Lizzy Bain


Lizzy is a clinical intern with Potter Counseling completing her M.A. in Counseling from Townsend Institute of Concordia University Irvine.  She attended Meredith College for her undergraduate degree in Child Development with a minor in Psychology and a Birth-Kindergarten teaching licensure.  Lizzy has worked in a variety of school settings with children and families over the past 15 years which sparked a specific interest in social and emotional wellbeing and development.  Most recently, Lizzy has been a curriculum developer and parent facilitator of Learning and Empowerment for Adoptive Families (LEAF) through Center for Child and Family Health.  She presently facilitates Circle of Security Parenting®groups with SAFEChild.  

Lizzy values emotional safety and seeks to create a non-judgmental atmosphere of kindness and empathy to foster healing and connection.  Lizzy feels especially passionate about partnering with individuals and families who are facing challenging situations.  She longs for others to have a safe space to grieve and celebrate the complexities of the human experience. Lizzy specializes in unique parenting circumstances, depression and anxiety, disenfranchised grief, life transitions, spirituality, self-compassion, and boundary work.  When she is not parenting her two children or working, Lizzy loves paddle boarding, NC day trips, doing yoga, being with friends, live music, and reading.
