Liz Gardner, M.A., LPC
Individual and Family Therapist
As a child and family therapist, my philosophy is simple: No person exists on an island and connecting to the systems around us is key to our therapeutic success. Parenting is never easy, no matter the problem a child faces. Bravest parents are the ones who are willing to seek support and partnership with their parenting struggles. In working with you, I will take the time to understand you for your specific story and offer further professional guidance to enhance parent-child, sibling, and peer relationships.
I specialize in helping children and teens who are experiencing difficulty socially, at home, or at school related to giftedness, learning differences such as ADHD or learning dyslexia. My focus is on supporting you and/or your family through the myriad of complicated dynamics and unseen or unspoken needs constantly occurring in relationships. I believe that most (if not all) hurt occurs in relationship to another. My first goal is to find those hurts that can so easily slip under the radar. We then work together to translate them to patterns and, as your partner in this journey, intervene and heal. My therapy and counseling experience with teenagers, children, and their families for the past six years has taught me that there is nothing more important to contentment and hope than feeling confidence in your primary relationships.
