COVID-19 Update: Elizabeth McGinnis is providing tele-health sessions at this time and is accepting new clients. During the free 20 minute initial consult, please let her know if you are having financial difficulties at this time. She is offering 12 sessions at 50% off while the lockdown is in place to help and give back to the community for anybody who has been impacted by the pandemic. This includes essential workers, anybody who has lost a loved one to the virus, or anybody who has lost their job because of the virus.
Elizabeth McGinnis brings a curiousity, hope, and belief in you into the relationship. The process of healing from the past and building new relationships into the future that you are excited about is her passion. Daily stresses of kids, work, slights, emotional wounds, the past, and the world can lead to feelings of depression, overwhelm, and/or burnout. The energy to work on changing our environment and healing can feel overwhelming and impossible. Elizabeth believes in providing a space that is calm and compassionate that gives you the space you need to reclaim who you are and the joy in your life.

The philosophies Elizabeth works from include finding the meaning in your life, speaking our emotional truth through our needs and feelings, and building secure and healthy relationships:

At Silicon Valley Therapy, she specialize in working with trauma and vicarious trauma for first responders and veterans. In addition, her passion is helping couples reconnect to each other after having children. Whether because of post-partum depression or the everyday stress in the change in family dynamics or an emotional affair, re-connecting as lovers and partners takes work and commitment and she's there to help you through this changing and difficult stage in your relationship. 
Elizabeth starts with a free 20 minutes phone consultation so you can get to know her and her style. In the first session, as she gets to know you, she focuses on discovering and clarifying your goals and the key obstacles in your life. Together, you create a plan that works at your pace and your comfort level to build the skills and the insight that you and/or your relationship need to build a life that feels secure and healthy.  
Elizabeth has over 3 years of experience helping individuals, couples, and families. She has a Master's Degree in Mental Health Clinical Counseling from Palo Alto University and is registered with the State of California as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor.
