Bio

Paige’s therapeutic approach is based on the belief that individuals are in charge of their own lives. Her goal as a practitioner is to provide a safe environment where clients can explore their primary interests, develop goals, and determine strengths as they move forward towards their aspirations. Paige understands that life is messy and no single approach is right for every individual so she focuses on building relationships to understand client wants and needs.

Prior to joining Ellie, Paige provided services to youth and adolescents on the Autism spectrum both in home and in clinic settings. She is currently pursuing her Master’s degree in Social Work in order to become a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker.

Outside of work, Paige enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, reading fantasy novels, and watching horror movies. She can always be found in a local coffee shop drinking way too much caffeine. Once she is awake, she also loves spending time with her friends and family!
