Dustin Ellis | Suwanee

Master of Marriage and Family Therapy

Dustin was born and raised in Marietta, GA. Prior to working with GROW, Dustin spent the last 14 years using behavioral interventions, like applied behavior analysis (ABA), with children and families on the autism spectrum. He has made the transition into the field of counseling because he has seen the unique needs that families with children on the spectrum face.

Dustin specializes in providing resources and meeting the specific needs of the parents, families, siblings, and caregivers who have children on the spectrum. His goal is to provide a holistic approach that helps these families to thrive in the future. Also, he has training in emotionally focused therapy for couples to better serve this population.

Clients describe Dustin as someone who is warm and authentic and brings hope that change is possible. His approach centers around using awareness, practicing compassion, and acceptance of deeper emotions to create connection and change.

Dustin embraces the words of Brené Brown, "We cannot selectively numb emotions. When we numb the painful emotions, we also numb the positive emotions."
