Elizabeth “Izzy” Madaelil (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) supervised by Ashley Porter, LCSW-S. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and her Master of Science in Social Work from the University of Texas at Austin in 2023.

Izzy’s first graduate internship was at Westlake High School, where she provided individual and group counseling for students and teachers. During her final graduate internship at Ascension Seton Behavioral Health, Izzy utilized DBT with clients who struggled with suicidal thoughts, impulsive behaviors, and intense emotions. She also has an extensive research background in psychology and gained experience with DBT as a research specialist; she worked on a study examining DBT’s effects on women with borderline personality disorder and their preschool-aged children.

Izzy has worked with adolescents and adults facing a variety of mental health diagnoses – including eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, mood, anxiety, and personality disorders – in both research and clinical settings.

Izzy’s clinical approach is strengths-based, non-judgmental, and collaborative. As a South Asian woman, she is dedicated to making mental healthcare more accessible and approachable for all clients, especially for people of color, LGBTQIA+ individuals, and other folks with intersecting identities. She looks forward to moving with clients toward a life aligned with their values, prioritizing empathy, open communication, authenticity, and humor along the way.

Izzy grew up in New Orleans and lived in the Northeast for nearly 10 years before moving to Austin. In her free time, she likes to bake, watch reality TV, and roller skate (poorly). She also loves dad jokes and has a state/city pun series she will share with anyone who will listen.
