About Me

Hello! I’m Elizabeth Thigpen, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Qualified Supervisor for Registered Mental Health Counselor Interns in the state of Florida (License: MH13673). I’ve been working in the mental health field  since 2012. During this time, I’ve had the pleasure of working with individuals of diverse backgrounds in various environments including juvenile justice residential programs, inpatient and in-home care. 

This field can be very rewarding and I’m honored when a client chooses to share their journey with me. Identifying a client’s personal strengths and abilities is a very important part of counseling, and I work with clients to utilize their innate assets to overcome challenges. Areas of clinical interest include treating trauma, depression, anxiety, improving family relationships, stress management and mindfulness.
