Practicing Since: 2022
Elizabeth practices a combination of evidence-based treatment modalities. She determines the appropriate modality collaboratively with each individual and with their families/support systems when appropriate. She uses a strengths-based approach to help individuals recognize their strengths and abilities. And she utilizes cognitive-behavioral interventions to help individuals build autonomy and self-confidence and guides them as they take control of their situations and understand symptoms and triggers.
While completing her master’s degree in clinical social work, Elizabeth gained additional training and certifications in crisis intervention, trauma-informed care, motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), and emergency medical response.
In her spare time, Elizabeth likes to explore nature with her dog, enjoy a good cup of coffee, and travel to new places.
