Welcome to the Ellis Human Development Institute!

What to Expect

At your first appointment, you will meet with one of our clinical intake specialists to complete some paperwork. Completing paperwork may take 60 minutes.

After your paperwork is complete, you will meet with a counselor to complete a clinical intake interview. You and your counselor will discuss your concerns, personal history, and goals. You and your counselor will determine which services will be the most helpful for you and will develop a treatment plan. This clinical interview may last 1.5 to 2 hours.
