About me

I am a clinical social worker licensed in the states of Connecticut and Oregon with over 15 years of experience. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, bipolar disorder, relationship and attachment issues, addictions, managing emotions, and self esteem issues. I am also a certified health coach and a certified law of attraction life coach, and love supporting people in finally achieving their dreams.

My counseling style is warm and empathic. One of the most important things I do is to help people to recognize and connect with their own strengths and abilities. I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Counseling, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I will tailor our interactions and treatment plan goals to meet your unique and specific needs.

I recognize the strength and courage it takes to address the issues that are barriers to you having the life you want. I know that every human being is capable of improving their life with the right support and tools.

It would be a privilege and honor to support your on your journey. I truly look forward to working with you!

Elizabeth has been a great, empathetic therapist. She listens with no judgement and offers a different perspective for me to consider and view the situations in my life. She also offers me some ‘homework’ to see if it would help me. It is sad to see her go and i wish her the best!

Elizabeth helped me come out of the lowest period and mental health phase of my life. She is patient, compassionate, kind, and encouraging, and offers tangible coping mechanisms that really worked for me. She is great at acknowledging your growth while continuing to guide you to the next level. She regularly checks in on the things you want to work on and keeps sessions productive by setting goals for the upcoming week. She is a true professional and I will always be grateful for her!

I’m sad to see her go but I loved working with her very much. She is amazing and understanding. Very supportive. She is the best therapist I have had so far.

I wasn't sure about starting therapy. But Elizabeth spoke to me like a friend, and was able to help me gain insight to a big issue that needed to be sorted out.
