Fred Rogers once said, “Anything that’s human is mentionable, and anything that is mentionable can be more manageable.” Elizabeth strives to embody this philosophy approaching therapy as two equals coming together to make what feels unmentionable worthy of words. She identifies first as a DBT therapist, though utilizes an integrative approach when working with individuals outside of the comprehensive DBT program. She enjoys working with teens and adults presenting with the following concerns: anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, grief and loss, self-harm and suicidality, Borderline Personality Disorder, relationship issues, and adjustment and life transition issues.
