Here she assisted in a study on the effects of parental depression and anxiety on children preschool aged and older.

Lizzie is interested in working with children, adolescents, adults, families and couples. Her clinical interests are wide and varied, but she specializes in Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Video Game/Social Media consumption management, career issues, and ADHD. She has a focus in treating anxiety caused by forces outside the clients control, such as public policy changes, environmental stressors, and international conflict
Clients of any age can encounter challenges when it comes to safely navigating digital landscapes and the constant changes to our socio- economic environment. Many people have developed strategies for dealing with the hectic nature of life that once were useful, but no longer serve them and may actually harm them. No one exist in a vacuum and it is fundamental to understand the intersections of identity that each client holds as well as their social environment to affect change. Her approach to therapy is grounded in Internal Family Systems (IFS) and employs Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), and Expressive Arts Therapy. Her work with clients is strongly rooted in Feminist and Ecological understandings of all people.
