Elizabeth Eaton Bio

Professional Counselor II
 
Howdy! After a recent relocation BCS and being new to all things Aggie, I’m consistently impressed with the spirit and integrity of the people who make up this unique place!  It’s inspiring to be working alongside folks that are engaged in making the world better, and particularly to be collaborating with them on their journey to personal wellness.  In the past, I’ve worked with a wide range of client populations and clinical issues, from early childhood development to end-of-life hospice care.  With college and professional level students, it’s impossible not to be energized by the motivation and engagement they bring to the counseling relationship.  It’s consistently rewarding to guide students to grow in awareness of themselves and others, tap into the internal strengths they already have, and to support their self-care which sustains the remarkable things they are doing every day through their studies, work, and outside interests.  My goal is to create a safe space for students to gain clarity on their values, strengths, and goals.  I feel hopeful when students prioritize their well-being and have the courage to ask for help.  Working through the struggles together, it’s amazing to see how the counseling process can be transformative and empowering for both the client and the clinician!  In my non-work life, I enjoy spending time with my family and our two beloved and very time-consuming rescue dogs!
