Elizabeth Aljets, MA, LCPC
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor at Wildflower Center for Emotional Health. I work with individuals and couples who are looking to make meaningful change in their life, whatever that means for them. I have clinical experience in working with anxiety, depression, struggles surrounding prenatal and postpartum mental health issues, grief and loss, complex trauma, sexuality and relationship issues.
I accept the therapeutic space to be one of both vulnerability and courage. Taking the first step to reach out for support necessitates bravery: a willingness to go within to explore one’s values as well as one’s flaws. In therapy, I aim to cultivate a safe space where clients feel empowered and motivated to explore what meaningful change can look like for them. My therapeutic approach brings a strong sense of thoughtfulness, planning and collaboration to each session as I believe a collective framework between client and clinician is key to success and overall positive change. In viewing clients holistically I incorporate appropriate evidence-based practices such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness and other skills work to guide the client as they work towards their treatment goals.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from The University of Iowa and received my Masters of Art’s degree in Clinical Psychology with a Counseling specialization. My area of concentration in graduate school was Trauma and Recovery which greatly assisted my work with clients in various outpatient settings. To continue my education I regularly attend trainings on mood disorders, trauma, mindfulness-based practice, ethics and more.
