It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,
and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.

Wendell Berry

Hey, there. I'm Liz.

I work with adults who live with anxiety, depression, and complex PTSD.  

I use lots of experiential exercises as well as concrete educational tools in session to help us explore your emotional experience and make connections between what's going on in session, what's happening outside of session, and what happened in the past. I especially love co-creating supportive spaces for healing with people in the queer community, and with women who are living through a mid-life transition.

I'm a mid-life career changer; for 20 years before training as a clinical social worker, I was a an educator, advocate, and Spanish interpreter in the language services field.

If a formal bio is more your thing, you can connect with me on LinkedIn to see the details of my graduate training and education.

Practice areas

I practice therapy under the supervision of Anne Slater, LCSW-S
Psychotherapy

I work with adults who live with anxiety and depression. I love to use experiential work to explore themes that come up in session. I completed a trauma fellowship as part of my graduate work, and my current work focuses on providing group, individual, and family therapy for women who live with the legacy of trauma.

Adaptive Yoga

I'm a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) - 200 with Yoga Alliance, and I have additional training in chair yoga, adaptive yoga, and trauma-sensitive yoga. I love to explore how we can make yoga accessible to everyone, even if you can't get down on (or up from) the floor.

I'm currently a Somatic Experiencing International® trainee. Integrating body-focused work into my practice helps us understand how to keep you steady while working through traumatic material. This work goes beyond a cognitive knowing, and supports a bottom-up approach that focuses on the nervous system and your physical experience.

Coaching for Interpreters

The stress and imposter syndrome that comes with interpreting is real. I've been there myself, and before beginning my work in psychotherapy I worked as a coach for interpreters whose traumatic  experiences interfered with their work in the booth.
