Elizabeth Nigro is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has a private practice in Westchester, New York. The majority of her clients are women who share a Christian faith, and a large portion of her work supports equipping mothers for motherhood or helping single women discern the calling God has for them.
Elizabeth often works with clients who feel overwhelmed or depleted, despite functioning quite well. They might be struggling with setting loving boundaries, creating rhythms that support their lives, or taking on too much – which can result in anxiety, people-pleasing, and overwhelm. Elizabeth's work with her clients includes helping to reduce this overwhelm, and connect back to their faith – prioritizing it – and figuring out how to take good care of both themselves and their family. Most of Elizabeth's clients are successful, nurturing, and compassionate, but have a hard time understanding their own needs and are finally ready to learn why.
Elizabeth's approach is rooted and guided by her Christian faith. She pairs that with a depth-oriented, practical, and holistic approach, examining the whole picture of a client's life and considering all the factors that contribute to their mental health so they can get to the root cause.
Elizabeth knows that we don't always get it 'right'; however, it is her hope is that through her work with each client, they can begin to look outside of themselves, feel more whole and become more and more of who they were created to be. She looks forward to being a part of your journey and helping you get started!
