About Mesha Ellis
Hello and welcome to online counselling. My name is Dr. Mesha Ellis. I can help you understand what is working and not working in your relationship, learn new skills for communicating and handling problems, and rediscover why you fell in love to begin with.
Many of the couples seeking my services come in troubled by self-doubt, questioning their level of commitment, and/or are contemplating walking away from their relationship. I can assist you and your partner in your journey to create the kind of relationship that makes you happier and more fulfilled both in and out of the bedroom.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who has substantive training in working with couples struggling with affairs and infidelity. I have been practicing for over 15 years and have completed advanced training as well as a practicum in Gottman Method Couples Therapy.
My therapeutic style is characterized by warmth, empathy, humor, and a caring yet direct approach. I tailor therapeutic interactions to meet each client's needs. You will find me easy to talk to and fair minded. I can help you to understand what's working and not working in your relationships, to learn new skills for handling problems, and to rediscover your why.
