Elizabeth McFarland is a Therapist in Kingsport. She works with adolescents, adults, couples, and groups. Many of Liza’s clients come in to address issues related to self-image, identity, life transitions, depression, and anxiety. Liza is particularly passionate about serving adolescents and young adults. She also has advanced training in the area of generalized anxiety disorder, depression, trauma, and substance abuse.
Liza is trained in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and mindfulness and art based therapies, in which time is spent exploring and understanding who clients are to better learn acceptance and develop individualized ways to manage symptoms. In session, Liza focuses on self-exploration, creative expression and mindfulness activities. This approach supports clients to understand themselves better and learn to love and accept all of themselves.
Liza's style is warm, engaging, and non-judgmental. When clients first start therapy, the focus is on building a collaborative relationship and creating a comfortable environment for clients to feel heard and understood.
Liza received her MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of North Georgia. She has worked at community clinics, doing in-home and in-office therapy with adolescents, adults, couples and groups.
