Ethos Co-Founder Ceci Hudson Torn

Dr. Ceci Hudson Torn, DSW, LPC

Chief Operations Officer of Ethos Behavioral Health Group

An exemplary, long-spanning career in mental health and finance has put person-centered-care at the heart of Dr. Torn’s work. She has gathered a wealth of professional experience at one of the nation’s largest residential summer camps, which provided her with a unique lens to approach treatment in both outpatient and residential settings. Dr. Torn received her master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health from Wake Forest University, as well as her Doctorate of Social Work from the University of Southern California with a focus on building behavioral health in adolescents and young adults. Since co-founding Ethos Behavioral Health Group in 2018, Dr. Torn now spends her time providing clinical services and business leadership across all Ethos healing centers as a Licensed Mental Health Professional and Ethos’ Chief Operations Officer. She and her husband Chris are continuing to serve children and families with the launch of Camp OTX in the Texas Hill Country, all while raising 5 children of their own.

Through various opportunities spanning her adult life, she has had the privilege of helping others navigate deep waters. Dr. Torn lives with intention and has a great desire to encourage those around her to live intentionally as well. In her spare time, she loves to read, travel, learn about new cultures and practice yoga.
