Elizabeth has specialized training from the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy on recovery-oriented cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for patients with schizophrenia.

She believes that no case is too tough, no one is beyond help, and that every individual, including those struggling with severe mental illness and incarceration, deserves to have hope and help with achieving a more rewarding and peaceful life.
