Breisacher

In my work as a therapist, I like to focus on making clients feel safe, comfortable and accepted. While my approach is very direct, honest and interactive, it is also very important to me to bring a sense of warmth, caring and compassion to my work.

I have been in practice for 38 years and am currently working with individuals ranging in age from 14-80 years old. My extensive experience includes the treatment of young children, adolescents and young women as well as adult men and women with issues ranging from life transitions, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief issues, chemical dependency, co-dependency and eating disorders.

My belief is that a positive, interactive relationship created between therapist and client is the greatest contribution to a positive therapeutic outcome.

I enjoy my work immensely and look forward to working with you on your journey towards growth and change.
