I have had a wonderful experience with Liz within the first few sessions. She immediately was attentive to our needs as a couple and put together activities and plans for us to start implementing right away. I am looking forward to continuing the process with her! You will not be disappointed if you are looking for a different approach to therapy.

1st session!... and we have already made SO much progress. We made the appointment with little to no hope and left Dr. Mahaney’s office with a renewed sense of the potential to create an intentional and better relationship. We both feel focused with clear goals and a plan to move forward TOGETHER! Thanks Liz, you are a marriage saver:)

Dr. Mahaney helped my fiance and I with premarital counseling. We have so much more insight then ever before. We are aware that we are creating a culture in our relationship and now we are creating it intentionally and we are aware that we are creating it. This way, we will be able to create the relationship with our eyes wide open! Sounds simple but we both had an AHA moment with Liz. She is so easy to talk to and we recommend her to anyone!!! She isn’t a traditional type therapist. She does things quite differently. She uses a strength based and solution focus approach. We can track our progress and see when we may fall back into bad habits with an app that we use. (Incredibly life changing!) THANKS LIZ
— -G.K. Thanks again:)
Highly recommended! I could not have asked for a more pleasant experience, she really seemed like she was there for my well-being. I have had a really negative experience with therapy before, but Liz really changed my opinion! 😁

I greatly appreciate Elizabeth’s guidance and expertise! Her work ethic and clinical knowledge are profound. I can’t wait until the yurt is here- many fun collaborations on the way!

Practical, empathetic, engaging and insightful. At first I was somewhat confused by (and a little skeptical of, frankly) her methods—she uses something called a Trello board (and yes theres an app for that) as a means of delivering content and providing a “template” to follow and collaborate, online. But by golly it really works, if you just go with it and put in the necessary work. We went from confused and hopeless, to energized and empowered within a short period. We liked that her methodology seems to be highly influenced by Dr. John Gottman. For us, she provided (or more like facilitated) very constructive couples therapy—we found the homework and structure to be way more effective than the typical talk therapy we had tried (to no avail) prior to that. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 would be, if youre lazy shes not for you—working with Liz, what you get out of it is commensurate with the effort that you put into it. But we give her 5 stars because she was a good fit for us.

Dr. Elizabeth Mahaney was recommended by friends of ours who were headed toward divorce. She helped them overcome their difficulties and helped save both of our relationships! The program that she develops and individualizes for each couple was easy to learn, apply and track progress. Dr. Liz helped us learned how to communicate effectively and she gently held each of us accountable for how we were “actually” showing up in our relationship. “AHA” Moments GaLoRe!! Thank you SO much Dr. Mahaney... We thank our lucky stars that we found you <3

I highly recommend Elizabeth Mahaney. She is everything that a good therapist should be... she’s patient, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. She is someone who makes you feel comfortable from the start and being in her office is like sitting in the comfort of your own home. I have to say Elizabeth Mahaney has helped me immensely as I have journeyed through some tough challenges. Thank you Liz! You are the best!

Dr. Mahaney is a caring, calming therapist who holds the dignity and healing of her clients as paramount. I’ve had the pleasure of working with her and can attest to the fact that she’s incredibly insightful, has great therapist instincts, and is quite literally a natural at what she does. It’s rare that a person can truly find their calling; Dr. Mahaney certainly has.

Liz is absolutely amazing! I was initially looking for a couples therapist in-network, but when I came across Liz’s page, I just had to go to her. I initially went for couple’s therapy, but now I also go for individual therapy. I feel safe living in Tampa knowing I have Liz as a great resource.
