Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ellen Farrell, Founder of Ellen Farrell Holistic Therapy, located in Athens, GA, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

My business incorporates deeply healing energy work with clinical trauma therapy. I have been doing Reiki since 1987, Clinical therapy since 2000, and EMDR since 2005.

Tell us about yourself

I began my work career doing method acting with BFA training from Rutgers University. I found myself fascinated with how and why we have trauma reactivity and maladaptive habits. I loved understanding feelings in the body/mind and how to shift from a stuck place to an aware, mindful knowing of balance and harmony. I love helping people get clear of ineffective habits/programming, heal the past, and feel more connected with what matters. Spiritual-Life coaching and energy system check-ins help me see my clients grow and thrive.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Happy clients were writing about the work to help others in the larger community.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Finding your audience.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Know your area of expertise.
  2. Don't oversell.
  3. Keep working on yourself.

Is there anything else you'd like to share?

Practice my free energy tools to be more centered, clear, grounded, and connected to intuition.
