Professional statement

Dr. Elizabeth Hentschel is a licensed psychologist and perinatal mental health specialist. While she can address a wide variety of concerns, she primarily works with adults struggling to feel grounded and content in their busy lives. Her clients are planning their families, processing loss, experiencing pregnancy, transitioning into the postpartum period, and developing their roles as parents. They feel overwhelmed. Dr. Hentschel educates and empowers people with skills they can use forever, making short-term treatment very effective.

Dr. Hentschel uses evidence-based treatments, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and mindfulness-based practices. She helps people identify challenging feelings and thoughts, learn helpful coping strategies, and set goals to achieve real, meaningful change in their lives.

Dr. Hentschel has worked in many hospitals and healthcare settings and understands the importance of integrated care. She helps her clients navigate medical settings and will coordinate with other healthcare providers if clients wish. She also values diversity and strives to provide culturally sensitive treatment for each unique client.

Dr. Hentschel provides services using video conferencing, allowing her to work with individuals across Texas. Her clients appreciate saving time, money, and stress associated with traveling to and from an appointment and coordinating childcare. They also enjoy meeting from the comfort of their own space.


Message to clients

I understand how busy and overwhelmed you may feel and how challenging it seems to schedule another appointment. As a mama of two little ones, I get it. I hope you will consider the value of investing in yourself, even for a short period of time, for your sake and your family's. I will do my best to create a warm, supportive space for you, and I will use well-researched approaches to help you set and meet goals that matter to you. If you're feeling down, anxious, overwhelmed, or swept up in the day-to-day hustle and bustle without a clear focus, I hope you'll reach out and learn more about how things could change.
