About me

Hi. My name is Elizabeth and I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of Texas. I am also a certified school counselor and recently transitioned to BetterHelp full-time after working as a counselor at a high school. I have been working as a counselor for 9 years, primarily in the school setting. I have helped my students with issues such as family problems, academic struggles, relationship issues, trauma/abuse, ADHD, autism, LGBT-issues, depression, anxiety, perfectionism, grief, and suicidal ideation. Before working as a counselor, I was an elementary teacher for 6 years.

I have experience working with adults and adolescents. I have been a counselor on Better Help for 3 years now and have loved seeing my clients understand themselves better and improve their mental health. This is why I have transitioned to working with BetterHelp full-time. I feel comfortable counseling people from a variety of backgrounds, especially those whose backgrounds are different than my own. My entire professional career has been spent with a primarily Hispanic population, but I am comfortable with other cultures, as well.

I am a big fan of CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and Solutions-focused therapy, but I try to cater my counseling to each client, so I often incorporate different counseling philosophies as needed. As a school counselor, I had many duties not related to counseling. I joined BetterHelp, so I could use my counseling skills to help more people. I am looking forward to meeting with clients and working together to improve their mental health. I also know how hard it can be to find a time to meet with a counselor, so I offer limited after-work sessions, for your convenience, in addition to 8am-5pm sessions.

I believe my clients are the experts on their own lives and I want to work with them to improve their contentment, coping skills, and mental health. I believe it is very important and beneficial to have a nonjudgmental, unbiased person to talk to. This is one of the best parts of counseling. I often use humor to lighten the mood when counseling. I find this helps grow my relationships with my clients. Congratulations on making the first step towards counseling by checking out this website. I would love to work with you.

Elizabeth always checks in on me when it’s been a little while if I don’t check in first. I love the accountability. She listens well, and is patient.

Elizabeth has helped me in ways I didn’t know possible, with a gentle touch she helps to shift my perspective of life and myself, become more positive and self fulfilling, she’s always open to my crazy ideas and stories even if they are irrational she will listen and then explain why, I love her
