Mary Ellis | Cumming

Licensed Professional Counselor

After graduating from Liberty University with a Master of Arts in Counseling, Mary went into community mental health for two years, working with the chronically and severely mentally ill. Since then, she has been in private practice. She really enjoys working with couples and also counsels individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, OCD, grief, life transitions, family of origin pain, and parenting issues, among other things. She mainly counsels adults but will also work with older adolescents.

She was an Air Force wife for many years, and she enjoys working with military couples and individuals. She has been married for almost 44 years and has raised four children. There are not many issues in marriage and parenting she has not encountered either personally or professionally. Her undergraduate degree is in Education and she taught middle school for a couple of years before returning to school to study counseling. Before that, she did considerable volunteer counseling at a pro-life counseling center.

She has been a follower of Jesus for most of her life and tries to live and counsel with His grace and love. She considers it a sacred privilege to be a part of each client’s journey to healing.
