The adage of “ignorance is bliss” exists for a reason, as many of us know, the process of exploring our own flaws can be a terrifying experience. For Elizabeth Aljets, the desire to seek out counseling represents a move toward embracing the courageous part of our identity.
Graduating from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology with a concentration in trauma and recovery, Elizabeth most recently worked as a Senior Clinical Associate with Employee Assistance Programs. Her primary role was working alongside individuals struggling with different forms of addiction, and had experienced various types of trauma. She provided assessment, and implemented short-term behavioral strategies. Additionally, Elizabeth’s work at local non-profits, provided an opportunity to facilitate group and individual therapy.
Elizabeth’s therapeutic work is one that is self-empowering, direct, and motivational. She brings a strong sense of thoughtfulness, planning, and coordination to her work. Whether it’s in the area of addiction, trauma, or collaborating with an entire family system, Elizabeth doesn’t make a distinction between what is large or small change. Instead, Elizabeth desires to co-create experiences for guests that bring about the world they want to see around them.
