Do you know Ellie Mental Health?


Ellie Mental Health is a group of licensed professional therapists providing outpatient therapy throughout the valley to everyone. Our mission is to compassionately transform the culture of mental health care by providing creative solutions that make wellness accessible in every community.  We make getting mental health care easy without the weeks and weeks of waiting to get an appointment while also accepting commercial insurance.

Ellie provides mental health care for people. Period. This includes people of all ages,( 2 years of age and up) with individual, couples and family therapy. Our primary goal is to make therapy accessible and effective so you can get support, discover healing, and see amazing results. When you get in contact with us, our Client Access Specialists will learn your therapy needs and help you find your match. We are growing quickly and currently have locations in Scottsdale, Greater Phoenix, Chandler, Tempe and Deer Valley.

And while we know caring for your mental health and being vulnerable with someone you just met can seem scary, we do everything that we can to make each Ellie appointment as comfortable and as fun as possible. We aim to walk along this journey with you and provide you with a comfortable place to talk, decompress, do the work, and heal.

Ellie was founded in 2015 by Erin Pash and Kyle Keller when they opened the first Ellie clinic. Since then, the Ellie fam has continued to grow with multiple clinics in Minnesota and a growing number of franchises across the country (over 180 and growing).



Moving through the barriers

Ellie was proudly founded on the principle of destigmatizing mental health. The mental health industry is full of barriers, and we’ve made it our goal to fill the gap and find innovative ways to break down these barriers for the communities we serve.

The main way we do this? With humor! We believe that struggling with mental health issues is 100% normal. Some days are great, and some days make you wish you could dig yourself into a hole and hide from it all. Everyone has those days (even your therapist).

Every single person on this Earth has had their share of bad days—and if they say otherwise, just know that’s total bunk. When your mental health is at its lowest, getting the care you need should be as easy to access as possible. Ellie is here to provide you that support: a real person walking alongside you through life’s wildest moments.


Employee Experience

We take care of our people. It’s that simple. From investing in their financial future, to providing wages that shatter the ceiling in our industry to reasonable caseload expectations we ensure that our people are happy. Happy employees do better work and provide better client care! No matter what it is that you do in your mental health career at Ellie, our clients depend on us cultivating an environment where our employees can thrive so that they can thrive too! Careers in mental health are tough jobs with a high risk of emotional fatigue and burnout.

At Ellie, we use all of our core values of humor, creativity, authenticity, acceptance, determination, and compassion not just out in our communities, but we turn them inwards too! Our employees have clear growth paths for advancing their careers. We have created a culture that reminds us that our employees are our leaders!
