Hello! My name is Elizabeth Julian Smith. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from the state of Texas. I attended the Lamar University. You are so brave and strong in reaching out to a counselor. We will walk together on this journey of total wellness. I tell clients we are not going to learn how to just "get over it". We are going to learn to go through it together. I have had experience in anxiety, stress, life planning, depression, and relationship conflicts. I practice Person Centered, CBT, Solution Focused, but I like to tailor my theoretical approach to what my clients need, I am open minded and would like you to feel comfortable in sharing your personal content. I have experience in counseling with all ages. Counseling is a partnership between all parties. I would love to work with you on your life's journey.
Additional areas of focus: Relationship issues, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Self esteem, Career difficulties, Coaching, Compassion fatigue, ADHD, Blended Family Issues, Life Purpose, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), Self-Love, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Client-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution-Focused Therapy, Trauma-Focused Therapy

Liz is always so kind and respectful and I feel like she really listens. She follows up on the smallest of details and offhand comments that I make in our sessions and I don’t feel like I just have to go back over my whole life story each time we talk. She does her best to work with my schedule and is always understanding when I have to change things up. I cannot say enough good things about her!
