Hi, I’m Liz Adcock
Why I’m Interested in this Work
Ten years ago, I traveled the world for a year with just a backpack. I remember the difficulty in the transitions, and in learning a new way of life in a new place. I was surprised to find that I was not alone in this— so many of the people I met were also struggling. Some were trying to figure out how to take care of themselves while helping others. Others were navigating the loneliness that came with taking on an adventure that distanced them from their support network, and was foreign to their previous experience. Living in a new place provides a unique opportunity for transformation, as we are not physically tied to who and what we were before. But our past experiences do not internally disappear— in fact, many times they become louder. My passion is to support those living far from “home” to thrive, heal and transform.
My Professional Info
I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology in 2014 at The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, and am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington, offering online therapy to those who live outside of the United States. My professional experience includes working with adults on a variety of issues and couples work. I have also worked with teens with eating disorders in residential treatment, and worked at a nonprofit as an infant & toddler mental health therapist. I use my experience working with young children to inform my work with adults with developmental trauma, as well as in my work with parents of young children.
On a Personal Note
You can most often find me hanging out by the water with my dog, eating a really good taco, or reading poetry. I traveled to Spain and Portugal last year, and fell in love with “cafe culture” and fado music. The next items on my bucket list are seeing the northern lights and visiting Patagonia.
