Elizabeth Ball is a Licensed Counselor Intern (LPC-Intern), Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselor Intern (LCDC-I) and a Therapeutic Equine Assisted Riding Instructor. She has spent much of her time working with individuals with emotional, cognitive, and physical diagnosis to achieve equestrian skills that help promote higher functioning in daily life, and she feels that riding has strengthened and honed her relationship building skills within a diverse population.
Elizabeth believes that it is very important to share a strong relationship with her clients and their families in order to achieve their daily living skill goals. She believes it is extremely important to foster a genuine relationship to help clients feel connected on a deeper level, and at a level they feel most comfortable. Her diverse experience working in Phoenix House with substance abuse clients, as a Therapist at the SMU Center for Family Counseling, and as a Special Needs Counselor has prepared Elizabeth to create strong, therapeutic working relationships with her future counseling clients.
When she’s not counseling, she is working as an Equine Assisted Therapist, trying new foods, travelling, or playing with her dog Woody!
