SHERRY ELLIS, LCSW - California Therapist at Grow Therapy




8 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hello, how are you doing today? Have you had the opportunity to just check in with yourself today? Often times life is so busy that we forget about ourselves. Making this a habit minimizes your importance. Maybe all of your energy and focus has went into your career, your family, or others, and you often forget about an important person, You. With so many distractions and obligations you find yourself in a repeated cycle of feeling stuck, unhappiness, uncertainty, or self-doubt. All of these circumstances have prevented you from answering the question how can I live the life I want? Others may think you have it all together but inside you’re exhausted, tired of being in survival mode, and are ready to live. I am an open-minded relatable psychotherapist and I welcome you to a space where your healing and life fulfilling journey can begin. You are the expert of your life. I am not here to tell you what to do or how to live but to empower you to do the work and provide unconditional positive regard throughout your journey. I am passionate about empowerment and skill-building while working towards identifying and creating the life that makes sense to you. I focus on the present challenges while helping increase insight to make the desired progress towards growth, change, and restoration. I use a compassionate and understanding approach rooted in mindfulness to tailor techniques to your specific needs.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first meeting we will start with brief introductions before we explore your specific challenges that led you to seek support. This will help me collaborate with you to develop a tailored plan of treatment to work toward the goals you have in mind. You can expect to feel heard, understood, and validated through positive regard and authenticity.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

My strengths are empowering you while building long standing practices that promotes being your best self. My goal is to help you identify your strengths and empower you to use those strengths to work on your identified areas of change. I am experienced in working with individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, low self esteem, negative self talk, and adjustments to life changes.
