I have worked in a variety of settings from treatment foster care to inpatient psychiatric hospitals and now in private practice. I have worked with clients with a variety of concerns including, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and stress.

I love talking to Elizabeth, she helps me look at my problems in new ways and has also helped me work through some of the trauma that has been holding me back from having good self esteem. This has been a hard year for so many but I’m thankful to have found such a thoughtful and supportive therapist to help me get through it.

I felt comfortable with Elizabeth in the first few minutes talking with her and knew she would be able to help me with my issues.
