Rachel Jean Ellis


Social Work Intern

BS in Psychology, Eastern Connecticut State University
MSW student, University of Connecticut

Professional Interests:
My clinical interests include anxiety/adjustment and depression among young adults. Outside of work I enjoy watching tv series and movies, going out with friends and family, and taking my dog to the dog park.

Therapeutic Approach:
My focus in therapy is to provide a client centered, strengths-based approach to identify areas of resilience. I utilize an integrative approach by drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, and mindfulness techniques to meet the client where they are at. I prioritize developing a strong therapeutic relationship with the client to allow a safe environment that elicits trust and growth.
