Elizabeth is also passionate about counseling individuals with substance abuse disorders. She utilizes techniques from Motivational Interviewing and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help clients with addictions gain insight, motivation, and skill sets to nurture long-term recovery from the disease of addiction.
Elizabeth believes that each individual already has the potential to improve their lives, and as a counselor, she enjoys helping individuals find their own tools and skills to accomplish their goals. She feels this quote resonates with the therapeutic relationship that she build with her clients- “The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change”. She feels that the therapeutic relationship is one of the best indicators of success and she takes time to establish rapport with her clients, so that they can feel comfortable sharing and working towards growth with her.
