Hi, I’m Liz and I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2021. Prior to that I worked in the mental health field for over a decade in various roles, including as a Recovery Support Specialist and case manager. I am comfortable working with people from all walks of life and look forward to helping people discover their wants, needs, and strengths. I recognize seeking help can be difficult, or even intimidating; and our day to day responsibilities often overshadow the important self-care needs we all have.

In this fast-paced and overstimulating world, it's easy to lose sight of our own needs. The demands of everyday life can be incredibly overwhelming and may have gotten in the way of your intentions to take good care of yourself. Reaching out for support when you are distressed is a big step and I am so glad you’re here. My goal is to create a warm, empathetic, and judgment-free space where you can receive support to live a full, manageable life. I support individuals stuggling with anxiety and looking to make changes in their lives and relationships, those going through life transitions, and individuals in all stages of parenting.

I specialize in EMDR Therapy. Disturbing events from the past can negatively impact us in the present in many ways. Sometimes this is manifested by intrusive thoughts, flashbacks, nightmares, feelings of anger, and overall reduction in optimal functioning. EMDR helps to process these memories, decreasing and ultimately neutralizing the emotional charge. It eliminates constant unpleasant reminders and rids us of continued negative messages internalized tied to the memories. It is not possible to change what happened, but it is absolutely possible to change how you feel related to past experiences to move forward with more peace.

There is an old saying: "Never give a sword to a person who can't dance". This wisdom speaks directly to minds that are stuck and cannot move rhythmically but are bound to fear, anxiety and neglect. When our minds become inflexible, we cut ourselves away from our intuitive self, causing suffering and pain. Only with the experience of standing unbiased and naked in "another's shoes" can we really know we are clear and authentic. When we become authentic, we receive confidence. Confidence begets creativity and with creativity we discover our life.
