“Somedays life is all about your dreams, hopes and visions for the future. But there are some days where life is just about putting one foot in front of the other. And that is okay”.

― Author Unknown

Therapy can be at times overwhelming and vulnerable experience; I strive to create a safe place where clients can feel supported and empowered to heal and grow at their own pace. I accomplish this by utilizing resources and therapeutic techniques that best fit each client for their individual and personal journey and needs.

My Approach & Values

Elizabeth is an Associate Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who is passionate about providing a compassionate, accepting, and self-empowering experience to her clients. Elizabeth particularly enjoys working with children, adolescents, young adults, and couples.

Although born in Arizona, Elizabeth was raised in the Central Valley. Elizabeth received her Bachelor of Science from University of La Verne in Psychology. While in college her passion for mental health developed quickly. She earned her Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy as well as her Master’s in Clinical Psychology from Brandman University. During her school internships she began counseling those working for Tulare County Office of Education’s Behavior Health Services working in the school settings to provide therapeutic services to children all over Tulare County.

Elizabeth is experienced in many counseling techniques and utilizes an open minded, compassionate approach.  Her counseling style and approach is Holistic/Integrative. The first few sessions start out with a person-centered therapy approach.  Elizabeth believes that it is important to establish a trusting, ethical, therapeutic relationship by form of congruence, unconditional positive regard, and empathy in the beginning. Elizabeth feels that issues like depression or anxiety can be helped with cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT has also been great when working with adolescents who struggle with aggression and conduct disorders.  Her counseling style and approach really depends on the client and what best fits the situation.  Whether you are seeking change for a healthier happier life, or just need a non judgmental ear to listen, Elizabeth is here to support and empower you.
