Professional statement

Emotions, thoughts, or life circumstances can hop into the driver’s seat of life, taking you for a ride you didn’t ask to go on. You feel disconnected; not fully present. You know there is a different path, one that leads to a sense of ease, but you have lost your way looking for it. You can take control back! You’re in the right place to do it.

Elizabeth provides therapy for people experiencing anxiety, stress, emotional sensitivity, and challenges managing life transitions. She specializes in CBT, is board certified in DBT, and has extensive training in mindfulness and meditation. Elizabeth uses these approaches to help people gain more control of their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Using a style that is warm, genuine, and nonjudgmental, Elizabeth will work with you to get back to or find your path, help you understand and overcome roadblocks, and develop a roadmap for living more peacefully.

With a lens of curiosity, nonjudgmental awareness, and kindness toward emotions, thoughts, and behavior patterns, Elizabeth will guide you toward and encourage changes you want to see for yourself.

Elizabeth has always felt deeply connected to people, animals, and plants and surrounds herself with many! She has an ongoing practice of meditation, mindfulness, and yoga, which has greatly impacted the ways in which interacts with others and sees the human experience. She believes that learning to identify and hold space for all emotions without getting stuck in them or pushing them away can bring inner peace and confidence in navigating life. Her experiences working in and consulting to non-profit human service organizations, schools, residential and therapeutic programs, psychiatric hospitals, and counseling centers have equipped her with tools and support to offer her clients.

Elizabeth provides session remotely using a HIPAA-compliant platform. Reach out to set up a free introduction call today.


Message to clients

Reaching out for support is a big step to take! I know this can feel scary and overwhelming, so I hope you can take a moment to honor the bravery in your choice. It can feel like such a relief to find someone you can talk to in a space that is just for you, one where you feel heard, understood, and never judged. My hope is that our time together feels like a safe place to land, an hour during the week where you can settle in and focus on what you need, even if you aren’t sure what that is just yet.

We’ll start with an introductory phone call to make sure my availability and style is a good fit for you. In our initial session, I'll take the time to get to know you and what led you to reach out for therapy. We’ll explore some of the things you might like to accomplish during our time together and will collaboratively develop a treatment plan that is based on your goals. During this time, I'll be ensuring that we're also developing a therapeutic relationship that feels trusting and helpful to you. I leave space at the end of and after sessions for feedback on how you feel therapy is going.

I invite you to come exactly as you are and would be honored to join you and support you on your journey of growth. I look forward to speaking with you.
