Dr. Elizabeth Pearce, PsyD

Dr. Elizabeth Pearce, PsyD is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and the owner and Clinical Director of Grace Behavioral Health. She specializes in mood and anxiety disorders, especially for women in the childbearing years (pregnancy and fertility issues, postpartum mental health, birth trauma), as well as relationship issues and general trauma.

“Deep down, you are resilient, and in your struggles there waits an opportunity to grow stronger and wiser. Believing this, I offer counseling for a wide variety of issues including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, postpartum issues, relationship problems, and more. When you feel overwhelmed, I offer a safe, compassionate place to explore your feelings and experiences, and will collaborate with you to build the skills to move forward in your life and relationships.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I love working with individuals and couples to discover how past experiences might be preventing you from functioning optimally in the present. For those who desire Christian therapy, I offer counseling that integrates spiritual issues and works within your understanding of faith and Scripture.

Whatever your specific challenges are, I feel confident that together we can get to the heart of the problem and empower you to create meaningful change in your life. I want you to feel supported and to know you are capable of reaching your goals, in life and in your relationships.”
