Elizabeth Wahlig, PhD

Treatment Philosophy

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” – Joseph Campbell

This quote by Joseph Campbell reflects the direction that your work may take with me.  It is my job to listen, observe, and support without judgment.  I believe that people thrive when they feel understood and accepted. I strive to provide these experiences for the individuals who work with me.

Approach to Treatment

My practice is collaborative, solution-focused, and client-centered.  We will take time to clarify your goals and develop a plan aimed at supporting your success.  I frequently work with individuals experiencing anxiety or depression, relationship distress, transitions, or loss.  I also welcome individuals interested in exploring ways to live a more authentic and fulfilling life.
