You know there's more to life than the loneliness, frustration, and fatigue you somehow keep coming back to. Despite the many times you've mustered the strength to push through and keep trying, sometimes you feel like true lasting change is hopeless. But something in you keeps calling, drawing you forward in search of the ease, passion, inspiration, and freedom you're longing for.
I believe all human beings move naturally towards self mastery and belonging. Early trauma, developmental hurts, grief and bad luck disturb our wholeness and full potential. We are caught in protective layering of negativity, pain and self defeating behaviors. This state of disconnection with happiness and full embodiment is what brings people into my office. Who am I? I am a deeply empathetic and authentic person. I have a sense of humor. I am inquisitive about my client's journeys. In the rich ground of the therapeutic relationship historical wounding can be reworked and a new sense of self can flourish.
As a fat, queer, neurodivergent disruptor of societal norms and systems, I hold a strength-based attachment focused framework that values and celebrates all genders, sexualities, bodies, ethnicities, cultures, abilities, family structures, religions, and socio-economic locations. I see these intersectionalities as a beautiful tapestry of personal empowerments which can become the foundation from which we work collectively to identify, address and dismantle systems of oppression. I believe humans shouldn’t be pathologized in a society designed to keep people sick and stuck.
Do you feel burned out, exhausted and tired of making decisions? This pandemic has led most of us to this place, and I’m here to help. I provide tools to help with resilience, self-esteem, and managing anxiety. Together, we will create a safe, supportive, and non-judgmental space where you can work together to make the changes you want to see. I work with people ages 13 and older.
My work is active, compassionate, & collaborative. I enjoy working with clients who want to have a deeper understanding to be able to make positive changes. I work with couples & individuals to create a relationship that feels safe. I help my clients gain a deeper understanding, that reveals alternative choices & a path to building more connected & meaningful relationships. I also help my clients build on their strengths as I work with them supportively to attain their relationship & personal growth goals. I primarily work from an attachment theoretical orientation and integrate complimentary interventions to offer a tailored approach to my clients needs.
Do you feel over sensitive or misunderstood, or that patterns keep repeating in your life? Therapy is a unique experience that gets under the patterns to see why and how they got you into a negative space-and then to help get unstuck. Working through your experience of loss can help make sense of the depression or anxiety that are taking too much or your time and energy. That unlocks the natural development of healthy self esteem. Therapy helps you reclaim yourself from the 'unfinished business' of life stresses.

Hi, and welcome. If you are reading this you are in preparation to take a big step to create important change in your life. I commend you.
I specialize in treating chronic and acute PTSD resulting from both single and childhood trauma events; anxiety disorders, loss/bereavement and pain management. I am also a skilled couple therapist.
As a seasoned professional with ample life experience. I hold a doctoral degree from Fielding Graduate University and am dual-licensed as a Clinical Psychologist and as a Marriage and Family Therapist. I am here to help you become your personal best with research driven treatments.
We all face many challenges, stressors, and difficulties within our lives. No matter who we are or where we come from, we all deserve joy, to have the best quality of life and to live authentically. My goal as a therapist is to provide you with a safe and welcoming space that encourages self-reflection and growth. I believe that therapy is about co-creating therapeutic relationships founded on respect, trust, and compassion.
I've been in private practice since 1987, working with individuals and couples. I work with men and women, ages 19 and above, who may be overwhelmed and confused by a life crisis or transition; who may find themselves holding back in their lives, not knowing what they want or afraid to go after it; repeating the same patterns in each of their unsatisfying relationships, leaving them feeling lonely and unseen. I am honored to accompany each client on a journey toward wholeness and peace of mind.
Having traveled extensively, I have a deep appreciation of other cultures and languages.
As my client, you will have my full commitment to listen carefully to your concerns and explore options that are attainable and will bring meaningful experiences to your life. In the immediacy of our hour together, there will be the opportunity to deepen the connection to yourself and to those who are important to you. Our therapeutic work increases self-awareness which in turn enhances your ability to live authentically and relationally. I am trained in EMDR when this modality is needed to diminish traumatic injury.
