Admin Team

Elizabeth Burke


Admin Team: President & Founder

She | Her | Hers

People have always been able to confide in me without judgement. When I was growing up, my parents, siblings and friends said they always took solace in spending time with me and sharing their intimate thoughts and feelings. They found that being able to talk with me—openly and freely without judgment—was both empowering and a great source of relief. As I grew older, it became clear that I profoundly enjoyed relating to people from all different backgrounds and beliefs.

As a business owner and full time Chicago therapist, I understand the many stressors of balancing work and home life with taking care of yourself and those you love. I also understand the importance of creating a healthy life-work balance. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my spouse, friends and family, exercising, cooking and reading. No matter what I’m doing, I truly enjoy getting to know people on a deeper level.

Linda Manelli-Bauer


Admin Team: Lead Intake Coordinator

She | Her | Hers

Re-entering the workforce after a long break in raising my family, brought me to Empowered Therapy.  In my role as Intake Coordinator I have helped with the growth of our practice  over the last 5 years. I  assist new clients to connect with a therapist on our team, which is a favorite part of my work as well as support our clinicians and our Admin Team.

 Outside of Empowered you might find me spending time with my grown children. I enjoy cooking, gardening, sewing  or finding new places for music, food and fun in and around Chicago.    My love of hiking and kayaking, biking and camping keep me grounded and connected with nature.
