Beth is not taking new clients at this time. I believe we all have the capacity to achieve loving, fulfilling relationships, but sometimes we get in our own way.

I specialize in Relationship Issues, am a Certified Imago Relationship Specialist and EMDR Certified Therapist, and can help gently guide clients through their traumatic pasts.

I’ve run therapy groups for adolescent males in residential treatment centers, groups for male sex offenders, and groups for individuals struggling with substance use.
For me, effective therapy all comes down to one idea: You must feel valued, nurtured, and supported to grow into your authentic self. You, after all, are the expert of your own life. In session, I provide a space for us to explore your struggles and support you in discovering new ways of handling them. I approach this work through Cognitive Behavioral and Solution-focused Brief Therapy frameworks.

Counseling is a trusting relationship where someone is actively seeking help from a professional who is willing to help. My goal is to explore my client's needs for therapy. From there, I will try to find out what they might expect from therapy such as developing the mental/emotional strength necessary to relate well with others, making decisions about relationship or career issues, reducing anxiety, improving self-esteem, or decreasing depressive symptoms that make their day difficult. I will be honest and understanding. It is my hope that each and everyone finds happiness, peace, and hope.

As a youth and family pastor for the last 17 years, I have been so blessed to stand with teens and families through both joyful and difficult times and have seen first hand how difficult it is to be or raise a teenager in today’s world. The desire to help teens, young adults, and parents navigate these tough times, and the earnest belief that hope can be found in even the darkest of times is what led me to counseling. Whether you have a desire for personal insight, a more peaceful home life, or a stronger relationship, I would love to sit with you to see if we can figure out a path forward.

When working with teens, I focus not on "fixing" the adolescent , but on establishing new patterns of familial relating.
Changing anything in life can feel like a struggle and seeking help is an important part of the process. During my time as counselor, I have had the privilege to collaborate with adolescents, couples and families as they courageously embark on the pathway to change. I value working with my clients to gain awareness of the patterns in life and finding ways of adjusting them to meet current needs. Whether you are feeling stuck or completely lost, counseling can be a great tool for change. I look forward to working with you.

There are those days when just getting out of bed is difficult. Having someone help manage struggles and figuring life out is important. The twist and turns of life can leave one feeling drained, exhausted, and in a mental fog, or a loss of wanting to or even knowing how to move forward. This is where I come in, helping those who are stuck, lost, hopeless and who cannot figure out what’s going on inside, feeling there is no way out, or even making unhelpful choices in life. Possibly a teenager or young adult scared about life or the future and managing stress. This is why I am here.

I specialize in individual & couple therapy, family therapy, adolescent counseling, divorce parenting issues, step-family issues and general communication/relationship issues.
I feel that I am gifted in helping all individuals, especially those with past issues that are still having effects on one's life. I especially enjoy helping with communication which is a specialty of mine. When communication fails, relationships fail. I can help you with your relationships, both with your children and with your significant others. I have been helping parents for 13 years and know that I can help you with your goals of parenting, relationships, work issues, and life transitions. Help in these areas will alleviate depression and anxiety. Divorcing? I will help your family. Give me a call.

I work with people who are battling eating disorders, fighting feelings of depression and anxiety, and struggling with self-compassion. In our sessions, we will work on understanding who you are and what matters to you, apart from your eating disorder. We will tackle thought patterns that aren't helping you and work on forming new ways of interacting with your thoughts and feelings that will serve you more. I have found that the clients I am most "in my element" with are teens and young adults. When working with teens, I also work with parents to help them navigate supporting their teen at home when eating is difficult.

Being a teenager can be challenging, especially during a pandemic. Being isolated from friends, spending more time at home and going back to school are just a few stressors. I have learned through my own personal experiences, what it looks like to listen to a persons issues, needs and goals. I have experience both in my professional career as well as through my own mental health journey what it means to be a person who actively listens. I understand there are times when insight is needed but there is also value in having someone simply listen.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Austin and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
