Ellen Diedrich - LPAT, LPC, CTS, ST, CSAC

I am licensed as a Professional Counselor, and Art Therapist to Practice Psychotherapy and Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I am certified as a Trauma Specialist and Sex Therapist. I have acquired training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR II) plus advanced diagnostic training in Thought Field Therapy (TFT). My specialized knowledge in Soma-Synthesis (Shen Natural Healing Methods) and Reiki Mastership add a unique healing advantage to my practice.

My clinical professional philosophy is framed within a holistic approach to treatment. I believe the client benefits deeply from gaining a sense of cognitive and emotional balance thru the mind, body and spirit experience. I enjoy working with a teamed approach as it provides quality in service. I have studied several disciplines because I have found that it helps me better understand the client, thus being more efficient in meeting their needs and guiding them to their goal.

Services offered:

  • Mental Health Therapy for individuals, couples, children (ages 3 and up), adolescents, and families
  • Desensitization for grieving and trauma
  • Alcohol and Drug Assessments and Treatment
  • Art Therapy
  • Therapeutic Touch (Reiki & Shen)
  • Psychodrama
  • Therapeutic Education


On going and progressive education provides me with a unique and successful approach in the areas of couples intimacy, sexuality, depression, anger/stress management, anxiety/panic, phobias, attention deficient-hyperactivity, chemical addiction, physical/sexual abuse, trauma, grief/loss and spirituality. My particular interest with women and children has found me much success. I am culturally diverse which includes several races and sexual preferences.

Other expertise:

Often clients come to me with physical pain, such as migraines, back pain and a variety of discomforts that together we can eliminate and often reduce the painful discomfort.
