Eliza Weitbrecht, PhD


About Me

Dr. Eliza Weitbrecht is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist at our Colorado Springs location.

Dr. Weitbrecht utilizes a client-centered, evidence-based therapeutic approach, with an
emphasis on tailoring interventions aligned with one’s individual needs and values. She is
thoughtful about learning and understanding her clients’ unique backgrounds and experiences,
and the larger world within which they live. She is dedicated to creating an open, collaborative,
and non-judgmental therapeutic space to help each person grow and reach their personal goals. Dr. Weitbrecht especially enjoys working with Veterans, couples, and young adults.

Originally from Indiana, and new to the Springs, she enjoys traveling near and far, exploring
new places, going on outdoor adventures, and spending time with friends, family, and her
rescue pup Riley. She loves playing board games and card games, especially “euchre,” a
Midwest tradition! At the end of a long day, she enjoys relaxing with a cup of tea and a good
mystery novel.
