Liz is currently working at the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE), an integrative treatment program for service members with traumatic brain injury and psychological distress at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. At the NICoE she is providing Dance/Movement Therapy (DMT) treatment to active duty service members, focusing on enhancement of mind-body skills to increase nervous system regulation and emotional well-being.
