Elizabeth Handley is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Ashland, MA who specializes in supporting clients across the lifespan to reduce and defeat anxious thoughts and behaviors. In addition to her work with individual adults, Elizabeth also has experience in helping children and teens navigate academic and behavioral challenges.
Elizabeth is a highly seasoned clinician and dedicated to integrating clinical compassion with cutting-edge therapy techniques. Elizabeth's treatment approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) while drawing upon the neurobiology behind anxiety and stress. She helps clients understand what is happening in their brain and why it causes them to feel anxious, stressed, or angry. She then works with them to develop healthier, sustainable coping strategies they can activate in their daily life.
Elizabeth's goal is for clients to leave each session with a set of tools they can immediately implement when they find themselves in situations that are anxiety or stress-inducing. Elizabeth empowers her clients to walk away with a better understanding of themselves and the confidence to overcome life's challenges.
