Professional Background

Elizabeth Marston is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in private practice with over 12 years of professional experience working across a variety of settings, including pediatric hospitals, inpatient mental health, inpatient and outpatient substance abuse, and private practice.

A passion for working with people who are often labeled as “difficult” led her to pursue advanced training in traumatic stress studies and to complete basic training for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Presenting at the local and national level on topics including trauma, attachment and regulation allows her to continue to learn and grow as a clinician.

Elizabeth specializes in young adults and adults diagnosed with personality disorders, mood disorders, and complex trauma. She focuses on building an authentic and safe therapeutic alliance based on each individual’s needs. Elizabeth works with clients to process unhealthy patterns, attachment wounds, and traumas that keep them stuck and to build regulation skills that help manage overwhelming emotions.
