Liza Harbison, LMFT
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, which means I am trained to work with individuals, couples, and families from a systemic perspective. I believe that our relationships with loved ones, community, and society have a strong influence on our mental health and should be considered in treatment. These systems shape our world and working on how to change toxic family dynamics or navigate prejudice in the workplace, for example, will have a big impact on your wellbeing.
I am passionate about helping my clients find their voice, gain skills to face difficulties with confidence, and heal past hurt and trauma. I strive to create a safe environment for clients to grow and express themselves. I know the courage it takes to walk in the door for the first session, so I meet that courage with respect, warmth, and a nonjudgmental stance.
I specialize in working with couples, men who are new to therapy, and teens and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, self-worth, family issues, and chronic pain. In my work with couples, I use a mix of Gottman and Emotionally Focused Therapy methods to practice healthier communication while also getting in touch with more vulnerable emotions to create connection. With individuals, I use an eclectic approach that includes cognitive behavioral therapy and narrative therapy, as well as mindfulness techniques.
