Elizabeth Graham, B.A.
MDCS INTERN 2021-2022
I am currently a student at Bridgewater State University seeking a Master of Education degree in Mental Health Counseling, with a projected graduation date of May 2022. Upon graduation, I will be working toward becoming a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC).
As a counselor-in-training, I believe that the therapeutic relationship between client and counselor is of the utmost importance in achieving the goals of my clients. Counseling is a second career for me, having spent over 20 years in fundraising and event planning. The field of mental health has always felt like my calling, and I am honored to be able to bring my life experiences and recent training into the work I do with clients.
I believe everyone possesses strengths and I approach my work with clients with a focus on identifying and highlighting these strengths. I use a person-centered approach, leaning toward a family systems lens, as I believe that family members influence one another’s behaviors. My goal as a counselor is help my clients tap into their strengths and feel empowered to achieve their own goals. My intent will always be to show my clients respect and acceptance, while providing a judgement-free space in which they can gain the most out of the therapeutic experience.
I enjoy working with people from all ages and across all cultures.
