Elizabeth Piren

Holistic Therapist

I have personally found that through having a counselor or coach, in combination with other mind/body healing modalities, I am best able to take care of myself, building confidence, awareness, balance, and well being. I am a Professional Counselor, licensed in Washington, DC, Virginia, Maryland and New Jersey. I have found that psychotherapy can help to uncover patterns that are not serving us and how we may be getting in our own way to achieve a state of contentment. Working 1:1 with a therapist helps build awareness and is a big step toward significant change. I am trained and certified in trauma focused therapies such as Brainspotting. Trauma focused therapy helps to get to the root of a concern, bringing relief to early onset patterns and difficult emotions. I have worked as a psychotherapist in various settings. I served as Clinical Director at Contigo International, providing therapy to Immigrant survivors of violent crimes and abuse. I was a therapist at an Adolescent Intensive Outpatient Program, Domestic Violence Center, charter school and other outpatient clinics. I specialize in working from a community based perspective with adults, adolescents, and couples, helping them attain balance, fulfilling relationships, and greater understanding. I graduated from Lasalle University with two degrees of BA in Psychology and MA in Clinical Counseling, working in the area of counseling for over 15 years. My personal journey led me to learn about holistic healing methods such as Reiki, Flower Essences of Misiones, Sound Healing and Systemic Constellations. In addition to counseling, I love providing Reiki treatments and trainings. Reiki is a vehicle that has transformed my life in many ways, fostering a greater sense of balance, peace, acceptance and connection. Sometimes talking isn’t enough and we can discover a more natural approach to healing.
