About Elizabeth Anderson

I specialize in blending together East & West Psychologies focusing on mind, body, and spirit. I incorporate mindfulness-based modalities to assist clients in finding a sense of balance & peace in their lives. Troubling emotions & behaviors are often caused by unresolved trauma that has not been identified or worked through. Learning to use mindfulness skills can help you calm the body and mind so that you can begin the process of healing.
