Everyone comes to therapy for their own reasons. Often someone is feeling stuck and struggling to see their options, tired of doing the same things. I am passionate about meeting clients where they are in their process, providing a safe space to collaborate with them to discover options and create new ways to be. I believe when given the space, people will move towards growth as they acknowledge their needs. Throughout your time in therapy, we can explore your experiences, past and present, and work towards doing things differently, whatever that means for you.
I work from a strength-based, trauma-informed, systemic approach. My experience working in high schools brings a unique experience working with adolescents, as well as, with teachers. The areas I work with are anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction and recovery, family issues, attachment, life transitions, parenting, issues of adolescence and identity development, gender and sexuality, and self-acceptance.

Therapy is a powerful tool that benefits clients in vastly different ways, depending on the desired outcome. Elizabeth’s goal is to bring clients into an emotionally safe environment, where they work together to identify problematic patterns, delve into healthy coping skills, which will ultimately bring about opportunities for personal growth and healing.
Being a therapist is a true passion of Elizabeth’s. She has relished various opportunities to build upon her own skill sets, which can then be integrated into different paths within the therapeutic process. Elizabeth integrates a skills-oriented therapy known as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) into Narrative and Relational theories to understand clients’ needs from origin through healing.
While the various areas explored in the therapeutic process are limitless, some common examples Elizabeth may explore in therapy with clients include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, body image, self-esteem, adjustment disorders, attachment issues, perfectionism, over thinking & worrying, decision making, grief & loss, relationship issues and life transitions. Elizabeth earned her Bachelor’s Degree from University of Minnesota (Go Gophers!) and Master’s Degree from St. Mary’s University. Elizabeth is an active member of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.
On a personal note, Elizabeth is married with a dog named Moe. Her husband and family are the most significant part of her life. She also enjoys being outside, whether it be camping or boating with family and friends, hiking, or walking with Moe around her neighborhood. Elizabeth enjoys traveling and takes an annual trip to the Boundary Waters with her sister and her father. Canoeing in the wilderness with nothing but the beauty and serenity of nature around her is a remarkable experience.
