Professional statement

Elizabeth is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the owner of Cobb Psychotherapy LCSW, a full service private therapy practice with offices in Brooklyn Heights, Midtown Manhattan, and Williamsburg. Her practice focuses primarily on supporting young adults as they navigate the emotional ups and downs of major life transitions, such as graduating college, starting a new job, moving cities, and beginning and ending relationships. She is passionate about empowering millennials to confront these times of uncertainty with greater confidence and purpose.

Many of Elizabeth's clients come to her office seeking support for depression and anxiety. She is highly skilled at peeling back the layers of emotional complexity surrounding the root causes, paying close attention to the self-beliefs and relationship patterns that form based on early life experiences and family systems. She also equips clients with the concrete skills to manage overwhelming thoughts and emotions with greater mindfulness and ease.

In addition to her office, accessible by Court Street and Borough Hall subway stations, Elizabeth has completed the Person Centered Tech Telemental Health Certification Program and is excited to offer the option of remote therapy sessions, encouraging her clients to make room in their busy schedules for self-care.

Message to clients

What is holding you back? I work with young adults who don't know the answer to that question, who are struggling with life transitions, finding a purpose, and may be having a life crisis. Often my clients are dealing with depression and anxiety related to difficulty making decisions, are stuck in an unsatisfying job, or are feeling confused and uncertain about the next step in their life. My goal is to help you understand what you want and what's holding you back.
I help by exploring underlying resistance/barriers to accomplishing your goals. I help you face your fears by using a combination of CBT, to understand and challenge negative thoughts and beliefs, and EMDR which helps to work through and integrate important memories from your past to help you succeed. Together we can go deeper so you can see lasting change and discover your best self. Together we can work to figure out your purpose. Contact me to set up a complimentary consultation or appointment. Don't just survive. Thrive!
