Testimonial Background.png
Dr. Ellis really helped me see myself and my goals in a new way.
She guided me in identifying those areas that were uncertain and mediocre and helped to truly develop me. I really felt safe and seen with her. I am a much more effective leader now and have a better view of how to move in excellence.
