As a primary therapist at Selah House, Eleanor works with clients individually to understand what purpose their eating disorders serves in their lives to develop healthier ways of coping. Considering the heavy role trauma plays in the development and maintenance of eating disorders, Eleanor operates from a trauma-informed theoretical orientation and incorporates elements of CBT, DBT, and person-centered therapy in to her work with clients. Throughout their time with Eleanor, clients should feel supported and empowered in their journey to recovery. Eleanor loves to introduce clients to new things they can bring home with them and use in their recovery journey, such as gardening, book series, art therapy, bullet journaling, mindfulness practices, and more.
Eleanor completed her undergraduate degrees in marketing and psychology at Anderson University, and finished her Master of Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Ball State University in May of 2020. Throughout these educational experiences, Eleanor had been working at the Selah House as a Recovery Care Specialist and began working here as a therapist as soon as she finished her masters.
She loves weekends spent at the lake, watching HGTV, and Harry Potter. In her spare time, Eleanor loves to garden, bake and cook, practice yoga, and hang out with her husband, dog, and cat.
