Pronouns: she/her/hers

Hi! My name is Elizabeth and I’m a Licensed Clinical Social Worker here at Deep Eddy Psychotherapy. I want to share a little bit about myself and clinical experience so you might get a sense of who I am and decide if we might be a good fit for one another. But first, I want to congratulate you on taking this step on wanting to work on yourself. I find it courageous to reach out for support.

I Work Best With:

I work with teens (13-17), adults, parents, and medical professionals with a wide variety of needs. Here is what I typically work on with clients; however, it is not limited:

  • Anxiety
  • Coping skills
  • Depression
  • Self esteem
  • Relationship issues
  • Grief
  • Religion and spirituality
  • Chronic medical conditions
  • Life transitions
  • Stress
  • Sexual abuse
  • Childhood abuse and neglect
  • Trauma and PTSD

My Background

I have always been passionate about helping others navigate life’s challenges which led me to a career in clinical social work. Through my work, I have found individuals to be incredibly resilient. I believe everyone has strengths and I love empowering individuals to start making changes in their life. I believe in a collaborative approach and partner with my clients to create impactful goals to move forward on the journey towards healing and happiness.

I received my Bachelor in Social Work from Baylor University and my Master in Social Work from Florida State University. I spent the first half of my career working in child welfare. I gained specialized skills working with children, adolescents and families impacted by child sexual abuse. I then spent seven years diversifying my clinical experience at a medical clinic where I provided behavioral health services to some of the most underserved, at-risk individuals in Austin. I saw clients ranging from young children to seniors with a variety of mental health and chronic medical conditions. I also have seven years of experience working in academic medicine through a Family Medicine Residency Program. I gained an understanding of the stress young professionals face and recognize that a high-pressure job often leads to feelings of burnout.

Beyond my work as a clinician, you might find me exploring some of my favorite things about Austin including the Greenbelt, live music or the amazing food scene.

I look forward to meeting with you!
