Elizabeth treats clients ages 15 & up. Sessions may be face to face or virtual (using a HIPAA compliant platform). We understand that therapy is only part of the solution and we work cooperatively with clients to find the contributing factors to their health challenges. These factors may include lifestyle habits that precipitated the stress response in the first place; once the client is aware, they are empowered to change with support from a trusted advocate.

I believe God cares greatly for the hearts of his people and will comfort you and help you find freedom through connected relationships.
