Hi! My name is Liz and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Texas. I have worked in the counseling field for over 6 years in a variety of settings and with a diverse range of clients. I earned my Masters degree in Professional Counseling from Texas State University and special training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have helped clients who struggle with Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, loss and grief, major life changes and adjustments, and parenting.
Counseling gives you the opportunity to make time for self-exploration. As your counselor, it is my job to give you an accepting, affirming, and empathetic environment where you can learn more about yourself, identify things about your life that you like, and process how to change what is not going well for you. I find it a privilege to work with my clients and be part of their journey towards becoming a version of themselves of which they are proud. I have seen my clients challenge themselves, do hard work, and make revelations that were possible within the safe space of counseling. You are beginning your first steps of that process by looking for a counselor, and for that I want to encourage you!
My approach to therapy is client centered: I believe the client is an expert on their own life and I'm here to help you accomplish the goals you make for yourself. Through a strengths-based and solutions-focused lens, I draw on multiple treatment modalities to guide clients in identifying strengths and learning about their emotions. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I assist clients in understanding how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors are connected and driven. This model can also be used with a trauma lens (Trauma-Focused CBT) to understand how crises and tragedies in our life have affected our ability to cope.
Outside of counseling, I enjoy being in my backyard with my family and two cats. I love to read, visit new places, and watch too much TV. I look forward to meeting you!

I really look forward to my sessions with Liz. She is so kind and supportive and gives me new perspectives and ideas each week that have helped me grow into a person I’m proud to be!
Liz has been a very good listener both for my traumas, but also in walking through my everyday life. She is an advocate for me and I feel like she has my best interest at heart. Our conversations are helpful and I feel comfortable talking to her about anything I go through. I would recommend her to anyone!
Liz is such a kind and supportive person. I feel safe with her and she has good ideas to deal with specific conflicts. I really enjoy working with her
Liz has been so great at hearing me out and really listening to everything I have to say. She has a way of helping me feel at ease. Even if I haven’t explained my situation to her yet, she still offers great solutions to help me out. I enjoy our sessions because she knows just what to say to help me feel better.
In the little that I have know Liz I have felt comfortable messaging and video chatting with her. She reaches out to me as well. I like to receive her messages when she hasn’t heard from me in a day or two. I fell that she cares and that me working with her is important to her and to me
She is an amazing counsellor. Her listening skills are bar none and her feedback is always applicable
She’s easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable. I feel she is professional and genuine.
She speaks to me like we are friends but has knowledge she made me realize so much about myself and how to work on myself she’s amazing
Liz has such a calming energy about her, I was surprised at how easy it was to open up immediately. Therapy doesn't work if you're not honest with how you're feeling and with Liz, she provides a very comforting disposition that makes you feel like she cares about how you feel and wants to help. Despite only having 30 minutes for a video call, she makes sure that by the end of the call, you're feeling at peace and at ease with everything going on. I feel like we cover so much ground in such a short time. She takes her time responding to messages, always responds quickly, and encourages me to send them regularly. She seems to have a personal interest in her patients' wellbeing and will even check on you periodically to see how you're feeling if you haven't reached out in a while. Even though it takes time and patience to really discover results, Liz definitely has the experience and insight to get me there!
Liz is extremely quick in her responses, she is very knowledgeable and helpful. She has helped me a lot and I would recommend her to a friend.
Liz has been a tremendous help with my healing process. She makes you feel respected and that your feelings are valid as well as question you to identify things on your own with a little push and guidance. I am so grateful to have her as a therapist. I can confidently say I am in a much better place than where I was two months ago. Thank you so much!
Liz was awesome! She was exactly what I needed. I needed to talk to someone outside of family and friends and Liz help me get my grieving out and I really enjoyed talking to her. Thanks for everything
Thank you Liz, you’re great!
Liz is a great listener who provides you with good guidance.
Liz is amazing! She's energetic and helpful and very interactive.
