About me

Hello and welcome. I am a dually Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Licensed Clinical Addictions Counselor working in the state of Indiana. I consider it my honor to walk this journey with you and thank you for entrusting me with this opportunity. I have been fortunate to serve as a therapist in a variety of settings for nearly two decades. My therapeutic approach can best be describes as person-centered and holistic. I am trained in Illness Management and Recovery, Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, addictions approaches, family systems therapy, and a variety of eclectic approaches that can be tailored to fit the needs of each individual client. I truly believe in the therapeutic process and relationship.

During sessions, you can expect much support and reinforcement (and some gentle challenging) in a safe and collaborative environment. While we may wish it, therapists do not hold the answers for others. We function more like trail guides so that when you are standing in the dark or unknown, we can illuminate the path that has been there all along. And just as that guide merely shows the path, a therapist cannot do the work for you. This is a team event until you are able to take all the skills and tools you've learned and apply them. My goal is to work myself out of a job for every single client I meet.

I believe in the value of work/life balance and will practice what I preach. But I will also promise the gift of 100% of my time and attention when we are together for live video/phone sessions. And we can follow up with chat or email between sessions to ensure you get the best possible experience. I look forward to our journey together.

I’m so glad I found Elizabeth, because she has helped me so much as I navigate chronic illness, as well as recognizing when my thoughts are hurting rather than helping me. She is very supportive and positive, and an excellent ally.

Elizabeth is the type of individual that causes others to feel safe enough to open up. She is warm and friendly but very knowledgeable.
