My name is Elizabeth, and I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor at Stenzel. Before talking about my background, I’d like to focus on my collaboration with clients. Counseling is a collaboration; I have the privilege of working with individuals who are willing to share their life stories in order to find hope, guidance, and healing. Seeking counseling services takes a lot of determination, and it is with admiration that I partner with clients in this process as they strive to gain greater self-awareness, control, and confidence.
I obtained a master’s degree at Wheaton College in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and am currently pursuing a PhD at Regent University in Counselor Education and Supervision. I hold a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor license as I work with clients addressing addiction and recovery. My clinical work has included inpatient and outpatient care with a variety of mental health concerns including trauma, PTSD, and addiction. While trauma and addiction have been the focus of much of my work, they also encompass areas such as grief and loss, self-esteem, guilt and shame, abuse, relationships and boundaries, depression, and anxiety.
I am confident in my ability to increase understanding behind unwanted behavior, teach skills necessary to respond and cope in a healthy manor, and to move forward with the values and goals you, as a client, set.
