Specializes in Play Therapy and Couples Therapy

2016, Master of Arts, Marriage & Family Therapy, Argosy University, Salt Lake City

Elizabeth Harrell is a marriage and family therapist for Bristol Health. She specializes in play therapy and couples therapy. “I try to involve the whole family as often as possible,” she says.

Elizabeth admits that working toward an advanced degree was difficult, especially balancing her time commitments. “Dealing with very high stress levels with work, family, school, and health problems [were challenges I faced while working toward my degree].” But she recommends that current students keep on working through the difficult times to achieve their career goals.

Prior to attending Argosy University, Salt Lake City, Elizabeth earned a Bachelor’s degree in marriage therapy and human development from Brigham Young University. She says that she always wanted to earn a higher degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and is excited to have made that goal a reality. Elizabeth adds that she chose to attend Argosy University because of its flexible schedule that allowed her to keep working while attending school.

Elizabeth, who in 2016 earned a Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy from Argosy University, Salt Lake City, says that her education provided a strong foundation for her job. “It has made me more confident and capable to have a career.” She adds that her instructors were supportive and brought their real-world knowledge into the classroom. “I learned so much from each instructor. They all were willing to go the extra mile to teach and prepare us to be effective therapists.”
