NWW Luminary Profile
With a bachelor’s degree in Human Development and Psychological Services from Northwestern University, Ellen earned a master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Chicago.

She has specialized training in trauma, anxiety, and substance use, highlighted by a Fellowship with the Center of Excellence in Substance Abuse Training at the Seattle Veteran Affairs Hospital.

Ellen teaches the Compassion Cultivation Cycle™ (CCC) , which is a model she designed from her experience and training in Neurobiology, Polyvagal and Attachment Theories, and Ecology. The CCC is a framework to understand shame, anxiety, depression and other forms of suffering, and how to sustainably transform these experiences to build resilience and self-compassion throughout your life.

Ellen completed a long immersion program in Interpersonal Neurobiology under the guidance of international expert Dr. Bonnie Badenoch. As a certified yoga instructor she seamlessly integrates breathing and movement into trainings, workshops, and therapy. She would love to share practice with you.
