Hi! I’m Liz. I’m a Provisionally Licensed Professional Counselor (PLPC) in Missouri. I graduated from Webster University with a Master’s degree in Counseling with an emphasis in Clinical Mental Health.

Liz Wooten

MA | PLPC | NCC

I am currently under supervision since I recently graduated but have been working in mental health for over ten years. I have worked with people with Autism in the community, done family case management, employment case management, and crisis work. The perk for you with all that info is that I have a lot of different things I’ve experienced and bring into our meetings.

Attachment Theory

Emotion Foused

Emotion-focused therapy works on how your emotions impact your daily life

Geek Therapy

Geek therapy uses all things nerdy to bring interests from pop culture into therapy

I really enjoy bringing the things we like into sessions to help understand mental health (like I have a whole book on how Harry Potter can be therapeutic). I actually enjoy it so much I’m working on a certification on how to bring all things geeky into counseling. Does your child need counseling? Let’s team together today to get them the help they deserve.

Adventure Awaits

I’m basically a huge mental health nerd who loves to share the random knowledge I have with others, in doing so I strive to be a collaborative counselor who helps you set the goals you want and helps you find the tools for your own success.

Counselors have to have a lot of training before we can help people and we gotta tell people what that is; but we do it with all these letters no one knows until they google.

Here’s a guide.

MA – I have my graduate degree in counseling; it’s a Master of Arts

PLPC – I’m licensed by the state of MO to be a counselor under supervision (at least for another year before these letters change)

NCC – I’m a Nationally Certified Counselor by the The National Board for Certified Counselors. (Basically I took more classes in grad school and have some additional training.)

For me, I love helping the people I work with grow in whatever ways they need. People come to counseling for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes it’s because they know something is off and want help feeling different. Sometimes people recognize they just feel better when they are able to have someone help them learn more about themselves.

Well, that’s easy, I have 6 dogs. Not a bunch of little dogs like I’m sure you are imagining. The big kind. Just big fluffy doggos. You could say that too much of one thing is a bad thing, but guess who’s never cold at night?

Like is kind of an understatement. I honestly find them therapeutic, and you would be surprised at how applicable they are to mental health. It’s honestly what got me into “nerd” culture and where I was introduced to Geek Therapy.

If you’re struggling emotionally and need to talk to someone, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, I can’t be with you 24/7. It may take me a few hours or even a day to respond to you since Enlitens doesn’t do crisis management. Feel free to call me or schedule an appointment but if you need something right now try one of these resources.
