Elizabeth “Lizy” Wiggins, Therapist
(LCSW, EMDR II)
(AR License 7214-C)
As a clinical therapist, I have years of experience helping individuals and families struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem, interpersonal problems, trauma-related stress, and/or difficulty coping with environmental stressors. I enjoy helping others improve insight regarding their internal experiences so they might more easily navigate through stressful life events to reach their personal goals. My goal is to help others better regulate their emotions, improve communication, and cope productively with stressors. I am passionate about providing person-centered, evidence-based care when serving others to best meet their needs. I am grateful for the opportunity to assist individuals and couples as they strive to improve their quality of life.
I am an EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Certified Therapist. I enjoy facilitating positive change for clients recovering from recent crises as well as those who have suffered for years with complex trauma symptoms. Various forms of abuse, unhealthy relationships, unexpected losses, witnessing violence or tragedies, emergency responses, adverse childhood events, etc. can all negatively impact a person’s functioning in a multitude of ways. With effective treatment, these negative life events can be processed productively to help decrease sensitivity to the trauma and develop healthier responses to stress overall. I am also a certified CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) therapist and Brainspotting practitioner. I am actively developing skills in Ego State Therapy and Internal Family Systems Therapy to assist individuals who experience varying degrees of depersonalization or dissociation. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help couples improve communication and/or repair attachment wounds. In addition to standard outpatient sessions, I am excited to offer intensive therapy options for those who need rapid results in a short amount of time. In practice, I take pride in combining clinical expertise with empathetic understanding to provide successful treatment. I look forward to meeting you.
