Elizabeth Seabolt-Esparza, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor
Sometimes in life we find ourselves feeling lost or stuck or maybe we have experienced a great loss or trauma. While friends and family can offer support and solace during these times, developing a relationship with the right therapist can offer a unique and safe space to work through these problems in a way that can’t always be done with loved ones. I take an integrative and non-judgmental approach with my clients and create a safe and nurturing environment for my clients to explore and grow. I am trained in DBT skills as well as EMDR. I often use a holistic and person-centered approach.
My main passion is working with the LGBTQ community. My areas of interest include grief work, trauma, dissociative disorders, HIV, depression, anxiety, and recovery from narcissistic abuse. I have also received training with Dr. Doug Braun-Harvey in Sexual Health in Recovery. I take a sex-positive approach and enjoy working with folks in polyamorous and non-monogamous relationships, as well as members of the kink community.
For the first five years of my career, I worked at the Montrose Center, where I worked primarily with the LGBTQ community. I have worked with survivors of trauma, people struggling with addiction, coming out issues, and people living with HIV. I have also had the opportunity to work with transgender clients as they explore their gender identity and have written letters for clients as needed to access gender-affirming services. Prior to that, I was a research coordinator with Texas Children’s Hospital in their pediatric psychiatric department.
I received my M.Ed. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Houston. While there, I worked as a research assistant, studying minority stress, internalized homophobia, and coping and resilience within the LGBTQ community.
While I work mostly with adults, I do work with people ages sixteen and older.
I offer a free fifteen-minute consultation to see if we are a good for each other. If we are not a good match, I can offer you referrals for therapists who might be a better fit.
Rates: $210 for 50 minute session
I offer the option of an eighty-minute session for $280 for EMDR.
The above rate is the full fee this therapist charges for a standard 50 minute session. However, we do not want cost to be prohibitive of people getting the help they need. All of our therapists provide a portion of their services for a reduced fee to help those who can benefit from psychotherapy but might not be able to afford their full fee.
