Bio

Liz has experience working with adolescents, adults, and families—especially those who have experienced trauma, have navigated difficult circumstances and decisions in their lives, or have been in times of transition. She particularly enjoys connecting with clients who are self-motivated and interested in therapeutic practices that can support them in emotional well-being, self advocacy, and healthy communication.

When working with clients, Liz draws on her ability to listen, build strong therapeutic rapport through compassionate understanding, and provide a safe space for clients to express themselves and be heard. It’s important, Liz believes, that hope and healing are a part of the therapeutic experience.

As a practitioner, Liz’s clinical work is anchored in a client-centered, strengths-based approach; with Liz, clients work on personal goals with achievable milestones, together, to help gain insight, build client self-confidence, and learn new coping skills. Liz’s areas of interest include anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, trauma, parenting, life transitions, LGBTQ+ identity development and growth, stressors related to COVID-19 and other events that can be traumatic.

Liz applies a well-rounded, tailored approach to meet clients’ needs. The range of her therapeutic techniques include utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy.
