Elizabeth Frietsch


About Me

Elizabeth is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Texas. She's been working primarily with adolescent and adult survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse since 2015. She is certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), an evidence-based modality developed specifically for reducing the effects of trauma. Elizabeth knows the effects of trauma can linger many years after the event and is ready to help you process the reminders of your past that still impact you, whether recent or long ago. Because of her work with survivors of trauma, Elizabeth has also gained experience working with overcoming depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and attachment/intimacy fears.

Elizabeth is a safe person for all people, including individuals on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum and those of diverse (or no) religious beliefs. She is a foster/adoptive parent and has extensive experience navigating the Texas foster care system as well as the additional parenting stressors unique to parenting children who've experienced trauma. Elizabeth is familiar with Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a parenting technique developed for raising children from hard places. Having spent all of her career in education and social services, Elizabeth is familiar with preventing and addressing compassion fatigue/burnout. Some individuals may feel nervous or vulnerable when beginning counseling, so it's important to Elizabeth to be a completely safe, non-judgmental, and affirming counselor who can handle hefty topics if needed.
