About Ellen C.S. Miller, LMFT

I am Ellen Miller and am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  I specialize in working with children/teens, adults, couples, and families of varying backgrounds, and presenting problems.  Whatever is your motivation to start therapy, I am ready to help you create lasting change.

I received my Bachelor's of Arts in Psychology with a specialization in Human Development & Family Studies from Michigan State University and Master's of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy from Northwestern University.  Prior to Starting Pointe Therapy, I was the Clinical Director at an outpatient therapy agency in the North Shore suburbs of Chicago that specialized in adolescent mental health, psycho-education, and crisis management.

My clinical experience partnered with my understanding of the community lends to a unique and thoughtful perspective to guide our work together. I believe that each person  possess the strengths they need to overcome their difficulties.  My goal is to provide a safe and supportive space to discover these traits while encouraging you every step of the way.
