Michelle Ellis

Congratulations to Dr. Michelle Ellis, Founder of Palo Santo Psychotherapy and Wellness for being the WomensNet Mini Grant recipient.

Palo Santo Psychotherapy and Wellness provides low-cost psychotherapy and wellness services to its community members who do not have insurance. It is one of the only private clinics in Tucson that offers low-cost, sliding scale therapy, in addition to a wide variety of psychotherapy and wellness services. “Our sliding fee clinic is one of the lowest in the Tucson area beginning at $25 per session. Because of our agency’s central location, we often have clients from local cities and towns including as far away as Sierra Vista,” says Michelle.

With the WomensNet Mini Grant, Michelle will use the funds to continue to keep interns working as well as continue helping community members with their low cost services.
