Elizabeth (Liz) McCoy is not currently accepting new clients.
My eclectic background has offered me the opportunity to work and live with individuals and family systems inclusive of all abilities and ages (people with disabilities, sudden/chronic illnesses, trauma). I work with people who experience anxiety, depression, negative self-talk such as “I am powerless”, “I am worthless”, “I am unlovable”, and other intrusive repetitive thoughts. My individual sessions and group classes allow you to find stability during the highs and lows of daily life, with your family of choice and your community. I believe in living a balanced life that honors mind, body and spirit.
I am trained in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction including mindful movement (Level 1), Grief and Loss Companioning, Narrative Therapy and Crisis Assessments. Group offerings include dynamic writing processes and mindfulness.
The focus of my practice is you. Together we will build a safe and trusting therapeutic alliance. I use holistic evidence & process-based practices that empower you to make informed decisions guided by your core values. It is my desire that you leave my office office feeling heard and supported even during the most difficult of times.

More about this group

Narrative Therapy, MESSY Writing

I am trained to lead groups in a narrative unconscious writing process I have begun to call MESSY Writing (acronym yet to be determined). After ground rules, including but not limited to confidentiality, are agreed upon, a prompt is offered, the group writes in the form of stream of consciousness for 6-12 minutes. After which time, each person reads their writing aloud. No praise or criticism, just thank you is offered in return. “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.” Rumi
