About the Author

Elizabeth Harville
Elizabeth Harville

I am a speaker, author, and family coach with more than 25 years of experience working with families in the community. I began my career teaching elementary, middle, and high school. During this time, I saw a need for more in-depth interaction between parents and students. As a teacher, this is not always feasible. I transitioned to mental health services as a case manager for a nonprofit agency. It was in this capacity that I fine-tuned my skills in working with families of at-risk youth. As my knowledge and skills grew, my effective process was known within my community. This gave me the opportunity to work in the Department of Juvenile Justice as a Juvenile Court Counselor. There, I worked on a caseload of clients which allowed me to work with the youth and their families for several years. Additionally, I was able to structure a plan for these families with the goal of steering their child to become productive citizens who have goals and dreams of a bright future. I have also spoken in front of several audiences such as schools, churches, and youth groups which allowed me to put resources in the hands of parents needing assistance. I am grateful to be allowed the opportunity to impact the lives of these youth in anyway I can.
