Liz Revis, Masters Level Clinician

Liz graduated with a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2022 and is now pursuing professional licensure. Before counseling, she received her bachelor’s degree in English and communications. Following that, she worked in various settings, including retail, the wedding industry, hospitality, and event planning. She believes her experience in customer service serves her well in the counseling field, as counseling ought to be an extension of hospitality.

She describes herself as a client-centered counselor who tends to make space for exploration and validation. Although, she is always prepared for the direction of the session, as she considers time with her clients a privilege. She is primarily connected to psychodynamic and person-centered approaches while looking at client stories through a multicultural and trauma-informed lens. Above all, Liz believes in the duality of a person living a meaningful life while creating space for the pain that often accompanies it. She encourages her clients to embrace their humanity and to consider systemic influences they may have internalized over time.

Liz aims to foster a counseling environment that is warm, safe, welcoming, and sometimes silly. She admits that sometimes therapy can feel awkward, and there is room to embrace all parts of it. She places emphasis on the therapeutic relationship while viewing it as a collaborative effort and normalizing that it is okay not to have all the answers. After all, she believes that clients are experts in their own experiences. Liz views humans (including herself) as ongoing works in progress. However, she aims to promote the acceptance of someone as they are rather than their potential only. She leans into the idea that many problems do not need to be solved; instead, there is a need to explore the strengths, needs, and challenges associated with them. Along with this posture, she sees the inherent worth in each person and strives to connect them to the most empowered and aligned version of themselves.

Liz feels most connected to working with themes and matters such as trauma responses, chronic illness, health anxiety, physical health issues, self-compassion, burnout, diet culture, emotional awareness, work issues, inner child work, women’s issues, boundary setting, and communication/interpersonal skills. She identifies as an LGBTQ+ and neurodiversity-affirming therapist.

When she is not counseling, Liz enjoys spending time with her loved ones and time alone in a quiet space without a hurried pace. She also enjoys dining out, celebrating holidays, writing, exploring the Enneagram personality tool, going to Target, watching reality television, and reading.
