About

Ellis Jaruzel

Whether you are suffering immense distress or striving to actualize your ideal self, it is likely that there is a psychologist who can help you with what you are seeking. I would be honored to be that psychologist. I am a generalist and have worked with the full spectrum of adult and older adolescent diagnoses. That said, I am most skilled in working with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Relationship Issues, Personality Disorders, Existential Crises, and Personal Growth. Whether you are new to therapy, or this is a return visit, we can collaboratively create a plan of action tailored to your unique strengths, needs, and preferences.

Deep Expertise.
