MS, LPC-Intern, LCDC
Liz received a Master of Science degree in Counseling from Lubbock Christian University in 2014. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern, an Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapist (EMDR for trauma resolution), a Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor and a Certified School Counselor.
Previously, Liz fulfilled a hospice counselor practicum experience, and then worked as a Counselor with The Ranch at Dove Tree (residential treatment center for addiction) for two years. This opportunity allowed her to gain a great deal of knowledge in treating clients with alcohol and/or drug addiction and co-occurring disorders such as eating disorders.
Liz’s formal education has prepared her to work with individuals, couples, families, and groups of all ages. She has experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, self-harm, grief, behavioral issues, substance abuse, addiction recovery, codependency, Adult Children of Alcoholics, coping skills, pre-marital counseling, marital conflict, parenting, and family conflict. Additionally, Liz learned to integrate Christian principles (for clients who request to pursue a faith-based recovery) through the counselor education she received with LCU. She places much value on the term “perspective,” as she believes that with perspective comes healing and the ability to renew opinions, behaviors and perceptions. She feels extremely passionate about working with and helping others.
Liz is currently working as a counselor at Breath of Hope Professional Counseling and the Student Support Center in a San Antonio High School under the supervision of Kimberlee Daughtry, LPC-S. She looks so forward to meeting and working with you.

“Everyone has been made for some particular work, and the desire for that work has been put in every heart.”
Rumi, 13th Century Persian Poet
Rumi reminds me that my desire to serve others as a professional counselor has been a faithful companion on my life’s journey, slowly taking shape along with me as I strove to unite the passions I’ve cultivated for learning, self-discovery, and service of others. I draw from my many years as an educator, as well as my own training and studies, to help others along their paths toward healing, self-acceptance and joy. Taking an eclectic approach informed by diverse theoretical frameworks (Existential Counseling, Relational-Cultural Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), my holistic understanding of wellness allows for each client to customize their personal goals for our time together. I wholly respect where each individual and family presently is, and devote myself to empowering them to reach greater levels of satisfaction with their lives. Thank you for your courage in inviting me on your journey as you discover more about your life’s greatest work: you!
