Liz’s Bio:

Liz is a Clinical Social Worker registered with the OCSWSSW.  She has 6 years of clinical experience in the United States and Canada. Liz has post-graduate training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS), Multisystemic Therapy (MST), Attachment, Regulation, and Competency (ARC), and Motivational Interviewing as well as skills training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focused Therapy. She is currently pursuing skills training in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and is excited to bring new skills into her practice!

Liz is passionate about creating welcoming, 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.  

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 before repatriating, and is thrilled to be planting 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 reading and writing, and she thoroughly enjoys being in nature (especially rustic camping).
