About me

Hello and welcome!

My name is Libby, and I am a Board Certified Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Licensed Behavioral Specialist (LBS) in the state of Pennsylvania. I earned my Master’s degree in Professional Counseling in 2014 from Carlow University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I have 10 total years of experience in the mental health and behavioral health field, and I have worked with a variety of populations including young children, adolescents, adults, and the geriatric population. I have worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings and have experience working with individuals, families, couples, and groups addressing issues ranging from anxiety, depression, trauma, abuse, grief/loss, self-esteem issues, anger management, behavioral issues/oppositional defiance, ADHD, Autism, issues with social interactions and/or social phobias, Bipolar disorder, relationship issues, family conflict, and parenting issues.

My therapeutic approach is based on the client’s needs, and I believe there is no one therapy approach that works for everyone, as we are all different and unique individuals. I believe it is important to meet clients where they are, and work collaboratively together towards established goals. I believe in being open and honest in sessions to assist clients with gaining the feedback and assistance they need in making the changes that will better their lives. I believe the client-therapist relationship is extremely important, and there must be a good sense of trust, honesty, and teamwork between therapist and client for therapy to be productive and for goals to be achieved.

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to learn a little bit about me, and if you feel I am the right therapist for you, I look forward to working together!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Elizabeth "Libby" Burris. 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.

Libby is amazing. She really LISTENS to what my concerns are and where I want to focus, but will call me on my BS if I'm avoiding something. She's given me so many tools to manage my anxiety and to notice early if my depression is creeping back in. The last year would have been very different without Libby.

Libby is an angel. This is my first experience with counseling and she has made it such a positive one. She is friendly and encouraging as well as supportive. She always knows when to listen and when to offer feedback and I appreciate her experience and expertise. BetterHelp is changing my life and I appreciate everything Libby is doing to make that possible.
