I’ve been working with Elizabeth for a few months now, and it’s not an overstatement to say that she has changed my life!
She is an excellent therapist, a wonderful person and an all-time great giver of advice!
She always makes me feel seen and heard, while at the same time encouraging me to actively work on goals that we set based on our conversations. She’s always prepared to help me launch into a session, and on the rare occasion that I don’t know what to talk about, she has been very thoughtful in suggesting points that were raised in previous sessions. She is incredibly patient and kind, always making sure we work in a way that is comfortable for me. No matter what I experienced in a given week, whenever I log into a session with her, I know I am entering a safe space where I can just be, all thanks to her amazing work.
On top of all that, she is unbelievably generous with her time and always understanding of my crazy, ever-changing schedule.
I would recommend her to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat!

Elizabeth is super respectful and understanding, even when I don’t make much sense. She’s very supportive and helps me work through and better understand what i’m going through and focuses on the things I feel are most important to me at the moment.

Elizabeth has made me feel so comfortable every session. Anytime I need to open up, she knows how to help me feel validated and understood. It’s like chatting with a friend, and just so good for the soul afterwards.

Elizabeth went out of her way to work with my very difficult schedule issues. Working graveyard six days a week with 12+ hour days makes it impossible to utilize traditional in person sessions and online not so easy either. She made it a point to set appointment for me while traveling for work and providing sessions for me literally before the sun came up. The system had issues on one of our sessions which left us unable to utilize internet but she had no phone access in the building so she made her way to a private spot in another location immediately and never mentioned a word when our session ended up going 90+ minutes due to only about a 15 interruption of service from the app my major take away from this story is her knowing that my session that day had some serious issues going on and she was going to do everything in her power to ensure that I had what I needed after the interruption.
She took the time from the very start to listen and help me to immediately feel comfortable and working towards getting through my issues
