Kelli Tischer, MSW, LICSW


Kelli is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and has a Master of Social Work degree from Augsburg University. Kelli is an EMDR International Association (EMDRIA) trained EMDR therapist. She has experience with DBT group facilitation and will often bring DBT skills work into sessions. She will also utilize CBT and somatic approaches.

Kelli believes that people have the ability and wisdom within themselves to heal and live a life that is authentic. In therapy she supports people in feeling safe with themselves, connecting to themselves, healing, and moving forward into the life they want. It’s ok not to know what that life looks like yet! She takes a collaborative and flexible approach to therapy.

Prior to joining Ellie, Kelli worked as a therapist and skills worker in community mental health. She has over 10 years of experience working in mental health.

Outside of the therapy office, Kelli loves to cook, especially trying out a new recipe! She also loves to get out in nature and go for a good hike!
