Hi there, I'm Elizabeth!

I'm Elizabeth Anaya-Olmedo, a licensed clinical social worker with more than 9 years of experience. I have a bachelor's degree in Human Services, a bachelor's degree in Sociology with a concentration in Social Work and Gerontology, and a master's degree in Social Work from Indiana University. My goal is to touch, move, and inspire all those I come in contact with.

My approach

I am passionate about empowering people in all aspects of life. I help people embrace their authentic selves, develop compassion toward themselves and others, and live meaningful life through transformation and healing. My therapeutic paradigms include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Existential Therapy.

My focus

I have extensive experience working with individuals from all walks of life suffering from anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, low self-esteem, sexual abuse, intimate partner violence, life transitions, loss, and grief, living with a chronic illness, and problems related to parenting. I am willing to see individuals and couples.

My communication style

I communicate with compassion, honesty, and respect. My style is collaborative and focused on understanding your unique needs. I listen intently and ask thoughtful questions to help guide our discussions. My aim is to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you feel heard and supported on your journey of healing and growth.

My journey to mental healthcare

I began my clinical hours in August 2017 at West Anaheim Medical Center under the supervision of Paul Bracho, LCSW. I completed my hours in September 2019. My journey into mental healthcare stems from my passion for empowering people and helping them live meaningful lives.

My goals for you

My goal for you is to help you embrace your authentic self, develop self-compassion and compassion for others, and live a meaningful life through transformation and healing. I aim to touch, move, and inspire you through our work together.

My first session with you

In our first session, we will discuss what brings you to therapy and what your goals are. I will explain my therapeutic approach and how I believe I can help you. We will also review important policies and procedures. Most importantly, I want you to feel comfortable and safe, so please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
