Welcome to Ellen Oler's Consultation Page



I have worked as a mental health consultant with businesses, non-profit organizations and churches for over 17 years.

During those years, I have been:

• An EAP Consultant (Employee Assistance Program), providing support and guidance to managers, supervisors and employees • A workshop presenter. Topics presented included: - stress management - communication skills - downsizing and organizational change - alcohol and drug education for employees and managers - issues related to managing difficult employees • A consultant to clergy • A trainer for professional and paraprofessional staff in non-profit organizations


Clients have included the following corporations and institutions:

• Merrill Lynch • American Express • Lehman Brothers • AT&T • The New York Times • Newsday • Seagrams • Harris Rothenberg • The Hope Program • First Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn


I have worked for and with EAP's since 1985. I have been both an internal EAP provider (for Merrill Lynch and Newsday) and an external consultant assisting a wide variety of corporations and organizations. In those roles, I have provided:

• EAP assessment and referral • Management Consultations • Job Performance Referrals • Fitness for Duty assessments • Education and Training

I am available to work directly with EAP providers in any or all of these areas.


Many of us face concerns about family members that we are unsure how to address. These may include issues related to:

• aging parents • illness • substance abuse or suspected mental health problems • parenting dilemmas • sibling concerns

It may not be necessary to enter therapy over these concerns, but an objective opinion provided by an informed professional would really help to clarify options and identify resources. I have provided many such consultations, which have generally taken only a few sessions and left family members feeling relieved and with a clear sense of direction.
