Her research focuses on enhancing assessment and treatment for individuals who have experienced traumatic stress and she has published her work in peer reviewed journals and presented at national and international conferences. As a beach lover, Dr. Ennis couldn’t be happier to live in Charleston where she enjoys spending time by the ocean, biking to explore new spots, and trying all the wonderful food the city has to offer.
Personal statement: “I deeply appreciate the courage it takes for clients to seek help. Engaging in psychotherapy can be challenging for many clients, yet incredibly rewarding. With Modern Minds’ integrated model, these challenges become more approachable and clients are never alone in their journey. I am excited about Modern Minds because their model addresses gaps in current care by offering holistic approaches and between-session wellness services to support clients in each step of their process. I am inspired by the innovative and evidence-based care at Modern Minds and believe this model truly addresses individuals’ interconnected mind and body goals.”
