Hello, I'm Liz! I'm a licensed LSCSW in Kansas City with 10 years of professional experience. I graduated from K-State with my Bachelors of Science in Psychology in 2013 and my Masters from KU in Clinical Social Work in 2016. I have experience in helping clients with anxiety, depression, eating disorders and body image, trauma and abuse, domestic violence, relationships, boundaries, improving communication and everyday stressors. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities to best meet your needs and go at your own pace. I'm a strong believer in the client having autonomy while in therapy; we will always start with your goals and I will meet you where you're at. I am here to be a support in whatever your journey may be.
A little bit about myself:
My favorite self care activity is spending time with my cat and taking mindful walks. My favorite calming scents are patchouli and lavender. And my favorite relaxing place is Dream Lake in the Rocky Mountains.
Taking the first step to sign up for therapy is a big one, so congratulations! I would love to work with you if you feel I'd be a good fit. Even if you just want to meet to see if we click- finding the right therapist is really important. Welcome to Better Help and I hope to talk to you soon.

Liz has been exactly the patient, empathetic, kind voice I have needed while I'm processing and working towards a better version of my life and myself. Her approach is gentle while also being challenging - which is exactly what I needed.

Liz is an absolutely phenomenal person, and a very professional therapist. I've been working with her these past few months and I could not have picked a better one if I tried, she completely understands my issues and helps me connect a lot of dots that I never was able to before. I'm not completely done with therapy at this point (nor do I know if/when I will be) but for as long as I am able, Liz will always be my therapist.
