About Elizabeth

I’m Elizabeth, a trauma-informed therapist who works with people who have been feeling overwhelmed and stuck for a long time, and are now ready to invest in a more peaceful and sustainable way of being in the world.

My clients desire a life that contains more ease, more joy, and more authentic connections. I offer weekly therapy sessions and Therapy Intensives for individuals and couples. I also offer curated wellness-focused retreats. 

We could be a good fit for working together if you long for more joy and less turmoil in your life, but you’re not quite sure how to get there without completely upsetting the apple cart. Perhaps you feel stuck due to an episode in your life that continues to impact your day-to-day, or perhaps there was a rupture in an important relationship that you can’t seem to move past (even though you truly want to!). I help couples and individuals get clear about what is not working in their lives and what is, and I help them create a roadmap to move closer to the life and the relationships they desire and deserve. 

Therapy Specializations

My diverse range of modalities offers tailored approaches to healing and growth, ensuring personalized support for every individual’s journey.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidenced-based therapeutic model designed to help people recover from painful experiences that continue to negatively impact their lives. EMDR works well for single-event traumas, recurring traumas, and distressing childhood events.

Equine Therapy

Equine Therapy utilizes the power of relationship and connection to support people who want to heal from traumatic events, learn more about regulating their emotions in healthy ways, and to develop skills that foster mutually beneficial relationships.

Weller Counseling is certified in Equine Therapy from two primary thought leaders in the field of equine therapy: Eagala and Natural Lifemanship (NL). Certification in Eagala and NL demonstrates years of focused learning in the field.

Eagala is an experiential strengths-based program designed to empower clients to strengthen their relational skills and communication through partnering with humans and horses.

Natural Lifemanship is an attachment-based, trauma-informed equine therapy model that offers experiential interventions to help people reconnect with loved ones, heal from painful events, and learn how to shift negative patterns that no longer serve them well.

For all Equine Therapy offerings, I partner with the herd at Horse Sense of the Carolinas, an internationally-recognized Equine Therapy facility situated on 110 rolling acres in Marshall, NC.

Equine Therapy can be incorporated into Retreat offerings, as well as Individual and Couples Therapy Intensives.

The EarthBody Institute Ecotherapy certification program facilitates weaving nature-based mindfulness practices into the therapeutic process to help people connect with their deepest values and collective resilience.

As stated beautifully by Eckhart Tolle, nature-based practices provide an entry point for clients “to experience the strong and profound presence that is found in the natural world, to help awaken that same presence within themselves.”

My Journey

I entered the field of Clinical Mental Health Counseling after working for two decades in the medical world, where I supported people who were figuring out their ‘new normal’ after life-changing medical events. In 2019, I relocated from Atlanta to Asheville and founded Weller Counseling, where I focus exclusively on supporting individuals and couples seeking transformative healing and growth after seismic life events.

When I’m not working, I can usually be found playing outdoors or curled up with a book on my front porch. I enjoy hiking with my Great Dane and my Chihuahua, kayaking on the French Broad River, and hanging out with my horse at the barn. I love the vibrant food and music scene of Asheville, and it’s one of my greatest joys to introduce people to the eclectic mountain towns of Western North Carolina through curated retreats and Therapy Intensives for individuals and couples.

Transformation doesn’t ask that you stop being you.

It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength that’s already inside of you.

You only have to bloom.
