About Our Practice

Dr. Liz Tolliver

The truth is we all could use some counseling. Whether it is for a specific concern, or a safe space to process ongoing events, I am honored to be part of the process with those I work with. I am committed to supporting clients in removing barriers that keep them from living their most fulfilling lives. I work with clients to cultivate a safe space for processing and check in often to ensure we are on the same trajectory.

I believe clients and counselors must work together. Clients bring with them their own worldview which has been shaped by their experiences, therefore counseling is directed by the needs of the client. While I approach each client through a trauma-informed lens, I am intentional in my foundational use of feminist and attachment theory. In addition, I bring many interventions, such as card decks, sand tray, creative counseling techniques, and somatic work into counseling. I believe it is only possible for a client to feel fully witnessed if they find meaning and connection to the work they are doing.

Licensed Mental Health Practitioner

I am an Independently Licensed Mental Health Practitioner with more than a decade of experience. I graduated from West Virginia University in 2009 with a master’s in Counseling, specializing in both clinical mental health and school counseling. Prior to entering my doctoral program, I gained experience in the areas of substance abuse treatment, health management, and early telehealth counseling serving rural communities in West Virginia. I received my doctorate degree in 2018 in Counselor Education and Supervision from the University of Northern Colorado, with a specialization in Child and Adolescent counseling with an emphasis in play therapy. I have experience in the areas of grief counseling and working with individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ population. I am an unwavering advocate for social justice, inclusivity, equity, and access to mental health care for all humans. Most recently, my clinical, professional, and personal experiences have led me from academia and into private practice eager to work with children, adolescents, and individuals open to the idea of change.
