Elizabeth Toporas, LMFT
I am a marriage and family therapist licensed in Indiana with almost 20 years of experience. I graduated with a Master of Science in Education degree from Indiana University. I have had the privilege of working with foster families, blended families, couples, and survivors of intimate partner violence. I specialize in chronic post-traumatic stress disorder (C-PTSD), grief and loss, anxiety, and depression, all within the context of relationships.
My counseling style is warm and interactive, with a sprinkle of humor on top. My approach combines client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and emotionally-focused treatment modalities, using a trauma-focused brain/body connection. I will tailor our dialog and treatment goals to meet your needs and time frame.
It takes courage to seek out support. I have found most people are looking for validation of the change they want to make. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Liz makes me feel like she's literally inside my brain sometimes. She has been able to tap into my inner thoughts and it's been such a release. I would recommend her to anyone!

It took me several tries to find a therapist I connect with. As someone with a clinical degree, I am critical of the style and approach each therapist brings to the table. Liz could not be more supportive, kind, and attentive. After our first call, I knew I would be returning to her care. Liz has been with me through some of the best, worst, and most mundane days of my life and I am truly grateful for her steady gaze, compassionate ear, and sharp wit.

I've met and chatted with Liz a few times and already would recommend her. She's given me things to work on to help me personally and has provided resources on areas to improve that I've highlighted with my kids. She's been great to work with so far.
