Hi! I’m Ellen McSweeney. I’m a writer, teacher, musician, and therapist-in-training based in Washington, D.C.

I currently work with students and clients in three different ways: as a writer, editor, and writing coach; as a teacher of violin; and as a wedding officiant.

I bring a wide range of professional and personal credentials to my work, including a clinical social work degree (in progress), degrees in English and violin performance, hundreds of training hours in meditation and yoga, and a decade of experience as a performing musician.   

If you’re interested in working with me in any of these areas, you can explore the links above. You can also sign up for my newsletter, check out my full bio, or just send me an email at ellen [dot] mcsweeney [at] gmail.com.
