Welcome to LZcybershrink.com, where many who couldn't or didn't want to walk into a therapist's office, long before the pandemic, have found understanding, empathy, compassion, and a lot of skill and experience at helping people deal with life, relationships, and emotions. I'm Liz, and I've worked with clients all over the world with a great variety of issues for 35 years in traditional and online settings. Some of my specialties: alcoholism and other addictions; codependency; eating disorders; dysfunctional families; healing the wounded inner child; learning how to have healthy couple relationships; healing from a history of emotional, physical, or sexual trauma; LGBTQIA issues; exploring or enhancing your creativity; grief and loss; women's issues from a strengths and feminist perspective; spirituality. I welcome people in recovery in 12-step programs as clients. If you have a mental health condition and are receiving medication under a qualified local prescribing professional's care, you must be stable in order to have talk therapy with me. If you might have a diagnosable mental health disorder, I may recommend you be assessed locally before pursuing talk therapy with me. If you are suicidal, online therapy is not the recommended modality. If you become my client, I promise commitment, connection, and confidentiality. I also promise to be clear about our boundaries and what I can and cannot do. I am happy to work with your existing health care team or help you develop one as needed.
The COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet. But now that the vaccine is available, as more people get vaccinated and start to take up daily life again, a new set of issues emerge. Some of you suffered personal losses. Others experienced drastic changes in financial status. You may be dealing with illness or with changes in your living situation. Perhaps it's uncomfortable to make the transition from confinement to social life and crowds of people. Maybe your relationships with people close to you have changed. I am here to provide support, counseling, and therapy to individuals and groups by email, chat, phone, text, and video via Zoom on a one-time, short-term, or open-ended basis. Many, many therapists experienced in face to face practice jumped onto Zoom as a result of the pandemic. I have been helping people online for more than twenty years, and I would be glad to work with you.
