Liz Downey, MS, NCC, LCMHCA

Liz Downey earned her Masters in Counseling from Southern Methodist University, where she specialized in Marriage and Family Therapy. Liz has experience working in a partial hospitalization program with adults experiencing acute mental health needs and chemical dependency, and has counseled individuals and couples in community and private practice settings.

Liz feels privileged to walk beside people through challenging seasons and to be a partner in discovering ways to rethink, self-examine, grow, and develop. Liz wholeheartedly believes that we all possess innate strengths that can be a resource for healing and change. Each person’s story and situation is unique, so she incorporates relevant tools, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), with a person-centered approach that prioritizes the individual needs of each client. She seeks to create an accepting and warm environment where you can feel comfortable and free to share your authentic self.

Liz offers counseling to adults, adolescents, families, and couples. Her areas of interest include assisting clients with concerns about body image and low self-esteem, relationship issues, life transitions, grief, and anxiety. She is a Facilitator of Prepare/Enrich, an evidence-based assessment for couples preparing for marriage or simply seeking additional support for their relationship.

In her spare time, Liz enjoys a great audiobook and long walks with her dog, trying new coffee shops, and attending her local church.
