About Ellen

Crump_0024

Ellen has worked with children and families for 25 years. Her doctoral research explored how therapy can offer children and youth tools for thriving – to build an identity resilient enough to fully cope in this disordered world.
She has held positions as Individual, Couple and Family Therapist, Lay-Minister, and Clinical Director/Owner of Oxford Learning Centre. She lives in beautiful Dundas, Ontario with her husband, Steve, her son Logan (McMaster University) and daughter Andrea (University of Waterloo). If she did not love working with families so much, she would travel to India to see the Taj Mahal, read 100 books, canoe on Lake Muskoka, and spend winters in any place warm.

Thank you for all your help and your love and care for my daughter. I know we couldn’t have gotten this far without you and the support. …inspiring families to thrive!

Drawing on 25 years of experience and expertise, I help individuals and families move from simply surviving life’s challenges to thriving.  In particular, I work with individuals, parents, and children. I often work in tandem, seeing both the parent(s) for coaching and youth for Thrive Resiliency counselling. This process effects positive and powerful change in the family system.

My approach is positive, affirming and reassuring. I work “shoulder to shoulder” helping make simple but profound changes which will result in:

  • Re-building healthy parent-child relationships
  • Finding resilient solutions to sticky problems
  • Moving into a place of deeper understanding
  • Feeling a greater sense of well-being and connection in life

As we navigate through this process together, a new sense of life and hope begins to emerge.
