Ellen Eggen – Director of Clinical Services

Ellen E. Eggen, MS LPC ATR-BC is the Director of Clinical Services, a nationally board certified registered Art Therapist, and licensed professional counselor at Common Threads Family Resource Center.  She established Common Threads Family Resource Center’s first school and clinical pilot programs and has been the Director of Clinical Services for over 10 years.

Her passion for working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their family transcends the walls of Common Threads Family Resource Center, as she also teaches at Edgewood College in the Art Therapy Program, developed the first inclusive Art Program at Monroe Street Fine Arts Center, and has participated in numerous social action projects focused on autism-related issues and funding rights in Wisconsin.  Besides her philanthropy efforts and working towards the growth and development of our clinic and implementation of new program ideas, Ellen enjoys spending time at the lake with her husband and two children.



We watched our child’s self confidence grow daily. Most competent and compassionate staff. It was a gift for our whole family.
