Psychotherapy, Coaching & Consultation | Columbia, MO

A safe place to learn, heal and grow. Here you can be your authentic self and share your concerns.

Reaching out for help is hard. My mission is to make it easy. You deserve to be healthy and happy.  You’ve likely been considering seeking help for a long time. You may not realize you've already taken your first step towards healing. You are not alone. I'm here with you, ready to stand beside you and face any challenge in your path. 

Elizabeth Hocker Counseling is a Boutique Private Practice, providing quality Counseling and Psychotherapy, as well as Coaching and Consultation Services in Columbia, Missouri. My practice values diversity, is LGBTQ friendly and partners with people from all walks of life.

I help people with various concerns including mental health issues, substance use and addiction, relationship issues, and personal growth and development. I'm passionate about helping you recognize your worth, strengthen your relationships, and heal from painful life experiences. Whether your struggling with self-esteem, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, substance use and addiction, or trauma, I can help you. 

The road may appear long, lonely, and never-ending at times. The winding path of life twists and turn every which way, leaving you running in circles or even lost altogether. Your sessions here afford you a safe, comfortable atmosphere for you to share your pain, gain insight, explore new ways to cope, and find relief. 

There is hope. You can create a meaningful life full of love, laughter, and joy!

I invite you to share your story with me. I utilize proven research and evidence-based practices, coupled with a holistic person-centered approach to treatment. Together, we create a treatment plan tailored to your unique needs. You will receive ongoing support, encouragement, and acceptance. I arm you with knowledge, tools, techniques, and resources. Along the way, I gently challenge you to see new perspectives and take steps, to get unstuck.

I believe the therapeutic relationship truly empowers and motivates as you to create the change you wish to see. A trusting, honest relationship only happens when we are both free to be our true authentic selves, free from judgment. Therefore, I allow my personality to shine through, remaining real and down-to-earth. I love empowering my clients to move from merely existing or surviving to thriving!  

We may only be a small part of each other’s journey, but the experiences at Elizabeth Hocker Counseling will last you a lifetime.

Your journey towards healing and growth can begin now.

"Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up." - Brene Brown

Being vulnerable does not come naturally to many of us. We learn to build thick walls and hide behind masks of polite responses. Somewhere along the way, you may have internalized the message asking for help is a weakness. I'm here to tell you its the exact opposite. 

Asking for help and reaching out for support takes courage and strength beyond measure. Life is full of challenges, but you do not have to face them alone.  Let me walk beside YOU.
