Elizabeth is an empathetic and flexible individual who is a strong advocate of self-empowerment. She believes that every individual has the potential to achieve self-actualization, however, due to obstacles or limitations in life, they require a non-judgmental and safe therapeutic environment and guidance to achieve their true potential. She is driven to help individuals discover and connect with the intrinsic beauty and wisdom of the self, believing that the motivation to strive naturally, flows from that discovery. She is committed to lifelong learning and continues to improve her clinical skills to provide holistic counselling for her clients.
