Elizabeth Harvey is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in New Mexico. She received her MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from New Mexico State University and her 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, including as senior staff in the United States Senate and in the national security community. As a former government professional, Elizabeth has an appreciation for the challenges encountered by government, national security, military and first responder personnel and offers tailored support to clients working in these fields.
As a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) working towards independent licensure, Elizabeth is practicing under the supervision of Dr. Elaine Foster, a prescribing psychologist. Learn more about Dr. Foster and her practice here: Elaine Foster, Ph.D., ABPP.
