My name is Lee Ellis. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Arkansas. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Appalachian State University in North Carolina, and my masters in social work from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.
I have been a licensed clinical social worker since 2004, working with adults, adolescents, families, and couples, providing therapy, substance abuse treatment and parenting education. I have training and expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps people recognize and change dysfunctional thoughts, and motivational interviewing, which helps people become motivated to change rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future. I have trained with the Grief Recovery Institute, and have worked with people who are struggling with losses. I am certified in The Incredible Years, a parenting curriculum, and have worked extensively with parents who want to improve their parenting skills.
But there is something that makes me different:
I combine psychotherapy with Energy Psychology, which taps into the power of the subconscious mind. You see, 95% of what is going on with you is coming from your subconscious. That is why sometimes you feel depressed, anxious, or just unhappy and you don’t know why. It is also why traditional psychotherapy can be SO difficult…because you are using your conscious mind to make changes, which is only 5% of what is going on with you.
I use three techniques to make changes in your subconscious programming: Emotional Freedom Technique (aka tapping), Theta Healing, and Tapas Acupressure Technique. I am also trained in hypnotherapy, though I find that the other techniques are more effective because they permanently change things in the subconscious mind.
