Liz’s counseling approach is open, collaborative, and non-judgmental—a posture that comes from her deep respect for the tremendous diversity of human experiences as well as our common humanity. Her approach is to join with clients in their experiences, and support them as they grow in compassion, awareness, and trust in their authentic selves.
She holds an M.S.Ed. in Mental Health Counseling from Indiana University South Bend.
I provide a non-judgemental, accepting space that supports clients’ inner resources. I trust the client is their own best guide to their experience and that they have the answers they need. Rather than focusing on pathology or diagnosis, I seek to understand the client’s experience, to share a few helpful tools, and to accompany and support them as they deepen their self-awareness, acceptance, and come to more fully lean into their innate capacity to navigate life’s struggles and opportunities. As a client’s ability to know and trust themselves grows, they are able to recognize and let go of outmoded and unhelpful beliefs, and begin to make small but significant shifts in the way they show up in their lives. As this happens a client’s ability to navigate life’s challenges and opportunities is renewed and they experience a greater sense of self-agency and ease. It’s truly remarkable, and an honor to witness.
