Clinic Description

Who is Ellie Mental Health?
Ellie Mental Health is a highly successful mental health multi-clinic organization based in Minnesota. Ellie clinics are structured to remove many of the daily obstacles that get in the way of providing world-class mental health services. Ellie makes the clinician’s experience the best it can be; providing excellent schedules while also providing centralized administrative, technology, referral and inquiry support, scheduling, client/therapist matching, billing and collections, and even CEU programs. Ellie strives to lower the administrative aspects of providing care to the absolute minimum, so our practitioners have more time to focus on what they love – serving clients! Other clinics may have similar approaches to some of these things, but Ellie has found the way to do it all and we are bringing our innovative approach to the nation.
