Elizabeth was a dedicated counselor and supervisor. During our time working together at Victim Services Center, she worked with her clients and supervisees to stress the importance of managing their own self-care. She introduced me to the concept of Vicarious Trauma and impressed upon me the necessity of balancing my own needs with the demanding work of working with trauma survivors.
Elizabeth fully supported ways to improve our counseling techniques and she connected our department with a well respected play therapist. During my time working with Elizabeth I developed a respect and appreciation for trauma work. She encouraged me to continue with my training and to grow and learn more.
