Hi! My name is Elizabeth, but you can call me Liz! I offer support and guidance through all of the ups and downs that comprise the growth of your new family, and let’s be honest, a new version of yourself as a mother. You may be struggling with depression, anxiety, or OCD, changes to your relationship, sleep deprivation and feelings of being overwhelmed, baby blues, concerns about attachment, intimacy, and self-esteem. These are all common challenges that new mamas can face. I can provide services for those facing the pain of struggling to conceive, have suffered loss(es) of pregnancy, or experienced birth trauma.
As a PPD/PPA, birth trauma, and HELLP syndrome survivor, I want you to know that recovery is possible! In a session with me, we will focus on engaging in a holistic, trauma-informed, and strength-based approach toward well-being. We will work on ways to improve your mood, manage your worries, and learn strategies to cope with the stress you are experiencing. I use a range of therapeutic techniques such as CBT, solution-focused treatment, and mindfulness to help clients feel better and enjoy new motherhood.
I am a licensed professional counselor with advanced training in perinatal mental health counseling. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Walsh University and my Master of Education in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Kent State University. My clinical experience includes working with the female population specializing in substance use disorder and trauma in an inpatient setting. During my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family – chasing around my two children and two doggies.
Dealing with life and its challenges can be difficult, and you do not have to go though it alone. I would love to be a part of your village and walk with you through this part of your story.
