Hello! I'm Liz, and I'm dedicated to helping individuals, couples, and families forge strong, secure relationships that lay the groundwork for a rewarding life. With a master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, I've honed a solid understanding of therapeutic principles and techniques.
My commitment to continual growth and learning drives me to pursue advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFCT), a proven therapeutic model I'm currently certifying in. Integrating various approaches tailored to each client's needs, including cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, strengths-based therapy, and other attachment-based methods, I aim to foster deeper connections, resolve conflicts, boost self-esteem, and enhance resilience.
I firmly believe that secure relationships are pivotal for overall well-being. My mission is to aid clients in cultivating and nurturing these connections across various spheres of life, from home to work, school, and beyond. Together, we embark on a journey to foster new, meaningful interactions that breed greater intimacy and satisfaction.
My therapeutic style is warm, down-to-earth, and insight-oriented, creating a relaxed environment where clients can freely express themselves. You'll often find me in casual attire during in-person sessions, reflecting my conversational and informal approach, tailored to your unique personality and preferences. While I take my work seriously and remain dedicated to helping clients reach their goals, I understand the value of a laid-back, non-judgmental atmosphere. Therapy, I believe, can embrace moments of lightness and humor, allowing clients to feel supported and empowered throughout their journey.
I specialize in working with individuals and couples of all ages, particularly those grappling with depression, anxiety, family communication difficulties, self-esteem issues, couple conflicts, family discord, and overall wellness.
Beyond my professional endeavors, I love staying active with my husband, unwinding with my cats, delving into creative projects, immersing myself in computer games, and connecting with online communities.
I'm here to support you as you navigate towards deeper connections, personal growth, and a more fulfilling life. If you're ready to take the next step, I'd be thrilled to hear from you.
