Liz has 8 years of clinical experience in the United States and Canada. She has pursued post-graduate training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), Multisystemic Therapy (MST), Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC), and Motivational Interviewing (MI) as well as skills training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy. She is interested in pursuing trainings specific to 2SLGBTQ+ and neurodivergent clients, and is a member of both communities.
Liz is passionate about creating welcoming, transparent, collaborative spaces where people feel safe enough to be vulnerable. She has worked with individuals, couples, families, and groups in various capacities, and enjoys the privilege of witnessing human resiliency. Liz employs a casual, personal, and professional approach from an intersectional framework that encourages others to dig deeper within, become self-aware and assured, and (re)install the skills to move on as healthier and happier people. She finds immense value in ongoing personal development and works to continually identify and dismantle personal and professional biases.
Liz was born in Canada, but moved to the United States as a child and spent most of her life in Cleveland, Ohio. She lived in Boston, Massachusetts before repatriating, and is thrilled to have planted intentional roots in the Guelph area with her partner and two children. In her spare time, Liz enjoys seeking out new knowledge and experiences that spark passion and connection including sustainability and social justice (however, she doesn’t play a warrior, she’s currently a Life Cleric in her weekly D&D game).
