My name is Ellie McCarthy (she, her), and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT). My therapeutic approach is client-centered, and I work from a systemic, narrative perspective. I appreciate hearing stories about your life and how you got to where you are today. It’s my goal to listen to these stories and find patterns, examine different dynamics, explore past and current challenges, and use those to encourage positive, healthy change.


I have experience working with a wide range of ages in individual sessions, family sessions, and couples sessions. My biggest passion in my work is providing therapy to couples, whether they are dating, engaged, married, or a team of co-parents.

I acknowledge and understand that therapy is a choice, and I believe that choosing to participate in therapy is brave. Therefore, it is important that I create a safe, judgement-free space for you to grow and learn about yourself as you work toward emotional stability and wellness.
