“Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
– Helen Keller
Elizabeth serves children and families who are having difficulties with depression, anxiety, peer relations, self-harm, suicidal ideation, family dynamics, communication skills, anger management, emotional regulation, and major life transitions.
Elizabeth works from a collaborative, systemic, person-centered, and strength-based perspective. This allows her to work together with her clients and look at all parts of their lives and how to use the skills acquired. She believes in a nonjudgmental approach that can provide a safe environment for the clients to begin their journey towards achieving their identified needs and goals. Elizabeth engages in solution- focused techniques and interventions to help her client discover the strengths brought into the session. When working with families and children, she applies structural and play therapy interventions.
Elizabeth received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Mercer University in 2016 and a Master in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mercer University in 2018. While in graduate school, she worked at the Mercer’s Family Therapy Clinic with a diverse population of children, teenagers, adults, and families on a large variety of mental health issues and socioeconomic statuses. She also worked at a children’s advocacy center and in the local hospital, seeing individuals ages between 4-65 years or older. Elizabeth has experience working in a residential treatment facility, in which she provided individual and family sessions to individuals ages 8-18 years old. In addition, she led weekly group therapy to teach children ages 8-13 DBT skills to identify new coping skills, ways to manage anger, build positive relationships, identify triggers, and build tolerance to distress.
When Elizabeth is not counseling, she will most likely be seen reading, listening to music, relaxing on the beach or pool, and dancing. She likes to Zumba, participate in kickboxing, and hang with her friends trying new foods.
