Elizabeth is a licensed psychotherapist, consultant, and trainer with specializations in Utilization Review and Quality Assurance, and has a private practice north of Los Angeles, CA. Elizabeth works closely with clinical teams across the United States to improve their quality of care and documentation practices, with the aim of both boosting revenue and providing better client care by way of enhanced Utilization Review outcomes and liability reduction. She works with behavioral health companies on program development and administrative process improvement in order to better satisfy requirements with accrediting agencies like The Joint Commission and managed carebased treatment programs. Her highlevel clinical work comes from her passion to improve the quality of care for mental health patients, and she feels strongly that streamlining administrative processes can lead to an improvement in the patient’s treatment experience and the resulting outcome.
