About Me

HI! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is licensed in Missouri, Indiana and Arkansas. I own a "traditional" private practice in Jackson, MO and have worked provided online therapy since 2016. I love the opportunities that online provides clients to have a safe, flexible environment that is suited for their needs. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem and a wide range of other issues.
I have a eclectic style of counseling and believe the most important aspect is the therapeutic relationship. I strive to develop a collaborative process with clients because the process of therapy is just that....a process. We do it together. I am not the expert on your life, you are. I truly believe that everyone can learn to be healthier and happier but we are often not taught skills to do so.
My final thought on being a counselor: being invited into someone's life when things are going well is awesome We all love weddings, new babies, new careers, etc. but being invited into someone's life when things are hard and scary and they just are tying a rope and holding on, shouldn't just be a job, it should be an honor.

She meets me where I’m at and helps me move forward.

Elizabeth has been extremely helpful with my situation. She is personable and professional and I would recommend her to anyone.

My initial impression of Elizabeth is that she is fantastic at what she does. She has, in two sessions, cleared a lot of things in my head, and helped me make sense of a lot of emotions.
