Meet NewView Healing Solutions’ founder, Jeremy Elledge, who our team has lovingly nicknamed ‘The Force’! He received his MSW from the University of Oklahoma in 2005 and is a licensed clinical social worker, full-time therapist and mental health professional, clinical supervisor, and one of a limited number of ‘Trauma Specialists in Oklahoma trained by the National Child Traumatic Stress Network. Early work was in direct-care for crisis stabilization for youth in acute and residential settings, and later helped head-up one of the first trauma grants in Oklahoma to help improve systems and services to be more trauma-informed and effective. Jeremy also directed implementation for the Sanctuary and START Models for trauma-informed organizational culture and change, now working and supervising in out-patient therapy for kids and families. Jeremy enjoys teaching about the work, but his first passion and commitment is to DO the work of helping injured populations heal.
Jeremy is trained and certified as a ‘professor’ and trainer for the Sanctuary and START Models, later going on to develop original training for continuing education of licensed mental health professionals. Jeremy taught parenting education for nearly 10 years, has been a proud employee for the Oklahoma Department of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services. He currently serves as lead trainer for the Evolution Foundation, heads up NewView, and has a book coming out soon…
Jeremy has overcome his own personal trauma, in addition to losing much of his sight over the last decade, yet this hardly slows him down. He has overcome many obstacles and has become known as one of Oklahoma’s highly skilled and effective clinicians, a leader in the field of trauma and mental health. Our fearless leader truly embodies his own moving motto and mantra… don’t let your obstacles become your excuses
