A contemplative therapist, Ellen is trained to actively listen to and advise others in a relaxed yet attentive manner, and the capacity to be present in this way is an essential aspect of her work. In Ellen’s experience, whether as a skilled companion or a psychotherapist, when you bring this disposition into a relationship with older people their best qualities of kind and heart come through.
“I love this work and continuously learn from each person and in every situation. I am grateful for the opportunity to guide people and families during transitional times and beyond. I love giving back to older people, who have given all their lives”. – Ellen Knapp
