Elizabeth “Beth” Deig

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

My name is Beth and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. My goal as a therapist is to create a safe, judgement-free zone where you can embark on your unique journey towards emotional healing. Whether you are coming as a couple or meeting with me individually, I see our time together as collaborative. I believe that all people are capable of lasting growth, change, and healing and that the most potent source of healing lies within you. Together we will move toward the safety and connection you desire within yourself and in your most intimate relationships.

I believe that our earliest experiences with our attachment figures inform our beliefs about ourselves, our relationships, and the world around us. From a young age we find ways to adapt and survive in a world that can be confusing, unpredictable, chaotic, and even scary. These survival strategies that once seemed vital, become so engrained in us that we struggle to see how they impair us. What might it be like to care for these young parts of yourself, to release them from the hard work of protecting you, to help them to trust that safety and connection can exist within? What might it be like to see your partner, scars and all, and connect from a place of deep understanding and care, knowing that safety and connection is what they long for, too. The most rewarding experience for me is witnessing individuals soften and become more compassionate towards themselves and their loved ones. Compassion for ourselves and others opens the door to authentic communication, new perspectives, change and growth.

What Makes Me Credible:

I am experienced in supporting individuals with symptoms of depression, anxiety, the impacts of trauma and loss, and relationship distress. I also have specialized training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. I support couples in all life stages to repair, deepen, and strengthen their attachment bonds. Knowing how important it is for my clients to feel seen, heard, and respected, I utilize evidence-based theories and techniques in our sessions with attention to the client or couple’s unique needs. Some of my preferred approaches include Gottman Method, Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples and Individuals (EFT/EFIT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
