Leigh Ellis

Leigh Ellis has moved her private practice and is now located at: The Family Therapy Place. Their address is: 731 Front Ave. NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49504 or you can reach their office via phone at: 616-207-2727. Leigh also works one day a week with the Fountain Hill Center in the Lakeshore Office.

Leigh takes a holistic approach in her counseling practice, and integrates mindfulness and body awareness into traditional talk therapy. Her model of therapy is interpersonal, psychodynamic, and person-centered. She strives to provide a safe, empathic, and secure environment where clients of all ages can explore themselves, their feelings, and their relationships. She promotes wellness in all areas of life and has experience coordinating care with other wellness providers.

Counseling is Leigh’s passion, and particularly, removing the barriers that keep people from receiving the counseling they need. While still in her counseling internship, she offered low- and no-fee counseling services to a wide variety of clients and provided in-school counseling services to Shelby Public Schools students, at no cost to students or their families. She feels thankful to have had the opportunity to work with historically under-served populations so early in her career, and remains committed to being a fully inclusive and culturally competent counselor.
