Ellen Gordon, MA, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Newport Beach
If you're feeling stuck, I'd love to help. I use a supportive, solution-focused approach, providing you with effective tools that allow you to make positive, lasting changes. A graduate of Harvard and Antioch University, I work with people facing a variety of life challenges, including eating disorder recovery, anxiety, depression, and relationship transitions. Please visit my website to see a short video and learn more!
When we begin working together, we discuss your goals and collaborate on a treatment plan that's best for you. My approach is tailored to each of my clients-sometimes it's quiet listening, sometimes active support-but it's always about finding solutions that help you move forward.
My personal experience with eating disorders within my own family helps me understand the challenges...and rewards...of recovery. I spent many years counseling at mental health outpatient facilities and also worked as a staff therapist at The Victorian, a residential treatment center for women battling eating disorders and substance abuse.
