Elizabeth Kromhout, MFT

Elizabeth Kromhout is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Early in her high school years, she discovered an aversion toward traditional cliques. This inspired her to take on the challenge of beginning college two years early. At the age of 22, Elizabeth graduated from Pepperdine University with her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Being so young when she started her practice, she quickly realized her ability to relate, understand and comprehend the struggles many of her teenage clients where experiencing. Elizabeth found such enjoyment counseling adolescents and their parents that it became her specialty.  Elizabeth has been running a private practice in Santa Monica since 2012 and moved to the Dallas area in 2021. Her favorite clients to work with are families facing extraordinary challenges, and she takes a special interest in kids who were adopted at birth and face difficulties during their teenage years.

The goal in life isn’t just to be happy. It’s to feel the entire span of human emotions and be okay with it. By gaining this strength, one can stop reacting to the external environment and sit with emotions as they come and go while remaining centered and becoming one’s authentic self.

Elizabeth believes the therapeutic process should be interactive and is aggressive, while empathic, in her attempts to help people search for their truth. She’s most interested in human connection. What makes you you? What do you think about? What hurts?
