Elizabeth is an intern at Millennium Counseling Center. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in English from Boston College and is currently pursuing her M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at DePaul University. Prior to entering the field of counseling, Elizabeth spent over 15 years in advertising working to connect brands with consumers in authentic ways. Her decision to pivot fields sprung from a deep desire to help people transform their lives by emotionally connecting them with their own stories.

Elizabeth works to establish a collaborative process, helping clients explore their unique life’s story and then re-write the painful or harmful parts of their narratives. By doing this, clients can be empowered to experience more joy, self-acceptance and peace. She approaches her work with an open heart alongside a belief in the power of an empathic voice to affect meaningful change.

Elizabeth strongly believes that “the human experience is finite, but interpretation and perception of that experience are infinite.” (Jonathan J. Orr)
