About Me

Hi. My name is Beth and I have been a social worker for 20 years, primarily I have worked as a therapist. I have worked with persons who are dealing with life problems whether basic or complex. I am believer in the person. Help me help you to help yourself. Some times we can get so caught up in life that we forget we've got the strengths we do to pull ourselves out of bad situations--until someone comes along and reminds us, the answer was there all along.
My focus is you. I want to go where you want to take me, I am a client centered therapist who utilizes motivational interviewing and solution focused techniques. The most important part of therapy is the rapport between myself and you, having that connection is the key to success.

I have worked with persons with and without diagnosable mental health difficulties including substance abuse and trauma. I believe in mindfulness based techniques, i am a strong supporter of journaling--though realize and respect that it isn't for everyone. I believe we all have the power to heal ourselves, it is just that sometimes we need some help, and there's nothing wrong with that. To come to a place like this and ask for help is a huge step, how brave you are.

Beth has been incredibly helpful and understanding. She has given me so many tools to help me navigate difficult family situations. I have seen an improvement in how I handle situations, set boundaries, and frame conversations after only a few months of therapy. I am very grateful for her expertise.

I absolutely love Beth and am so happy to have been paired with her. She's supportive without also being enabling, is remarkably kind, witty, and patient. I feel so fortunate to have her in my corner.

Right from the first conversation, Beth keyed into what was happening for me. She's given me good suggestions and feedback. I look forward to our sessions. Beth sends messages and affirmations regularly.

Beth is a great therapist! She really listens to me and I am glad we have the same sense of humor. I appreciate the meditations and affirmations that she sends during the week. I really enjoy the video sessions that we have and her ability to connect and listen to me.

Divorce and separation are hard but through this complicated time of my life, I was able to have Beth she made me feel strong confident, and able to get through this. I would strongly recommend her service.

Beth laughs at all my bad jokes and is an excellent listener. She is direct and to the point without ever making me feel judged or criticized. She gave me several tools that help me in difficult moments and was always good at checking in and making sure my self-care was being prioritized. Thank you, Beth!

Beth Leary is a very understanding and supportive therapist. Although I haven’t been using BetterHelp for very long I can already feel how much it has helped me by just having someone there to listen to you when we you need it and help you realize something or recommend something worth doing.
