Hi, I'm Elizabeth

As a musician I've performed at venues and for charities all over the northeast, and recorded the album The Weight of Mortal Skin, which you can hear on radio stations around the world. I’ve also produced numerous benefit concerts and charity events as well as public radio programs in support of social and environmental causes.
I am also a long-time battler of depression and anxiety.
My mission–both personal and professional–is to eradicate the shame and stigma around mental illness, while inspiring sufferers to action with relevant, real-world tools and techniques. Oh, and to have a few laughs along the way! Here you can learn more about me and my work, including my acclaimed ThinkBuildLive Success series, which has been used by thousands of students and educators around the country.

While making my film Wrestling Ghosts, I had the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of trauma and the negative impact it can have on every aspect of a person’s life. I’ve also seen the potential for healing, and I believe Mindfulness for a Messy Life offers one of the most comprehensive approaches to healing I’ve seen. These are the kind of tools that will change lives.
