About Ellen Minier, PMHNP

As a provider, Ellen believes it is important to treat the individual, not their diagnosis. She has noticed that many people introduce themselves as their diagnosis, saying “I’m Depressed” or “I’m Bipolar.” Ms. Minier believes no one should be defined by a label and puts her patients at the center of their treatment plan. She works to empower people through sharing supportive resources and suggestions, knowing that everyone needs help some of the time. Her experience cultivating strength and hope with her own mindcare allows her to bring a great degree of empathy to her work with patients, and she wants patients to know that she will be with them every step of the way. It is her sincere goal to hold out hope for her patients that they will feel better until they gain that hope for themselves. As a former chef she loves to explore the brain-gut connection and how nutrition can affect our mental health; she regularly contributes “Mood Food” columns on this topic on MindPath’s “Be Well” blog. Ms. Minier has always been drawn to the way the human mind works and has seen the powerful connections between physical and mental health.
