More Than Just My Work

I am a mom of a teenager and love this stage of her life. I enjoy reading new parenting books, and traveling. I am also a marathon runner; I love exploring new running paths every day here in North Shore.

Ellie Green, MA, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

I believe that counseling is a two-way process which means working together to identify problems and develop solutions. I believe my client is their life expert and I will do my best to meet them where they are and support them in their life journey. I decided to become a clinician because I have always found individuals’ resiliency and perseverance in facing their life challenges extremely inspirational. I became a counselor to help others find their path again and feel privileged to witness that.

I view counseling as a journey of self-exploration by the client which helps them increase their level of self-understanding and self-awareness. I embrace imperfections while remaining open to improving. I believe the connection and rapport we build together are crucial to therapeutic success. I hope to be able to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for my clients to assist them in the process of discovery and acceptance of the self.

“At the center of your being, you have the answer; you know who you are, and you know what you want.”

I believe my strong sense of empathy, kindness, and inclusiveness can be very beneficial to my clients. I will provide a safe and non-judgmental space for the clients to learn more about themselves, explore their challenges, and pursue their goals.
