Elizabeth is the Director of Operations at EBTCS.
Elizabeth received her undergraduate degree in psychology with honors from the University of Washington. From early on, she knew she wanted to pursue a career in clinical psychology and upon her admittance to the University of Washington, began volunteering in psychology research labs. She spent time looking at parent-child interactions and how parents influence children’s self-regulation. Also during this time, Elizabeth distinguished herself by becoming a part of the psychology honors program. With this unique opportunity, she had the chance to design her own research study and looked at the effects of social anxiety on mindfulness and interpersonal functioning.
Upon graduating, Elizabeth continued to be involved in research examining the development of children’s self-regulation, as well as safety-signal learning in children whose parents have PTSD. With her extensive research experience, she was then hired as a research assistant at the University of Washington examining the effects of parenting strategies and mindfulness on children’s socio-emotional development and effortful control. Elizabeth began volunteering at EBTCS to expand her knowledge of outpatient psychology and gain exposure to psychology in a clinical setting. Due to her experience and strong understanding of care at EBTCS, she was hired as a Client Services Coordinator for the Anxiety Center. Elizabeth enjoys watching and playing sports, running, and yoga.
