Elizabeth Harvey is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in New Mexico. She received an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from New Mexico State University and a BA in Romance Languages from Washington and Lee University in Lexington, VA.
Elizabeth’s approach to therapy is integrative, drawing on attachment theory as a basis for understanding relationships; narrative therapy in support of recognizing strengths and assisting clients as they shape the story they are living; and mindfulness for coping with anxiety and stress. Clients are supported if they wish to discuss existential and spiritual topics in an exploration of meaning in life’s experiences.
Elizabeth’s training in graduate school and beyond has focused on grief, trauma, relationships with animal companions, and incorporating nature in therapy. Elizabeth completed counseling internships at La Piñon, the rape crisis center serving Southern New Mexico, and at a local equine-assisted therapy program. She has received certification as a Compassionate Bereavement Care provider through the MISS Foundation, earned a certificate in animal-assisted therapy through Harcum College, and completed the ecopsychology certificate program at Pacifica Graduate Institute.
Prior to working as a counselor, Elizabeth served in federal government and related positions for 15 years.
