Meet Ellen

Some people call me the cop doc because like my protagonist, Dot Meyerhoff, I specialize in treating first responders who are suffering from work-related stress. Dot, named after my mother and maternal grandmother, and I share some traits, but we’re way different. We’re both dedicated, maybe too dedicated to our clients. But I try harder than she does to balance my work life with my personal life.
