Welcome! My name is Elizabeth and my pronouns are she/her. I look forward to meeting you and working together.
Psychotherapist in Houston,
I am always seeking new training and education regarding dissociation and dissociative disorders. My approach towards dissociation is that it isn't something to be "fixed" but rather the brain doing what it is supposed to be doing when something traumatic and overwhelming happens. I work with clients to help them achieve a sense of agency and autonomy.
I worked at the Montrose Center in Houston which is an LGBTQ center. I worked with members of the community on a variety of different issues including, but not limited to, religious trauma, shame reduction, HIV, grief, and self worth. I also worked with trans people and provided letters for gender-affirming surgeries as needed.
I work with clients to help them work through their grief in a meaningful way that allows to to heal and connect with their grief in a healthy way. I also work with people who are grieving the loss of a pet. I often use EMDR to address grief and loss as well.
I take a person-centered approach with clients which is a non-judgmental approach where the prime objective is offering unconditional positive regard.
EMDR stands for Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization but it's not as scary as the description makes it sound. It is used primarily to address trauma but can also be used in other areas. If interested I can provide more information at intake or during a free 15 minute phone consultation.
