Coming from the heart, Liz offers compassion in a warm, accepting and supportive environment. Her philosophy is one of a "strengths based and resiliency perspective" --where knowledge, skills and strategies are used in a solution-focused approach that empowers adults and families, children and adolescents, to tap their inner resources in order to move toward healing and growth. Liz has worked with children, adolescents and adults dealing with grief and loss issues, depresson and anxiety and family adjustment issues due to significant life changes. She has counseled individuals who are recovering from abuse and trauma and counseled kids with school and peer problems and low self-esteem.
Families go through many cycles and stages. Life at times presents challenges where we find ourselves needing another layer of support. Through a family systems approach, Liz also helps support individuals, children, adolescents and families where they feel "stuck," and encourages them to explore new perspectives and solutions to issues and concerns. Using a "person-in-environment" model, the presenting problem is furthered explored from many perspectives and goals set together for creative solutions to enhance individual and family well-being.
While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges which keep you from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Through a client-centered, humanistic view, using "solution focused" methods, and at times employing the creative arts and "homework," I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues to help individuals explore their problems, work through their emotions, learn healthy coping skills and find resolution. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re seeking in connection to their hearts and souls.
