Currently not accepting new clients

I believe that life is a journey, with individual challenges and opportunities. All of us need help along the way from different people around us. Sometimes help from a professional is beneficial or necessary.

I am passionate about listening to you and assisting you on your journey to emotional health and dedicated to come alongside you, listen to you and offer professional counseling and psychotherapy.

When human beings experience trauma or severe life stressors, it

is not uncommon for their lives to unravel and functioning to

become challenging in many ways. My passion is bringing

healing and hope to children, adolescents and families who have

survived a traumatic or stressful experience. I enjoy helping them

find a more positive, healthier perception of themselves while

strengthening their resources, relationships and own unique

qualities so they are able to know themselves as peaceful, whole

and safe.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Life events and traumatic experiences may impact relationships, functioning, and mental health symptoms. These symptoms may include depression, sadness, anxiety, irritability, difficulty getting out of bed, attachment issues, and negative thought patterns. I offer professional counseling and psychotherapy to help people improve their mental health symptoms. I value helping people accomplish their therapeutic goals and moving past traumatic events. As a certified EMDR therapist, I’m trained to move the storage of a disturbing memory to a more functional part of the brain. I’m passionate about helping people take the next step in working on their health through therapy.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

There is something in every one of us that lets us know when we do not feel OK. Equally, there is something in each of us that strives to be OK; and we try to move forward; towards feeling positive, loved, connected, secure and having purpose. When someone comes into therapy they are responding to a drive for healing and health. They come to find out and fix what is making them not feel OK. Consider what can happen when your inner self-healing capabilities are engaged; when you are willing to engage in the necessary process to become OK.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

My name is Elizabeth Lira. I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in the State of Oregon, license #T1710 and in California, license #102577. Formerly from California, I have now lived in Eugene for the last year. While I have always enjoyed spending time outdoors it has been in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest that I have truly found my home. My favorite places are either floating on one of the rivers, hiking in the beautiful forest, or spending time on the Oregon coast. Hobbies include, hiking, kayaking, playing guitar, and jewelry making. I have been blessed to work with people from all walks of life, from age 14 to 101 and am always honored to be a part of and a witness to their journey. 

Clinical Social Worker Associate

My passion comes from helping people grow internally as well as external. I believe in meeting people where they are and equipping them with the tools they need to connect with insight and peace. I strive to create a space that feels safe where this work can be done. I believe that each one of us has the capacity to heal and experience health and wholeness. 

Professional Counselor 

Registered  Associate

Life is a journey without a clear road map. We hit bumps, wrong turns, and flat tires along the way. Worry, sadness, and confusion can be a natural response to these problems we encounter. Sometimes it is difficult to know which direction is the best or even if we want to continue the journey. I am here to help you find your way, to find acceptance, and feel strong enough to face the obstacles to your travel.

Marriage & Family Therapist 

Registered Associate

The reality of life is it can be hard and can bring many unexpected changes. Life experiences can overtake our true selves causing us to live beneath who we were created to be. It takes courage, faith, and commitment to reach out for professional help. Are you struggling with 

challenges such as anxiety, depression, or trauma? Are you struggling with relationship issues? It is my passion to come alongside and provide professional counseling to help you discover your  inner strengths as you come to understand and

overcome the issues you face.

Professional Counselor

Registered Associate

Do you feel stuck emotionally and physically? Are you suffering from chronic pain? Are you struggling spiritually? I employ a holistic and integrative approach to mental health and believe that complete wellness can be achieved when a person’s body, mind and spirit are aligned and treated as a whole. I believe that trauma and emotions can get trapped in the body and this creates a cycle of feeling “stuck” in the mind and body as well as contributing to chronic pain and illness. The path to healing is not linear and I will accompany you on your journey to wellness.

Professional Counselor

Registered Associate

Are you suffering from depression, anxiety, or the effects of stress or trauma? Are you experiencing conflict or crisis with your spouse or partner? Maybe you’re a young person having difficulty finding direction and motivation in life–or an adult who has yet to figure out who you are or what you want to be when you grow up? As much as possible, I try to include an awareness of our somatic experiences–the sensations we experience in our bodies in the present moment–in our work together. I firmly believe that healing and positive change can be achieved by doing this kind of body-oriented work together. 

Professional Counselor

Registered Associate

The way that we feel about ourselves has the potential to impact our behavior and mental health greatly. Our past experiences, including traumas, play a role in how we act and feel currently. Have you felt that the negative thoughts that you have about yourself limit your capacity to be present and enjoy friendships or relationships? Are those thoughts showing up in your life as anxiety, depression, or shame? It is my passion to work closely with individuals who are seeking relief from these struggles and want to learn self-compassion. Traditional talk

 therapy is not the best path to healing for all individuals, and I bring the ability to work with clients of all cognitive abilities and neurodiversity.  

Professional Counselor

Registered Associate

Everybody has ups and downs, it is a normal part of life. Talking to a friend or loved one can be incredibly helpful. When you begin to feel “keyed up” all the time for no apparent reason, or feelings like hopelessness and despair seem to take hold, it may be time to talk with a professional. It is my greatest privilege to come alongside you to listen, empathize, and provide professional counseling during this leg of your life’s journey and provide the tools to help you to live your best life possible.

Professional Counselor

Registered Associate

Compassion is the most important thing we can give to ourselves and others. No one should feel alone in their pain and suffering. By letting go of how we think things should be, we enable new possibilities to arise. 

It is my greatest privilege to help you find your balance, become stronger, and more self-confident. To fortify your self-esteem and self-respect. I embrace a holistic approach to therapy that works with the mind, body, and creative spirit.  As a registered art therapist, somatic experience practitioner, and brain-spotting practitioner, I incorporate creative techniques that traditional talk therapy might not be able to process.
