Elizabeth has a passion and calling to provide therapy and coaching to those seeking integration of their faith or spiritual practice with emotional or mental health needs. Using a blend of approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Family Systems Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy, Elizabeth tailors treatment to fit each individual she sees for counseling. Elizabeth is open to discussing any type of spiritual or religious topics and integrating spirituality into counseling as desired.
She enjoys counseling adults, college students, adolescents and children. Topics of particular interest include: depression, anxiety, postpartum and pre-natal concerns, burnout and compassion fatigue, relationship, family and parenting concerns.
After completing the joint program with the Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and the University of Pittsburgh school of social work, Elizabeth earned a Masters of Divinity and a Masters in Social work. She soon after received her license to practice Social work in the state of Pennsylvania. Elizabeth worked for four years for Pittsburgh Pastoral Institute before taking time off to raise her two boys, and is thrilled to have rejoined her practice here. She also has experience working in children’s ministry, youth ministry, as a program staff in a community library, and providing counseling for adolescents and children in a school setting.
When not counseling, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her kids and family, reading novels, singing, hiking and all types of outdoor activities.
