About me

I am a licensed clinical counselor in Ohio. For over fifteen years, I have worked with adults with addiction, anxiety, grief and depression. Many of my clients experienced past trauma, family conflicts, and issues with motivation and self-esteem.

My vision of counseling is to come along side the person who is hurting to offer understanding and encouragement as you share your story so that together we can figure out a plan for moving forward. My counseling techniques emphasize behavioral strategies and interpersonal skills, while drawing on the tenets of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT emphasizes living and engaging in life according to your values so that you make intentional choices and feel better with the choices you make. My overall approach is person-centered, and our interaction will always be underscored by respect and genuine care.

We want our lives to matter, we want our relationships to matter, and we want to be important to those we love. Being seen and being heard is crucial. Sometimes, just feeling understood for even a moment is priceless. I am very glad to have the opportunity to work with you here in this forum!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Elizabeth Shartle. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

It’s astonishing that I’d be matched with a therapist who understood me so well. Perhaps she is just that accomplished? What I know is that I brought Elizabeth a crisis that I never expected to face. She’s helped me deal with it with a grace and insight that continue to amaze and heal. Can’t say enough good things.

I would strongly recommend Elizabeth! She is very professional. You can tell that she is constantly learning herself to better grow her skill. She is considerate of your thoughts and feelings. She provides helpful worksheets to help you better process what it is that your feeling and exploring. She asks great questions and has a gentle and loving character about her.

Elizabeth is my first experience with therapy. I’ve been seeing her weekly for over a year. She has been instrumental in helping me understand my depression. I would recommend her without any reservations at all. She is easy to talk to, and makes such helpful observations and suggestions.
