Welcome! I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW/LCSW) and advanced certified hospice/palliative social worker (ACHP-SW) with over 30 years of experience providing counseling and coaching services to people throughout many parts of the United States. I respect and honor your decision to seek a counselor to help you with the challenges you are going through.
I work with clients from a person-centered, strengths-based perspective, meaning that I LISTEN to you non-judgmentally, and I LEARN from you about your values and dreams, what helps you most, and what your wishes are to improve your life, your relationships, and how you are feeling. In addition to deeply hearing you and your story, I provide interventions and support based in mindfulness and insight-orientation, life coaching, and cognitive-behavioral techniques, all of which will improve your confidence and your compassion for yourself, and increase your resilience to cope with whatever challenges have come your way.
We all go through losses and unexpected change and crises at some point(s) in our lives. I am here to help you navigate these upsets, whether it is the diagnosis of a serious illness, the death of a loved one, divorce, the loss of employment, questions about your relationships and sexuality, or helping take care of your elderly parents, to name just some common challenges we all may deal with. I am an expert specifically in life and personal development coaching, career issues, grief and loss, coping with life-threatening illness, navigating medical systems, and compassion fatigue and caregiver support especially for adult children or caregivers of elderly parents.
I look forward to working side-by-side with you to improve your health, confidence, and well-being, and to help you achieve your most fulfilling, authentic, and empowered life!

I’ve now been seeing Elizabeth on Better Help for 2 years, and I am so grateful for her guidance. Whether it’s work stress, generalized anxiety or a traumatic event, it’s comforting to know I can confide in Elizabeth at our next appointment. Elizabeth has helped provide me with the tools to deal with anything from organizing my schedule to confronting a difficult situation or healing from past hurt. I would recommend Elizabeth to anyone looking for someone to help them better navigate their life.

Elizabeth has been a tremendous help in picking up the pieces and re-centering after a hectic year. Her warmth, intelligence, and holistic approach to therapy have empowered me to think about my life differently. I would highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone who asked!

Elizabeth has been a wonderful counselor - she's an incredible listener but knows the perfect moments to step in and ask the right question or provide a helpful piece of guidance. She has helped me manage my anxiety in these uncertain times and I always leave our conversations feeling stronger than I did earlier in the day.

i’ve been in therapy with Elizabeth for a few months now and it’s been great so far. she always listens to me and often understands exactly how i’m feeling about something before i even express it. she’s given me a variety of great ways to cope with anxiety and anger and although it’s been hard to get over those things, her suggestions really have been helping. i’m really glad i started therapy and Elizabeth has been a huge help.
