Ellen Knapp, a Licensed Professional Counselor, has been working professionally with older people and their families since 1996.

As a Contemplative Therapist, she is trained to be with others in an ordinary yet attentive, relaxed way, and the capacity to be present in this way is an essential aspect of her work. It has been her experience that, as a companion or a psychotherapist, when you bring this disposition into a relationship with older people, their best qualities of mind and heart can be witnessed and appreciated.

About Ellen

“I love this work and continuously learn from each person and situation. I feel gratitude for the special opportunity to accompany people and families during transitional times as well as in an ongoing way. I want to give back to older people, who at this point have given all their lives.”
