Elizabeth honors and respects the vulnerability it takes to reach out for therapy. Her primary goal is to provide a non-judgmental and empathetic space where clients can feel safe and be open to truly listen to themselves.
Elizabeth believes in a collaborative approach in therapy where she and the client work together to develop goals, understand challenges, and build upon his/her/their strengths. She believes in the importance of the relationship and integrates an interpersonal approach while also incorporating concrete skills to help the client manage their emotions and thought processes. Elizabeth primarily uses cognitive behavior therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, EMDR, and mindfulness skills.
Elizabeth received her undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University and obtained a Master of Science in Social Work from Columbia University. She has been in the clinical field since 2007 and has worked in a variety of clinical settings including college counseling, residential treatment, and outpatient private practice.
Elizabeth has experience working with college age populations and adults of all ages. Elizabeth offers individual counseling for adults who are experiencing anxiety, depression/mood disorders, OCD, suicidal thoughts, grief and loss, trauma, and life transitions.
Elizabeth is excited to be a part of the Community Counseling Center and strongly believes in their mission to provide therapy for all. Elizabeth moved to Wilmington in 2015 from Atlanta, GA and is originally from Smithfield, NC.
