ABOUT DR. ELIZABETH VITALE
I took a roundabout route to becoming a psychologist. Having majored in psychology in college, I took some time off to explore possibilities, and became enamored with midwifery. I trained as a Certified Nurse Midwife, and practiced in that field for several years. In that work, I was struck by how much the mind and body work together in pregnancy, childbirth and health and well-being in general. I found myself doing a good deal of counseling in my midwifery practice, especially around childbearing losses. It seemed to come naturally for me to provide that support, and I began contemplating further training in Psychology, which I was fortunate to be able to pursue.
