Ellen C King, MEd, LPC, RPT, NCC, Counselor in Little River
I enjoy working with children, teenagers, families and adults and have been providing individual and family counseling for 15 years. I am a Registered Play Therapist, National Board Certified Counselor and Licensed Professional Counselor and I have received extensive training in Filial Play Therapy, Parenting Education, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Post-Adoption Issues.
I believe that kindness and empathy are essential to the treatment process. . . in addition to creativity and playfulness. It's important that children, adolescents and parents feel empowered, understood and respected.
Bella, our resident therapy dog, has been providing services for the past nine years. She has extensive experience in listening...as evidenced by her large ears.
