Hi, I’m Elizabeth!
I’m an Annapolis area therapist and I specialize in helping adults manage stress and anxiety. I’ve struggled with anxiety so I understand how hard it can be to reach out and ask for help. I believe that therapy can change how we feel about ourselves and others.
How Counseling Can Help
If you feel like:
Your life isn’t satisfying.
You’d like to have more purpose in your life.
You’re tired and stressed — because you’re constantly giving to others.
You don’t have time to take care of yourself.
You believe there is something inside you that makes it hard for you to feel truly connected to yourself and the people you care about most.
I want you to feel more balanced day-to-day so you can live with more ease and contentment. I want you to feel an internal sense of comfort and safety at your core because I know it can help you feel more grounded and present in your life.
My goal is to help you learn to manage your stress and anxiety so that you can move forward feeling calm and confident. I support you as you examine the worries and fears that hold you back, as you explore your feelings with mindfulness and self-compassion, and as you reconnect with yourself and others.
I want you to rediscover your voice and your internal strength, so that you can live a more fulfilling life.
Why I'm A Therapist
I know from traveling my own path, and from helping others on their journey, that fear and worry can make it hard to reach out for help. I want to help you reconnect with yourself and progress toward your goals.
I believe that therapy, mindfulness, self-compassion and loving-kindness can help you to acknowledge your fears and quiet your inner critic—the voice that constantly judges and stops you from taking chances or making changes. That’s why I created Progression Counseling. If you want to know more about my counseling perspective, you can check out Biz's Blog here.
I believe you deserve to heal the life experiences that have caused you to feel stressed, fearful of change, and full of self- doubt or self-judgment. I want to help regain the life you want to live.
I believe that you have the courage and ability to progress through this journey of self-awareness and healing, and to find and move towards the person you long to be. That’s why I hope you will call or email me for a free consultation today!
