About me

One of my favorite writers, Henri Nouwen said, “Your future depends on how you remember your past.” This quote holds the foundation of my approach to therapy. I have leaned through the years that there is much to be said for the beliefs about oneself that are tangled up in traumatic memories. I have become certified in EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITIZATION AND REPROCESSING or EMDR as a way to shed usually negative self-beliefs that can become cemented to a memory. It is not about forgetting that memory as much as it is to relearn positive beliefs about oneself and attach them to the memory.
I understand that approaching counseling for many can be overwhelming. It is not easy to begin the task of self-exploration. However, for those who do, I firmly believe the reward is worth it. The reward can be an ability to recognize the strengths within that allow us to face the stress and obstacles that life inevitably throws our way. Another of my favorite quotes is “Life is not waiting for the storm to pass; it is learning how to dance in the rain.”
I utilize an eclectic approach, including EMDR when appropriate, combining several different counseling methods with a down to earth style. I tailor the therapeutic process to your needs work with you to identify goals that are attainable.
I specialize in creating connections. Connections that we all innately strive to achieve. These connections may be hindered by grief and loss, or difficulties with attachment that may be a result of adoption or bonding issues. I passionately believe that many emotional issues are the result of unrecognized or unresolved loss. These responses make healthy relationship building difficult. My background professionally and personally in adoption allow me to offer insights into bonding and attachment difficulties in past and present relationships. Depression and anxiety certainly are issues that one can develop from the experience of past trauma or anxious attachment.
I am a seasoned counselor, which is a polite way of saying well aged. After obtaining my BA degree in Psychology from Moravian College I worked with various social service agencies starting in the 1980’s. This led to working more directly with people suffering the acute results of mental illness in an inpatient setting. I then worked in adoption field preparing both families and children for relationship building. I obtained my master’s degree in Pastoral Counseling in 2008. This allows me to join with you if you choose to explore a spiritually based journey. I obtained my licensed professional counseling designation in 2011 and followed a path to private practice. This experience brings with it the ability to quickly assess situations as well as solutions. I enjoy working with adults and couples. I strive to connect in a way that enables you to find the confidence that is within yourself to live an emotionally rich life!

I honestly can't say enough good things about Elizabeth. Therapy can be daunting to venture into, especially if it's been a while or you've never been. But Elizabeth makes me feel validated and heard. I feel so safe and valued in session, and she's amazing at answering messages or journal entries when I'm struggling outside session. I'm so so thankful for her and all that she's helped me through!
