At Liz's practice, Couples Healing Center, Liz and her associate, Nicole Chovit help couples heal after infidelity, build and nurture intimacy and connection, navigate through different sexual issues, communicate better, and satisfy each other's needs.

During the sessions, you will get to explore how our attachment issues, from our childhood, affects our adult relationships, especially the one with our romantic partner. You will learn how to become more secure within yourselves/together and how to build and maintain a happy and healthy relationship as a team. You will also gain more effective communication skills, emotion regulation/co-regulation skills, and conflict resolution skills through out the treatment.

Message to clients

Finding the right therapist is not an easy task. You want to find a professional, who has a great training in the modalities that address your concerns/issues most affectively. But also you want to choose a therapist, who you can relate to and feel comfortable with, because seeing a therapist once a week sometimes is more than you get to see some of your family members or your friends.

So you want to make sure that you like your therapist and enjoy the sessions you have with them.

I believe that the relationship I build and maintain with my clients are one of the most affective healing tools I can provide. I provide a compassionate and non-judgmental space where my clients feel safe and nurtured. I treat all my clients with utmost care and respect to promote the growth and change they need to live a fulfilling life at their best ability.

I would love to hear from you soon, contact me for a free consultation to see if we will be a good fit.
