Tanisha Ellis

Therapist (LMSW)

Tanisha is an LMSW with a Master’s in Social Work and a Bachelor’s in Sociology.

She received a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology from the University of Texas at San Antonio. After thinking about going into social research, child licensing inspections, and a plethora of other careers, she chose social work. She then obtained her Master’s in Social Work from Walden University.

She has an extensive work history having worked for the State of Texas, a Family Services Agency, Juvenile Probation, and helped start a charter school. She has taken an interest in child welfare and completing Kinship Assessments to ensure children are in safe homes. Her multiple work experiences with children and families have allowed her to find her true calling of working in various communities. She has facilitated parenting groups, a support group for survivors of domestic abuse, and grief and anxiety groups.

She says as a licensed social worker, her primary goal is to serve underrepresented communities and change the stigma in communities of color regarding therapy. She believes that working towards normalizing conversations about mental health will strengthen relationships that individuals have with their families and communities. Her focus is using her compassion and objective approach to provide resources and tools to support her clients in their growth journey.
