Elizabeth Myers, LCP

Philosophy of Care

Elizabeth “Beth” Myers is an early career Licensed Clinical Psychologist (LCP) in Virginia with over 6 years of experience providing individual, family, and group counseling to children, adolescents, adults, and families dealing with depression, anxiety, traumatic stress, grief, self-esteem issues, life adjustments, and the chronic experience of suffering and hopelessness. More specifically, she has a particular interest in working with adolescents and young adults facing transitional experiences, those impacted by traumatic life events,

Beth completed her doctoral degree in the Clinical Psychology (PsyD) Program at Marshall University in December 2020. While she finds all aspects of mental health equally important, Beth has particular interests in models integrating the impact of early attachment patterns on overall adult functioning and interpersonal effectiveness. She also has special interests in trauma-informed models of treatment and mindfulness practice, as well as working alongside caregivers to develop more effective parenting strategies as well as skills to improve the caregiver-child relationship. Beth helps clients create a “life worth living” through a dialectical behavioral therapy-influenced model, so that clients feel understood and accepted in their suffering as they create a balance between acceptance and autonomy for change.

Beth is dedicated to delivering compassionate and person-centered treatment while also providing a non-judgmental and empathy-centered practice. She deeply believes that every person is capable of growth and change through vulnerability and trust within the context of a strong, therapeutic relationship. She hopes to offer you a chance to succeed as you both work together towards your personal goals.
