Elizabeth Haberer, LCSW

Psychotherapy is known to be helpful during times of transition, struggle or loss. For some, it can be especially useful when the tides are calmer, when wanting to remove self-deceptions in order to show up more authentically in our lives, or to change patterns that no longer serve us.

My clinical work is anchored in attachment theory, which focuses on how we relate to ourselves and to others. I place utmost importance on the quality of the relationship that we build together. My approach is integrative and tailored to each person's needs and personality. 

I am experienced in integrating the mind and body, and walking alongside people who feel overcome by difficult emotions and life circumstances.

My commitment is to help people inhabit their bodies and lives in a meaningful manner.




For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks… the work for which all other work is but preparation.
— Rainer Maria Rilke


About Me

I completed my graduate studies in 2000 and received my advanced licensure with recognition as clinical supervisor in 2004. I have held senior clinical positions in various inpatient and outpatient mental health settings such as the Children's Assessment Center, the Council on Recovery, and the University of Pittsburgh's Intensive Outpatient OCD program.  

Most recently, I worked at the Menninger Clinic in Houston, Texas in the Compass program, specializing in work with young adults.

My areas of expertise include trauma, personality disorders and anxiety. I am grounded in the psychodynamic framework, which explores how thoughts and feelings outside our conscious awareness impact our lives.  

I am adept with individuals and families of all ages and in all stages of change and phase of life. 




I have extensive training in evidence-based interventions, such as ACT, DBT and other mindfulness based interventions such as self-compassion. I have extensive training and certifications in Child Play Therapy and Exposure Therapy for Obsessive-Compulsive-Disorder. 

I have completed two years of post-graduate training in psychodynamic psychotherapy at the Pittsburgh Psychoanalytic Institute, and continue to train intensively and formally in psychoanalysis in Houston.

I hold accreditation as a Certified Group Psychotherapist and serve on the board of the Houston Group Psychotherapy Society. Contributing to the training of future clinicians as a clinical supervisor is another facet of my practice. I have also served as adjunct faculty at the graduate school of social work at the University of Houston. 

I am a certified yoga instructor and founded THRIVE, a Trauma-Informed yoga program. I am able to integrate yoga into psychotherapy sessions, if that is desired.
