Increasing Awareness. Empowering People.

Empowerment-based counseling can help you explore choices that are within your control and find more meaning and purpose in your life.

I believe you deserve to feel valued and understood unconditionally, live without abuse, and find relief from your anxiety or depression. Through the process of working together we can: uncover emotional blind spots, deepen your self-awareness, and achieve greater meaning and purpose in your life.

Regardless of what brings you or your child to counseling, everyone possesses the solutions to their dilemmas. We are all unique, so the approach I take to each client is specific, collaborative, down-to-earth, strength-based and compassionate.

I provide a safe, warm, and encouraging environment that will help you discover how to achieve your goals in therapy through a variety of evidence-based counseling approaches. I help clients, of all ages, by empowering them to become more aware of inner process, silence inner critics, and develop ways of managing painful past experiences.

If you feel hopeless, you are not alone. Together we can uncover tools, learn new skills, and process old pain. I am here to work alongside you in that journey. I teach people how to rewrite their old stories and abandon toxic shame. We all have the freedom to choose what direction our life takes and the responsibility to take control of that freedom. Today you can begin to feel better and achieve the things you want in your life.

Together we will come up with a treatment plan that may include one-on-one sessions, group, and/or family sessions. The treatment plan will change and evolve as we find out what works and what doesn’t work for you.

Treatment varies for each client and is highly dependent on your motivation and work in between sessions.

I wasn’t always a therapist...

Liz DeLandsheer, MA, LPC

Before starting out as a therapist, my first career began as a high school English teacher. It was powerful to be able to facilitate creativity, honesty, and to encourage kids through language art. We all have a unique story and face various obstacles during our lifetime. Sometimes we need objectivity, or a mirror to reflect to us what is difficult to see for ourselves. We all have blind spots.

Counseling, like teaching, continuously inspires me to explore alternative ways to help us through life’s many obstacles without the guilt and shame. Our stories have meaning and value, but sometimes they no longer serve a purpose. It is our choice to believe another version, to rewrite our life in a way that is authentic to our values, and to live in alignment with our truth. It is an honor and a privilege to work alongside you during this time in your life.

Vulnerability is not knowing victory or defeat, it’s understanding the necessity of both; it’s engaging. It’s being all in.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.

Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.

You rarely have time for everything you want in this life, so you need to make choices. And hopefully your choices can come from a deep sense of who you are.
