She/Her/HersLicensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW
Liz Co (LCSW) works with deep thinkers looking for a therapist with soulful intelligence and the compassion of one who's been there. She especially connects with folks who are multiracial, children of immigrants, or otherwise feel like they bridge space between different groups.
Her clients are self-aware, down-to-earth, and stand-out smart, but they can’t feel their inherent worth, their own place in the world. They shower others with their creativity and abundance, but lose track of their own needs. So they end up feeling anxious, exhausted, and irritable.
Working so hard every day, to be amazing, invaluable and, you know, perfect, isn’t giving the connection or ease they’ve always wanted. They recognize (the hell out of) patterns they want to change, they hear whispers of their heart’s desires, and at some point, they just go for it.
Liz approaches therapy as a reality-based process, keeping one eye on the long game of transformative change, and the other on present needs, what's happening now. While it may look (and sometimes feel) like ‘just talking’, this is intense work that takes guts and commitment. But the payoff is hard to describe, because usually it’s a way of being that hardly seemed possible at the outset.
Part of Liz's job is to hold space for this work that feels secure, focused, and curious. Sessions happen in places that call for settling in and letting your shoulders drop a few inches, whether they’re inside, outdoors, or online. She warmly welcomes people who exist outside of dominant structures, and is deeply committed to learning about each person’s experience from them.
Self-actualization - You've done your years of self-exploration—you're keenly aware of your stuck spots, but you can't seem to shake them. Whether they show up as depression, shame, stress, disconnection... we can do the the work to get to the root, so you can grow into the full, unfettered you.
Race & cultural identity - How your racial/cultural/ethnic background relates to your family origins and personal identity. How those experiences, past and present, affect your ability to be your most authentic self.
Trauma - The word 'trauma' covers a lot of ground—continents. Trauma from childhood, especially, can show up in ways that aren't obvious— strange aspects of yourself that you've been aware of, but didn't seem related. Our understanding of trauma is not only booming in knowledge (like neurobiology) but also reclaiming wisdom that is centuries old. Healing from trauma is a full mind-body experience, and I can help.
Medical professionals' mental health - When you work in healthcare (emphasis on 'care') you're perpetually balancing your empathy in response to other people's pain, with shielding yourself enough to face your days without becoming a disconnected automaton. Hoo. And that doesn't even touch the normal work-related stressors.
