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.

Additionally, she integrates techniques of cognitive-behavioral therapies with other evidence based practices.  Guests that work with Elizabeth walk away with skills training on emotional regulation, setting boundaries and advocating for themselves in their relationships. Her style incorporates Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness, and other Skills work towards committing to actions despite difficult circumstances. Her experience working with a diverse clientele make her committed to providing excellent service to all of her guests

She has spent time traveling to beautiful and exciting places, has studied some interesting topics, and is a huge animal advocate. Guests experience her as humorous, very easy to connect with, informed on various professional industries, and a strong motivator. She is currently accepting new guests at our Wicker Park studios.
