Elizabeth Ritter, MS, LPCC



My name is Liz Ritter (she/her/hers) and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor. I received my Master’s in Counseling from Minnesota State University, Mankato.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile and deciding what is best for you! One of the most important parts of therapy is finding a good fit. Sometimes, thinking of a therapist is like thinking of your favorite shoes, you might have to try a few on before you find your favorite. I work with clients on all different walks of life and stages of their personal journey.

I hope we are the perfect, “fit!”

How I Work

In my work, I believe in meeting the clients where they are at in their journey. I am someone who will be present while you share difficult situations and emotions while following your lead. I enjoy organic conversation, meaningful connection, and making the time together feel helpful and relevant. I am an active listener and will give you as much space as you need to process, gain perspective, and talk through situations.

What Sets Me Apart As a Therapist?

Throughout life I have been told I have a great energy and contagious laugh. I have a strong passion for getting to know people and who they are when showing their most authentic self. I believe in creating a relaxed environment where there is a balance of sharing joy and sitting in hard times together.
