About me

I am a licensed clinical counselor in Ohio. For over twelve 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!

A patient and kind listener. Gave me scripture to reference what I was feeling. Very relatable.

Intelligent, kind and courteous with a lot of helpful insights that teach you to go through life's situations.

Elizabeth is caring, direct, and helps me understand myself, and is helping me to be kinder and more accepting of myself. She makes something that I wasn’t very comfortable about, completely non threatening, and more therapeutic than I imagined.

Elizabeth "gets" me. She understands what I have gone through and where I am now. She has great insight and patience. I am very lucky to have met her and I credit her with bringing me forward to a much better place
