Lizzy Crowne, LPC-Associate —
Supervised by Julie Jones, LCDC, LPC-S
As a therapist and a fellow human, I believe that our life experiences can interfere with the trust we have in ourselves, leaving us with thoughts like “I don’t know what I want”, or “I don’t deserve XYZ”. With me, therapy is the process of reconnecting with yourself in order to turn up the volume of your powerful intuition and inner wisdom. Through this process, I hope you will be empowered to move towards the life you envision for yourself. You’re capable and worthy, and it’s all possible.
I am honored to work with people from all walks of life, and I feel most called to work with adults, especially women and LGBTQIA+ folks. I enjoy working with adult survivors of abuse, including systemic abuse, and abuse endured in childhood. Orienting towards social justice is an absolute priority for me, both in my personal and professional life. I acknowledge that cultural competency is not a destination, and commit to a lifetime of continued learning to best serve all people who may walk through my door.
I align with a non-pathologizing approach to therapy. This means that I view “symptoms” as traits or behaviors that our minds and bodies have adopted to protect us from further harm. Yes, even the parts of ourselves that cause us distress, or interfere with our relationships, or feel hurtful... even these parts are trying to protect us from harm. I believe one powerful way to move towards healing is by strengthening and reclaiming our connection to our bodies through our minds. I am a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher, which informs my holistic approach to mental health; the mind, body, and spirit are so connected, it is essential that they work together to help us heal. As an eclectic therapist, I pull from more than one modality. I am trained in EMDR, and am drawn towards working with Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Experiencing, Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness, but know that each client will have different needs, so we'll work together to find what fits. Lastly, I value joy and humor, so I hope that we will laugh together too!
I strive to make you feel safe, and seen, and I deeply believe in your resilience.
The Whole Me
I am passionate about being connected to the fabulously weird Austin community. You'll likely find me practicing (or teaching!) yoga, selling my stained glass art at local markets, enjoying vegetarian meals around the city, or hiking the trails. As a proud former Emo-kid, nothing makes my inner teen happier than going to see live music. I have two rescued pitties, so when I'm not running around experiencing all that ATX has to offer, I am probably watching re-runs of The OC with the dogs.
