Elizabeth's clients tell her they especially appreciate how she helps them identify and work out personally authentic solutions and find strategies that foster meaningful, fulfilling relationships. Whenever possible, Elizabeth uses a holistic approach to helping individuals by integrating body, mind and spirit to promote health and well-being. Her own mindfulness practice informs her work, using mindfulness techniques with clients to foster an awareness and a sense of calm in the midst of life's chaos.


She encourages individuals to explore their own strengths and develop their own vision for wholeness. With young people, she uses play, art, yoga, games, or whatever other strategies will best engage the individual youth.
