Elizabeth Lawrence

Director of Counseling

Liz grew up in New Braunfels, Texas and Cumberland, Rhode Island, attending Texas State University in San Marcos and Kent University in England. Liz joined our staff in 2003. One of her priorities as a Licensed Professional Counselor is the on-going healthful discipleship of God's church focusing on individual and family counseling, group support and leadership development. Liz enjoys great conversation over tea, dancing at the Fed or the Spoke, painting in her studio, cheering on the Red Sox or having some hilarious adventure with family and friends.
