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 Christian Counseling, family issues, eating disorders/issues, depression and anxiety-related issues.

I was always in church as a young girl, but struggled with what I heard there. I came to Christ as an adult and was freed from years of addiction and eating issues. By the grace of my Lord Jesus Christ, I am grateful that I am a new creation. I met and married my husband, and we have 3 beautiful children - 2 are our biological children, and one is our "shared son" (our foster son). Like all homes, we have good days and bad days. But, I am reminded of the verse, Romans 5:3-5, which reminds me that when I persevere through trials, it builds character, and character brings HOPE, and HOPE NEVER DISSAPPOINTS! It is this hope that propelled me to start my journey. In 2006, I began working as a school counselor at a small private Christian school after being a school teacher. In 2009, I moved into the field of eating disorders/mental health in private practice. All in all, I have more than 13 years of counseling experience.

My philosophy is Christian Counseling and use the Bible to address issues of emotional distress by helping you discover what the Bible has to say about the issue you are having right now and how it is applicable to today's issues (2 Peter 1:3). I will pray with you, lead you to Scripture, be quick to hear you, and will speak the truth in love to you. This is what I believe helps Christian Counseling be effective.

I specialize in Christian counseling, in helping you build a skill set to help you deal with struggles, and in working with those who struggle with eating disorders. I hope to help you work towards a better relationship with God and towards 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.

Beth has been amazing to work with and she has really helped me identify my repeating patterns over time. Now I am better at coping with all the current change in the world and the impacts on my life right now.

I love Beth. When I speak to her, it's like her voice is giving me a hug and I feel completely supported by her. She hears me and gently nudges me in directions I need to go. She eases my anxieties about reaching out to her and has given me tools to use in daily life when I feel overwhelmed. It's nice to not feel alone in my brain anymore.

Written by C.H. on Aug 18, 2020 after counseling with Beth Ellen for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

So far I’ve been working with her a short time but I get a really good message from her. She is focusing me on my thoughts and reactions and that is slowing me down and getting me to see things differently... I am appreciative of that

Beth is a great listener. She takes into consideration my situation and offers sound counseling based on that. I would recommend her to any friend or family member.

Written by D.A. on Mar 26, 2020 after counseling with Beth Ellen for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and grief

I have been working with Beth for a few weeks, and I am so happy to be matched up with her! She helps me on a daily basis, providing tools, resources, and an opportunity to talk about my anxiety to a warm and supportive listener. I don’t know how I would have muddled through the last few weeks without the new toolbox she has been helping me build, for coping with my anxiety while the world seems so insane. She checks in with me regularly and has already supported me through a truly scary time. I look forward to working with her more and tackling some of the other challenges, with her on my team! Thank you so much!

Beth is the best experience I've ever had in my history of counsellors.

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.

Written by C.L. on Jul 24, 2018 after counseling with Beth Ellen for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family, and eating

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!
