Hi! I’m Liz.
Licensed Therapist, LMHC
Do you really want something but can’t seem to make it happen? Do you have a gnawing sense you could be doing more or feeling better? Are you unable to get your mind off something that’s bothering you?
I use a blend of insight and practical guidance to help people feel better and make progress in the areas of:
- Chronic pain & wellness
- Goal achievement
Life-Changing Clarity and Practical Guidance, in a Caring Environment
It’s important to me that my clients feel deeply seen, understood and cared for. My clients often tell me they end up feeling thankful for the problem that brought them to see me, because they feel so much better off for what they learned from our work together.
It takes a strong, healthy person to be able to look at their life and say ‘something isn’t working here and I want to fix it.’ Therapy isn’t for crazy people, or just about venting feelings and getting advice. My therapy practice is about having a supportive, trained professional to help you clear the clutter than stands between you and what you want and how you want to feel.
I feel like I accomplished more in one session with Liz than I did working for years with other therapists in the past! Talking to her felt so easy.
She really got everything right away. I didn’t feel awkward or uncomfortable for one second talking to her. It felt so easy. I tried so many things before to feel better that didn’t work. Now everything is so clear to me and I feel so hopeful!
Liz was so good at realizing what I needed. She understood me when I was not even able to understand myself. Without her help I would never be as fulfilled as I am today.
I was feeling a lot of stress and fear when I started working with Liz. She was really patient with me and so good and realizing what I needed. She understood me when I was not even able to understand myself. She really helped me accept myself for who I am, and lifted a burden that was with me for a long time. She helped me experience both hard and happy times through a different mindset and allowed me to freely express my feelings. She’s an incredible therapist. Without her help and support, I would never be as fulfilled as I am today.
I’m surprised how much I was able to accomplish in just several months with Liz- I feel so much happier, calm and lighter now! I’m enjoying being me.
I put off therapy for years because I was always the one that could do it all, the accomplished one, and the helper that it was hard for me to think of myself as in-need. I finally decided to try it because there was too many things on my mind- I was never feeling relaxed and ok. Therapy with Liz has helped me to listen to my body and know what I need and want.
I am always impressed by Liz’s ability to say just one or two things that make me see something in a different, more constructive way.
Liz is a compassionate, intuitive, and warm person, and a skilled therapist. She really understands how the mind and body work together, and guides you in identifying your own patterns and their roots, and processing it all to help you move forward. I am always impressed by her ability to say just one or two things that make me see something in a different, more constructive way. I feel very fortunate to have her in my life.
Throughout my time with Liz, I gained abstinence from substance abuse, turned away from an abusive relationship and made a transition in my career.
Therapy with Liz had a profound impact on my life. Throughout my time with her, I gained abstinence from substance abuse, turned away from an abusive relationship and made a transition in my career. Together, Liz and I discovered patterns in my thoughts and behavior that were holding me back. In therapy with Liz, I never felt judged or pressured into making certain decisions. To this day, I use the insight I gained from my time with Liz to help guide me in life.
Liz has a gift for understanding people very well. She can save your life.
Liz is someone who had a gift of understanding people very well. She patiently works with you to get to know you in order to help you work out what underlying issues are. I highly recommend her, it could save your life without you even knowing it.
I fought the idea of going to therapy… but I was so surprised how great I felt upon leaving each session and how my confidence grew immensely.
I really fought the idea of going to therapy because I thought I didn’t need it and was embarrassed to admit it. Finally I decided to give it a try and I have to admit I’m so happy I did. I did my research and found Liz Wallenstein and I feel she was the perfect fit for me. I first felt nervous and reserved about opening up but Liz found a way for me to relax and feel as if I was sitting talking with a friend or family member.
I found out things about myself that I would have never dreamed of! Then the healing began. Therapy has changed my life.
I have suffered from severe neck pain as well as migraines for the past 15 years. Doctors have suggested everything from physical therapy to back surgery. I took the conservative route and started physical therapy. My symptoms would ebb and flow and I visited his office quite often. After 12 long years my therapist suggested I see a mental health professional. He said after so many years of treatment I still had the same symptoms. He explained to me how pain from the subconscious can cause physical pain, and I took his advice. For me therapy was a better option than surgery! I recommend it to everyone. Thank you Liz!!
Liz works hard to help you come to your own answers… instead of just telling you what to do.
I was feeling trapped, overwhelmed and frustrated that I had no one to talk to about my on-going problems with my wife. I decided to go to therapy because I was tired of being truly unhappy, and wanted to stop procrastinating moving forward with my life. Therapy has helped me see myself better and understand what makes me do what I do. I would recommend Liz because she works hard to help you come to your own answers.
Therapy gave me moments of internal peace and calm… when things clicked the effects were immediate and profound.
I was scared to go to therapy because I didn’t know what to expect from it, and I didn’t want to appear vulnerable and flawed. I tried it because I slowly realized that I was not able to deal with my issues myself; I needed guidance if I ever wanted to overcome my chronic pains and anxiety. Therapy gave me a better understanding of my emotional needs as well as moments of internal peace and calm, where I felt whole and accepting.
I’ve tried therapy in the past, but I would always quit. Now I look forward to my weekly session with Liz. I feel I am making the changes that will help me live stronger and healthier.
I’ve tried therapy in the past, but I would always quit. Then someone recommended Liz Wallenstein as a therapist. The first few sessions we’re difficult and I cried a lot. But I stuck with it because I felt I was making progress after every session. Over the next few weeks I realized I was making healthier decisions and recognizing things going on around me that I never realized before.
I reference what I learned during my sessions on practically an hourly basis.
Although I initially resisted the idea of therapy, it soon became my favorite hour of the week. I see myself and my actions through a completely different lens now. I reference what I learned during my sessions on practically an hourly basis. As I look back, I can undoubtedly say that going to therapy was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I think anyone would benefit from therapy with Liz.
Liz freed me from my own constant negative thoughts, as well as the fear of disapproval from others.
I never felt so comfortable speaking to anyone in my entire life, as I did with Liz. She made me feel so cared for and comfortable opening up. I love that Liz is a great listener, and will share her thoughts with me too, but still pushes me to figure things out on my own. Liz freed me from my own constant negative thoughts, as well as the fear of disapproval from others. I know who I am and what I want now, and I’m ok with it!
Several people highly recommended Liz to me. I was told she was good at helping people get clarity and find themselves… and that’s exactly what happened for me.
I went to Liz Wallenstein for therapy because several people highly recommended her to me. I was told she was good at helping people get clarity and really find themselves. And that’s exactly what happened for me. I was feeling very down and frustrated with my problems when I started therapy with her a few years ago. Now, I am certainly much happier and feel much more confident with my life.