We all have a story we tell about who we are and we have the capacity to live in a way that is uniquely authentic. Together, we will work to help you understand the impact of your identity, family, relationships, personal trauma, culture, and life changes. I provide support, insight, mindfulness, and emotional management skills when anxiety, depression, or other experiences get in the way of you being able to actualize your fullest self. I look forward to collaborating with you towards connecting with meaning to achieve your goals and find clarity to help you feel less pain and experience more joy.
Through connection, empathy and a non-judgmental approach, I offer ways to help you discover what may be blocking you from finding your true path in life. By not seeing an individual for what symptoms they have or what is affecting them, I am more interested in helping you find what is the cause of symptoms and how to process them. I provide a safe space for anyone who is looking to improve their lives, build better relationships with family, friends or partners and learn to let go of the things that are holding you back from your goals.
Therapy For How We Live Today. I am a licensed therapist that provides video sessions and tele therapy from the comfort of your device. Central to the therapeutic process is the connection between me and my clients. Therefore, I strive to understand the needs, desires and goals of my clients and seek to provide a safe, supportive, encouraging and respectful environment from which to explore, learn and change. I believe it is vital to work collaboratively with my clients to help them achieve a better sense of self which may lead to greater happiness and well-being.
Therapy can be a powerful tool in deepening relationships, moving through pain, understanding the unknown, and tolerating discomfort. My therapeutic work is rooted in an awareness that people have the desire and the resources within to meet their potential. I feel that it's the empathic relationship that I develop with you that generates this kind of self directed change. By meeting you where you are, and helping you to see parts of yourself that may feel inaccessible, we will engage on a journey together that will move you forward in living your life the way that you want to.
I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with over 25 years of experience. I completed my Ph.D. in clinical psychology of adults and children at the University of Virginia, including an internship at the University of Colorado Medical Center, and postdoctoral training at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic, with a focus on family therapy and adolescence. I work with adults and older adolescents on issues including depression, anxiety, loss, and relationship difficulties.
Hello, my name is Bethany and I believe that psychotherapy requires finding the right match. I work with adults, couples, and families with adult children. I utilize treatment modalities that assist with mood, relationship difficulties, loss and grief, parenting challenges, life transitions, codependency, guilt and shame, trauma, addiction, divorce, chronic illness and/or pain, and career stagnation. I've had success with clients who are ready to do the work of self improvement and eager to understand why they may feel stuck. Congratulations on taking the first step toward healing and growth. What are your goals?
Experienced therapist with over 30 years working with individual women, children and families in teaching, research, & clinical settings. My background in Human & Child Development drives my approach working with clients. Specialities include fostering healthy attachment, EMDR, trauma, anxiety, depression, PTSD, and supporting families with special needs and disabilities. My approach focuses on the whole person, taking into account history and strengths. Clients build upon strengths to foster self-esteem, confidence and competency.
I believe that each one of us has a genuine need to feel valued and connected. I also believe that connection is the foundation in our lives. We all need to find our purpose and find a place where we can belong to something bigger than ourselves. Sometimes our inability to connect with others can leave us feeling empty, hopeless or insecure. It can cause us to isolate, tolerate unhealthy relationships, abuse substances or lose our direction. When we learn to build healthy connections and find our purpose, we are more likely to experience hope and fulfillment. I am a licensed clinical social worker with 30+ years of experience.
Regardless of where you are in your journey, participating in therapy can be beneficial in moving toward alleviating distress, or maximizing what is important to you. I am a licensed clinical social worker with over 26 years of experience working in integrated health care settings, and have seen the myriad ways mental and physical health can affect people at various life stages. My approach is collaborative and integrative, with focus on the therapeutic relationship, because therapy is most effective when you are comfortable and feel valued.
