About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (0137511) in the State of New Mexico and a National Certified Counselor (759654) certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors. I specialize in the field of eating disorders with additional interest in treating depressive disorders and anxiety-related illnesses. In 2006, I began working as a school counselor. In 2009, I moved into the field of eating disorders and mental health in private practice. All in all, I have more than 12 years experience, with many ages, many people, many diagnoses.

My philosophy is to help people of all ages find balance in their lives, believing that once balance is restored, health follows. Using an eclectic approach, I incorporate cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy and body acceptance work into my practice. Considering psychotherapy to be much more than just a job, I am passionate about helping people work towards recovery and a healthy life. But, I also recognize that it can be scary to begin a new therapeutic relationship, so we will work together slowly to build trust as we work on your goals.

I look forward to working with you. One day at a time, one message at a time, together.

It's been a fantastic experience so far. Beth has been really supportive and insightful about what is going on with me. I'm so glad that I tried this service and I probably should have done it sooner.

Beth is the best experience I've ever had in my history of counsellors. Ive had a lot of negative experiences, but i need someone to help me, in a way that i would respond to, and Beth is that person! She's very attentive and responsive, and i'm very grateful for her and this program. My life has improved since i signed up for Better Help. I'm not a robot either! Real person review :)

She has been very helpful brings great insight to me. I have difficulty with trust and tend to test people even counsellors! She has been very professional and it has been appreciated. She has also been patience with me. It hasn't been a long time but has already been helping me which I very much appreciate. I also know I'm not always a good patient but she been kind. I'd really like to thank her.

Beth has a insightful & practical approach to the issues I wish to work through and always responds in a caring, respectful manner that allows me to feel safe to open up & trust her coaching. I love the process of contacting each other with one/few thoughts to consider each time as I don't think my mind could have handle so much information at a time. It gives me enough time to reflect and internalise the new things I'm learning. Counselling experience with Beth has been more than I imagined and I'm really thankful for the steady progress I'm making as a result of her support along the way. Thanks Beth!

I have only been working with Beth for a short period of time but am already feeling like there's hope for improvement. She's kind, understanding and validates my concerns. I would highly recommend her.
