Hi! My name is Elisabeth Faust, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I have worked in the behavioral health field for thirty (30) plus years. However, if you enjoy what you do, it is not work but a beloved career. I start slow getting to know my clients and making them feel comfortable before we move on to problem solving. I appreciate that people need to be heard and listening can be the best therapy. Different therapies work with different people. I employ basics of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Skills. I do encourage using mindfulness techniques and journaling.

I view the counseling process as an agent of change where the counselor and the client(s) have mutually agreed to engage in work towards agreed upon goals to benefit the client. This relationship is built on mutual respect, specifically regarding the client’s worldview, beliefs, and autonomy. My theoretical orientation is eclectic and includes components of cognitive-behavioral theory, person-centered perspectives, and positive psychology. In my practice, I utilize strengths-based approaches and techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy.

Life can be a daunting, unforgiving roller coaster at times. It can impact who you are in many ways without warning. Having someone to support and guide you through that journey can be revitalizing.

I'm so glad you're considering taking this next step. Life is challenging and often interrupted by stress, relationship challenges, and loss. We all crave a fulfilling life that is full of hope, connection, and meaning. Relationships with a spouse, partner, child, parent, siblings, roommates, and even co-workers are central to our emotional well-being. I have advanced training in EFT which focuses on creating connections. These close relationships often create a significant amount of stress, pain, and even loneliness, isolation and trauma. I also have advanced training in CPT trauma therapy to help people heal from trauma.

I believe the bravest thing we can do is embrace our true authentic self. Unfortunately, most of us have difficulty pushing through the negative messages that scream "YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN YOUR WORST CHOICE." We get stuck in our current experience as we wrestle with our fears, difficulty in our relationships and facing the grief of loss, convincing ourselves we do not deserve anything better than we can see right in front of us. I have a passion to help others find their authentic self and explore the barriers that may hinder them from expressing the powerful version of themselves that they long to embrace.
