Elizabeth Matthews, MA, LPC

Elizabeth Matthews recently closed her counseling practice in Colorado to explore life in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico with her husband David. She continues to work with individuals and groups interested in deepening their relationship to self and others.

Professional Counseling

Many adults, at some point, seek to find meaning, creativity and direction in their lives.  Existential questions, once the domain of religion, are challenging a growing number of individuals.  Elizabeth offers support to individuals and groups seeking to understand the meaning and rewards of life's challenges.     


Elizabeth was thrilled to discover SoulCollage as a way to honor and recognize the unique nature of every individual who seeks it's magic.  SoulCollage utilizes images found in magazines, books, cards and photos to express the multi-faceted dimension of our psyche.  This fun and rewarding process can be used to for self expression and personal awareness.
