Together, we can work to help you let go of those things which no longer serve you, deconstruct negative, false stories and self-beliefs and begin again by identifying and reshaping your goals so that you can author your own success story. In experiencing #alonetogether I can assist you with adding more joy in your life and becoming your best self.

My motto: “Never let the shadow of a past failure block the sunlight of success.”

She earned her PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of North Texas in 2006. She completed her APA-Accredited Internship at the University of Pennsylvania’s Counseling & Psychological Services followed by a post-doctoral fellowship in student counseling and assessment at the University of Southern California. She has spent 10+ years in university counseling centers, most recently at SMU where she was a Senior Staff Psychologist. Prior to being at SMU, Jennifer lived in New York City and served as a Staff Psychologist and the Training Director at William Paterson University in New Jersey. Within college counseling, she enjoyed the focus on eating disorder treatment, college mental health, and supervision and training of future professionals in psychology, but she practiced with a more generalist approach providing treatment for the full spectrum of psychological difficulties. She is also an adjunct instructor at Seton Hall University in their online Master’s Degree program in Mental Health Counseling and School Counseling.

Jennifer has been in private practice since 2012. Her clinical areas of interest include anxiety disorders, women’s issues, infertility concerns, eating concerns and mindful eating, and relational issues.

She works with clients to explore the relationships they have with others, within their environments, and with themselves to understand where those relationships work effectively and where those patterns need adjustments or shifts in perspective. Jennifer also believes the therapy relationship is very important and works to provide a safe, compassionate space in which clients feel comfortable collaborating in their treatment. Her approach to therapy is primarily psychodynamic with an emphasis on attachment theory and developmental theory. She also integrates mindfulness and self-compassion into her work.

Elizabeth Huber, PhD

Licensed Psychologist / Co-Founder

Dr. Huber is a Licensed Psychologist in private practice in Dallas. She completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at UT Southwestern Medical Center in 2016. She completed her APA-Accredited Pre-Doctoral Internship at both the Eating Disorder Services Unit of Children’s Hospital of Dallas, and Counseling Services at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. Prior to this, Liz completed a BA with honors in Plan II and Spanish at the University of Texas in Austin (2001) and a Masters of Psychology at the University of Dallas (2012).

Liz pursued a career in finance in both New York City and Dallas before realizing her calling in the field of psychology. Her experience in the corporate world informs her work as a therapist, particularly in partnering with patients to help them achieve balance between their personal lives and professional aspirations. She believes that fulfillment can often be found at the intersection of passion and aptitude, and she strives to help her patients uncover and nurture their intrinsic talents to discover joy and purpose in their personal and professional lives.

Dr. Huber’s training and areas of clinical interest pertain to women’s health and include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, antepartum and postpartum psychopathology, fertility-related concerns and difficulties in relationships. Her approach to therapy is primarily psychodynamic in nature. In psychodynamic psychotherapy, a client partners with the therapist to explore those aspects of the self that are not fully known and to develop insight into past experiences and relationships. Dr. Huber incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness to help clients learn to tolerate painful thoughts and feelings, and to view them from a more compassionate and non-judgmental stance. She believes that suffering can provide an opening into a deeper understanding of one’s internal world and the unconscious patterns that have led us to our current uncomfortable dynamics, relational patterns or symptoms. While symptom reduction is both a goal and often a byproduct of psychodynamic psychotherapy, Dr. Huber’s work with patients prioritizes increased self-awareness, satisfaction in relationships, integrated sense of self and recognition of intrinsic gifts and strengths. Dr. Huber’s goal is to graduate patients from therapy with the confidence and self-reliance that will enable them to lead richer, more joy-filled lives.
