Elizabeth Tyrpak is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. She received her master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from Oakland University and bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan. Before joining Chicago Clinical Associates, Elizabeth worked in a variety of settings, including community mental health, outpatient centers, the nonprofit sector, and higher education.
She specializes in working with adults and couples affected by a broad range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, trauma and loss, relational conflict, and general life transition or imbalance. She also enjoys working with those who are focused on personal growth to enhance their overall wellness, career, or relationships. Elizabeth is particularly interested in distress rooted in one’s family of origin, transition faced in emerging adulthood, and the impact of trauma across the lifespan.
Her approach to working with clients is warm and supportive, centered around the belief that every person has unique strengths to cultivate. She typically uses a holistic approach that integrates all important aspects of clients’ lives to steadily make progress towards therapeutic goals. Her professional interests include integrating modern cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, and psychodynamic interventions. Additionally, Elizabeth has been trained in EMDR, a specific treatment used to address various life traumas.
In her free time, you can find Elizabeth trying out new recipes and striving to brew the perfect cup of coffee. She is always on the hunt for great travel destinations and, interestingly enough, loves spending time in airports.
