MA, LPC-S | Director
Elizabeth’s nineteen years of extensive experience and training have well qualified her to work with a diverse client population, and to supervise and train early career therapists. Additionally, she serves as a professional and forensic consultant within her areas of expertise.
Elizabeth began her career working with children on the autism spectrum, providing behavioral therapy and parent training. This passion for serving children led her to a position as clinical director for a non-profit residential treatment center for abused children and adolescents. From there, she transitioned into a private practice setting, where she provided counseling for children, adolescents, and adults with a wide variety of diagnoses and struggles. Seeing families in their entirety, she began to more fully recognize the impact of family dynamics on developmental processes. This sensitivity and curiosity led her to extensive training and research in family focused forensic psychology, with specialization and certification in parenting facilitation and coordination.
Presently, Elizabeth works as director of Houston Family Counseling, where she ensures that all clients, young and old, receive the quality of mental health care she believes should be available to all. She oversees on site training programs for counseling graduate students, post master’s interns, and post doctoral psychologists. Elizabeth also serves as a court appointed parenting facilitator and coordinator for Harris and surrounding counties, helping parents in high conflict situations navigate co-parenting. When not overseeing or engaging in direct client care, Elizabeth provides consultation for organizations wishing to incorporate counseling services into their offerings, and to therapists venturing into private practice. Lastly, Elizabeth continues to enjoy providing counseling services to adolescents and adults struggling with identity, self-esteem, relationships, parenting, and adjustment to major life changes.
