Ellen Minter


10 years of experience

Hi! I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker based in Indiana. Additionally, I am licensed and practice in Arizona, Massachusetts, and Virginia. I received my Master's from the University of Southern California and I enjoy working with people to help them become the best version of themselves. In a time where the world is full of hate, injustice, pain, and unprecedented challenges and changes, we all need someone to help process our lives. I want to serve as that for as many people as possible.

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

In your first session with me you can expect to answer a lot of questions. I want to get to know who you are and what you genuinely feel you need help with. You can expect light-hearted humor because it's important we are able to laugh at ourselves; You can also expect honesty and a listening ear. I will not just tell you what you want to hear but will instead listen for what you need.

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

I think my greatest strengths as a provider are my ability to empathize as well as sympathize. I have lived a very interesting life and can relate to a lot of situations my clients find themselves in or have been through. Another great strength I have as a provider is my directness. My clients never have to wonder what I am thinking or walk away unsure of how to proceed.

About Ellen Minter



My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT serves as the foundation of most therapeutic approaches and is weaved into most of my work. In addition, I am certified in Trauma-Focused CBT.

Couples Counseling

Couples are my passion population. I believe they are the beginning of the family dynamic and healthy parents make for healthy children.

Motivational Interviewing

I was trained on motivational interviewing in grad school and use it everyday in sessions with client to help them open up more and feel more heard.

Family Therapy

I work with families to help them find healthy and less dysfunctional ways to relate with each other and as a unit

Faith based therapy

I understand that faith plays a big role in decisions many people make for their lives. I try very hard to respect all faiths and help client's process their lives and situations through several lenses, including that of their faith.
