Eleanor Ezell completed her Masters in Social Work at New York University, graduating with Honors. Prior to her graduate education, she worked at Yale University and received her B.A. in Psychology from Sewanee: University of the South. Her dedication and passion for working with children began at a young age, but she found her professional path during a summer internship were she was introduced to children with SM. Ever since, she has been dedicated to increasing access of care to young children with mental health needs.

Eleanor is currently completing a two year Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship at the University of Mississippi Medical Center where she is on a multi-disciplinary fellowship team to allow every child multi-disciplinary care. Previously, she has worked in private practice and day treatment centers. She trained in New York under the direction of Dr. Steven Kurtz in the treatment of Disruptive Behavior and Anxiety Disorders, specifically ADHD, ODD, SM and Social Anxiety. Through years of exposure and treatment of SM, Eleanor has co-duplicated the “Mighty Mouth Kids” Program in two locations and continues to treat children with SM across the state of Mississippi. Eleanor is Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) Certified, a Teacher-Child Interaction Therapy (TCIT) Trainer and Child-Adult Relationship Enhancement (CARE) Trainer in schools across Mississippi.

Eleanor is currently seeing patients in the UMMC CAY Clinic, in local schools and in the pediatric primary care setting in Jackson, MS.
