Camille Ellingsen, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Encinitas CA
It takes courage to seek therapy and I am here to help you through the issues, concerns, and problems that you present. I provide a compassionate and nonjudgmental space that encourages you to discuss your deepest thoughts and struggles to promote optimal healing. I believe that our problematic behaviors in adulthood once served as a means of survival and a tactic to help us endure life at some point. Turning to those behaviors with compassion and curiosity verses shame and disdain can create a paradigm inner shift. I don't believe in pathologizing your behavior, and instead, accepting all parts of you and creating inner balance through self-exploration, self-love, and acceptance. From there, you are able to form an inner relationship with all parts of yourself with compassion, understanding, and appreciation. Revolutionizing your inner world will therefore revolutionize your outer world. Typical issues that I work with are anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, poor boundaries, codependency, addiction, life transitions, trauma, and relational issues. I provide preparation and integration for psychedelic journeys.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in both California and Tennessee. I am trained by the leading experts at Polaris Insight Center located in San Fransisco to provide ketamine-assisted psychotherapy. I earned my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2014 and have since been studying psychedelic therapy. While working in Tennessee, California, England, and Germany, I have worked with anxiety, depression, addiction, military, teenagers, and adults.
