Our Team

Elizabeth Kaufman, Owner, LCMFT, M.S.

Elizabeth's approach to therapy blends evidenced-based practices with warmth, acceptance and humor. She believes our experiences and relationships help shape how we think, act, and feel, and yet we have the incredible capacity to create new and lasting patterns for our lives. It is from this hopeful place that she approaches every client as she listens to their stories and desires for the future. Elizabeth has advanced training in EFT, the leading approach to couples therapy and has years of experience in assisting couples to go below the surface of conflict and find healing and intimacy. In addition to working with couples, she specializes in anxiety and is committed to helping individuals shed the lingering effects of abuse, loss, and other traumas. Elizabeth works with clients at their pace and helps them develop clear steps to achieve their goals.

Elizabeth is an adjunct professor and Advisory Board member for a local university's graduate therapy program. She is EMDR trained, a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and Delta Kappa International Marriage and Family Therapy Honor Society. She welcomes and value individuals of all backgrounds, groups and cultures.
