Ellie Family Services was the idea of two passionate and frustrated therapists who knew they needed the opportunity to be creative if they were going to find solutions to helping people with their mental health.

That combination of passion and frustration was the energy source and single greatest motivator in the creation of a company, a brand, and a culture that aims to fill gaps in the wellness industry.
