About Ellen C.S. Miller, LMFT

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

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology with a specialization in Human Development & Family Studies from Michigan State University and my Master 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, psychoeducation, 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 possesses 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.
