About Us

  • In the beginning, I am your hope holder. I will hold hope until you are ready and able to hold hope for yourselves.


Welcome to Odonata Wellness Center, LLC

As a Licensed Professional Counselor and founder of Odonata Wellness Center, LLC., I want you to know that this center is a tapestry interwoven from the finest threads of passionknowledge, and creativity.

This vision began nearly 25-years ago as I began a journey to create a healing environment infused with complementary healing modalities to support Post Traumatic Trauma survivors and individuals who experience Complex Post Traumatic Stress Symptoms. There were moments on the road I traveled personally and professionally that sculpted what is now Odonata Wellness Center, LLC.   

Passion:

Helping people heal is what motivates me to get up each day and plant my feet on the ground. I consider it an honor to be invited into my client’s lives at some of their darkest hours and support them with solid tools that strengthenheal, and help them grow beyond what they thought was possible

Traveling the road of life, I learned first-hand that there was a need for a wellness center with a sole focus on supporting betrayed partners and their loved ones who struggled with sexual or pornography addiction. I wanted to offer the kind of support that went beyond traditional talk therapy, as well as help my clients see the amazing talents and strengths they possess. I believe each person has personal strengths. Perhaps due to addiction or years of pain, those parts are a bit more hidden, but they are not lost.     

  • Helping my clients pull out their strengths, along with new supportive tools, boundaries, and goals become the alchemy to create a healthy lifestyle and foundation for one’s loving relationship and life.

Knowledge:

Seeking support from an experienced and trained professional specializing in the field of sexual addiction and betrayal trauma is essential. Having lived through this myself, I can say firsthand that going to someone trained in this work was the key ingredient to the success in my healing. That experience allows me to hold the torch of hope for others on their healing journey.

Throughout my education and training, I have had the good fortune to work with some of the top doctors and clinical professionals in the following fields of study; 

  • Mount Mary University Master’s in Art Therapy program
  • The International Institute of Trauma and Addiction Professionals
  • The Association of Partners of Sex Addicts Trauma Specialists
  • Brainspotting
  • Mindfulness Based Addiction and Trauma Therapy
  • The Gottman Institute – Support for couples based upon nearly 50-years of research
  • I also had the privilege to train under a leading Neuropsychologist and a leading Post Traumatic Stress expert here in the Midwest.

Creativity:

When people read or hear, “Art Therapist” it may conjure a memory of the last time you created art. The fact is I do a lot of talk therapy as it is essential to learn about your story, needs, and goals. In the simplest of terms, art therapy is the marriage of art and psychology. 

  • Throughout the years, my clients have shared with me how they have flourished because of talk therapy combined with art therapy and Brainspotting. This brings joy to my heart.

Some clients like to engage in art therapy and some not. Art therapy is only one facet of the kaleidoscope of the tools I offer in my creative toolbox. Here is a brief list of some of the therapy tools my clients and I find most helpful in and out of sessions.

On a Personal Note…

First, I want to acknowledge the courage it takes to reach out for help and make that first phone call or send an email. If it happens to be an evening or weekend and I am away from my desk, I will follow up with you when I am back in my home office or the studio.

In the meantime, I am probably cooking meals from scratch for my family, gardening, or working on a home improvement project with my husband. I also love nature; hiking, biking, and taking walks with my family are my most cherished moments in life. 

What keeps me grounded and healthy in supporting individuals and couples through sexual addiction and betrayal trauma recovery is making time for my own self-care. One of my favorite past times is to deconstruct old furniture and repurpose it into a new life. Thank you for stopping by, I hope that I can be of support.

Your primary therapist, primary therapist, Elizabeth Poth, LPC, ATR, CSAT, CCPS, BSP-1 had once owned a commercial cleaning. She was trained in the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA) cleaning protocols.

This was due to stringent cleaning requirements for the medical clinics, dental offices, as well as an IV and Sterile Compounding Clean Room her company provided cleaning services too. The IV room is a place in pharmacies and hospitals where IV medical bags are prepared for hospital use. Safety is our number one priority. Therefore, Elizabeth brings that OSHA standard to Odonata Wellness Center, LLC.
