Elizabeth Uslander is a loving counselor who works closely with her clients to heal the wounds of a lifetime as they navigate life’s major transitions. She founded Voyages to provide transformational support not traditionally available in the medical model. Her unique therapeutic and educational modality integrates Eastern & Western, modern & ancient, traditional & alternative, clinical & spiritual principles and practices to bring nourishing alignment to each individual’s physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual experience.
Elizabeth earned her Bachelor of Arts, cum laude with honors, in ethics and social justice from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. She then completed her Master of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary, also in Washington, DC., before graduating cum laude with honors from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles with her Master of Social Work. Following her ordination in the ecumenical Universal Life Church in 2007, Elizabeth has served as a Spiritual Counselor and Medical Social Worker in the fields of spiritual transformation, grief and end of life care, mental health and addiction recovery, healing family trauma and social justice advocacy.
Elizabeth’s greatest passion is to help those in crisis see the light of possibility, empower them to become who they were born to be, and support them in living with the peace, joy and love we all deserve. To that end, she created a unique approach that facilitates transformation in six simple steps: Awaken to your experience, Embrace your vulnerability and power, Envision your ideal, Release the limitations to manifesting it, Nourish the possibilities that support it, and Surrender to the process of becoming your authentic self. The journey weaves together elements of wisdom traditions and evidence-based models to support clients in creating their optimal experience of life on life’s terms.
Elizabeth also works in partnership with her husband, Dr. Bob Uslander in their medical practice, Integrated MD Care, where they’ve co-created the “Medicine for the Body and the Soul” model of care. They are co-founders of Empowered Endings™, established to teach their proven model, build community and further the social paradigm shift in End of Life Care. Their shared passion for meaningful service inspired Dr. Bob and Rev. Liz Uslander to establish their 501-C3 non-profit, the Aid in Dying Foundation, offering charitable support to those in need.
