Meet St. Gregory’s Counselor

staff-elizabethElizabeth Pankey-Warren

It is a privilege to be a part of the Saint Gregory’s community and to participate in worship leadership as a fellow clergy person. I have a Masters of Divinity from Vanderbilt Divinity School, and spent 10 years working full time as an ordained Pastor in Presbyterian Church (USA) churches in Tennessee and Florida. After losing our first child at birth, I felt called to Counseling, and went back to get a Masters of Clinical Social Work from Barry University. I worked as a Hospice Social Worker, spent almost six years as a therapist with the Community Christian Counseling Center and now am working as a pastoral counselor offering spiritually sensitive counseling here at Saint Gregory’s, and one day a week at Boca Behavioral Health.  My spiritual path also led me to become a registered Yoga teacher, a Reiki practitioner, and a Nutrition Educator. I weave all of these healing modalities into my counseling work with clients and create a safe space to look within so that clients can process, let go, heal and grow towards a higher level of consciousness.   I am passionate about helping people create healthy connection in loving relationships. I specialize in assisting clients resolve anxiety, depression, grief and overcome shame. I offer Spiritual Direction and journey with clergy and lay people to help them step into a deeper, more spacious inner space, connected to God and living as their Truest selves.
