Elizabeth Deanda, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, licensed to practice in the State of Texas (Lic. No. 52866). I have a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin and over 11 years of work experience with survivors of violence, abuse and trauma. I have worked with survivors of interpersonal violence in different settings such as schools and nonprofits, including children, adolescents and adults. I have worked with a wide range of mental health concerns, including but not limited to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, anxiety, parenting issues, and complex trauma. Most of my work has been with immigrants from Latin American countries in their native language.
I work independently through my private practice providing therapy to children and adults with mental health issues. My focus in both these settings is healing from trauma. My work as a therapist is driven by a strong belief that the best healing is done in connection. In connection to ourselves and to others. This is why I consider the therapeutic relationship to be the most important “tool” in therapy. I am committed to offering a calm and compassionate space in which to explore your concerns and beliefs. I truly believe that all the resources needed for you to heal and thrive are already within you and that you alone are the expert on your experience and your understanding of your life. My goal is to offer my professional training and knowledge in combination with a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship where you can deepen the connection with yourself, your loved ones and find that place within where you feel most like yourself. I look forward to talking with you and exploring how we can work together to address your concerns.
