Elizabeth Novak, LMSW
I was raised in a small community, with a deep love for family and nature. My own first experience in counseling confirmed ideas I always felt deep inside but had no words to describe. Learning about healthy self-development and relationships changed my life and created a passion to share this knowledge with others.
Human beings were made for connection, and my work with clients is based on relational neuroscience - the study of how each life experience has shaped our brains and behavior. From birth until death, we seek safe, responsive relationships necessary for stable, healthy, happy lives. Difficult experiences can affect physical, mental, and emotional health and development. My goal is to create a safe space where clients can explore their closest attachments, life experiences, thoughts and beliefs, their strengths, their challenges and traumas (whether big or small) and to consider how all of these have interacted to influence their capacity to lead optimal, abundant lives. Together we pursue their own inner wisdom, insights, new life strategies, and healing.
