I work especially with Latiné, Jewish , and/or queer individuals to navigate the obstacles unique to these lived experiences.
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.

Support for burnout, healing from trauma, and neurodivergent experience (ADHD, autism, bipolar). Rumination-Focused ERP for OCD, panic, or health anxiety. Scheduling based on your preference: short term, ‘one-at-a-time,’ or longer term. I often support service providers experiencing burnout, people suffering from bureaucratic or institutional oppression, and those healing from narcissistic abuse. And I may be a good fit for people with unique problems, prior negative experiences in therapy, or those who feel like their struggles are never fully articulated or addressed.

Aloha. Are you experiencing distress, seem stuck and desire change? We all learn patterns of relating to ourselves, others, and the world that at some point no longer serve us. This can show up in relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety; grief, emptiness, confusion, a lack of direction and meaning. What you want is more ease, joy, connection and ability to live the life you want. What you may need is a relational therapist to support your exploration and growth, as you uncover your powerful, authentic self from which we are all able to live our best lives and contribute our gifts.

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 have extensive experience with Eastern-European, Jewish , and Indian/South Asian communities, and love working with cross-cultural relationships.
Relationships can be hard. Partners struggle with communication, conflicting parenting styles, sexual expressions... Life's challenges, hurtful fights, history of trauma or infidelity make it difficult to sustain trust and closeness. How can you create desired connections, and not lose yourself in the process? How can you be true both to self and to your partnership? I invite you to explore these questions together with empathy and curiosity, letting go of habitual judgments, self-deprecation, and shame. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Both traditional and alternative lifestyles are welcome, and no issue is a taboo.

What type of Santa Cruz mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Santa Cruz?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
