Hey there, I'm Liz and I love helping children, adolecents, and adults set and reach their mental health goals. I use a different approach than the "sit down and tell me how that made you feel" thoughts. I still focus on emotions and how those emotions influence you, but much more on how you are wanting to feel and the things you are wanting to do. I use a lot of gaming and pop culture references as they fit what works for you.
My goal is to make counseling something that you want to do because you find it helpful, and hopefully you enjoy our time together. I like learning what my clients like and how we can help them be successful with the things they like. (I've learned a lot about Fortnite and just how much we can use it in real life.) I like to bring in play, art, and movement (even with adults) so that you don't just feel like you're stuck. I also make sure that I'm meeting your needs, so if anything ever comes up that you want to try I would be more than happy to do so.

I have a lot of experience with Autism, ADHD, Anxiety, Career Counseling, and Suicidal Ideation/Self Harm. I work with clients and their familes to be sure that they are able to communicate their needs in their own unique way.
