Having a supportive space to talk through what causes us strife can be instrumental in clarifying our own values and identifying opportunities to move closer to them. Together, we’ll create a therapeutic relationship that encourages curiosity and compassion. We will find a way forward that brings clarity and meaning to your daily interactions.
As humans we crave connection. Therapy is a space to not feel so alone in our experiences and to create a zest for more connected relationships beyond the therapy room. In our sessions we can work together to cultivate insight, have a better relationship with emotions, and feel confident doing the hard things that living a meaningful life requires.
Recognizing the uniqueness of each client, I bring my extensive training in evidence-based therapies and effective interventions to listen to your needs so we can together create a plan for what works best for you. I’ve worked with youth and adult clients and families from diverse backgrounds in a variety of settings including community based crisis stabilization programs, higher level of care eating disorder treatment, and individual outpatient counseling. Together we have navigated struggles with depression, anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, disordered eating and eating disorders, and life stressors. I completed my undergraduate degree at Saint Louis University and my Master of Arts in Clinical Counseling Psychology at The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Treatment specialties include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP).

Liz looks forward to drawing on her experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), motivational interviewing, and mindfulness in order to create a plan for treatment to address your unique needs.
