Hi there! I’m Elizabeth, or Liz for short. I am experienced in working with trauma. This is a commonly used word and there are many different definitions for it. What I mean is that I help people who have gone through events in their lives, whether singular or reoccurring, that caused parts of their personality to separate from other parts. This could be experienced through addictive tendencies, dissociation, sex, drugs, procrastination, a lack of motivation, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping or eating.

I am a compassionate, professional psychotherapist with an individualized way of treating each client. I believe each person has the strength inside themselves for change and healing. It is my role to identify your personal style and help you find the clarity you need to make necessary life changes. In doing so I utilize many theoretical approaches including; psychodynamic, existential/humanistic, solution focused and cognitive behavioral.

Identity issues can cause intense feelings of isolation preventing so many people from living the way that they yearn to. This is especially true when there are layers of addiction, difficult relational patterns and past traumas. We become so much stronger when we face these things with an unconditionally present ally.

Life! It's perplexing and mysterious. Challenging and full of unexpected turns. Our fast-paced world presents us with demands that stress our coping abilities and make even the simplest of things seem overwhelming. But life can also be full of contentment and connection. When we acknowledge and explore what is upsetting, we have the potential to expand self-awareness and create a circle of compassion for ourselves and others. This leads to discovering our innate strength and resilience so that we are able to move forward, navigating choices that support the life we want to live.

Reaching out is not always easy and it's the first step to creating change. I have always believed we work to achieve success and happiness in the best ways we know how. There are times in our lives where we find ourselves unable to find solutions, move forward or times when you simply want to understand. This is where I can be of help. I encourage everyone to talk with several therapists to get a feel if this is the right person for you.

Are you suffering from the effects of trauma in your life? Are you finding that talk therapy alone is not shifting patterns of mood and behavior? I am a holistic psychotherapist with specialized training in Somatic Experiencing and the Neuro-Affective Relational Model. You may feel as though you don't know who you are any more, that life has become burdensome, or maybe you have the sense that you were never really your authentic self to begin with. Perhaps you experience physiological and behavioral symptoms such as addiction, overwhelm, and isolation. This loss of connection to self/other is indicative of trauma. I can help you.

The work you and I will do together is focused on your goals and needs and capitalizes on your strengths. My assessment process takes into account the biological, psychological, social, emotional, spiritual, and cultural aspects of your life. Once that assessment is completed, you and I will explore the issues and needs that you are trying to manage by utilizing a "motivational interviewing" approach. We then work to discover the maladaptive behaviors and coping mechanisms; and explore healthy, productive, and strengths-based strategies for getting these needs met.
