And, . . . just who is Liz Byrne, LPC and why in the world would you want to see her?
Social distancing and no hugs will continue, and you will be asked to wash your hands coming and going. All surfaces will be wiped after each client, and you may wear masks for the session, if you want. I have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, and will wear a mask only if request for your comfort.
Every scheduled appointment will be sent a link for telehealth, or you may come into the office now.
With years of experience and an open minded, nonjudgmental approach, you will feel comfortable in the small private practice setting Liz Byrne, LPC.
No matter where you have been or what you are dealing with, together, we can come up with a better way to deal with whatever you are feeling.
Liz has recently completed extensive research and studies on Postpartum Depression; its symptoms, how to diagnosis it, talk therapy treatments, and referral sources for medical treatment.
(And clients are welcome to bring their babies in with them, breastfeeding allowed in the sessions.)
Liz Byrne, an Alabama LPC and Idaho State LCPC-S, is a seasoned adult, adolescent, and family specialist. As a licensed clinical professional counselor with almost 40 years experience working with adolescents, adults, and families, Liz has settled in the Huntsville Alabama area.
Liz relocated to Idaho in 2012, after retiring from the State of AL, closing her two private practice offices in south Alabama (Foley & Daphne) and seeing clients at Madison Behavioral Diagnostic and Treatment Services with psychiatrist Dr. Douglas Adams for two years. She is also retired from school counseling & is a past university counseling supervisor and educator. Liz also worked in the University of Alabama Huntsville Counseling Department for a year while they were in transition.
Since returning to Huntsville 8 years ago, Liz has been seeing clients by appointment only three days a week (Tue, Wed., Thurs.). Saturday online appointments will be concerned if asked. Liz is currently taking new patients only if they have Blue Cross/Blue Shield and age 17 and older. Appointments start at 10 and run through 7 pm. Emergency appointments can be made other days and times. If you have been a patient in the past or currently and not on BCBS, Liz will continue to see you and your referrals, only.
Liz specializes in mood disorders, adjustment disorders, and generally anything that causes the quality of your life to be disrupted. Liz loves working with families in transition, families suffering from a loss, those with family members on the spectrum, in transition with gender issues, and men and women who generally are unhappy with their lives, their careers, their marriages, and need to get back on track.
Liz practices Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
There is absolutely nothing we can do to change the past, but there is some things we can do to change the way you view your past. The goal of therapy for Liz is to improve the quality of your life as soon as possible. Together, we can come up with a plan to move you forward.
Your first session is considered an intake, but Liz considers it the opportunity for you to "interview her" and see if you feel you can trust and work well with her in therapy. If not, Liz personally knows many therapists in Huntsville, and she will be happy to help you find someone that will be a better fit for you! She can also refer you to general medical practitioners, psychiatrists, testing or other specialists if need be.
Liz says, "Life is too short for you to waste your money and both of our time if we don't fit. Let's get to business or get you somewhere so you can get started moving forward quickly."
