Dr. Beth Pausic


About Me

I am a NY state licensed psychologist with over 15 years of experience working as a therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, anger management, life transition, career coaching, relationship issues, health concerns, wellness, and trauma and adjustment.

We often get stuck in patterned ways of responding both to other people in our lives and also to our own thoughts and feelings. I work collaboratively with people to foster strengths in order to transform their behavior so that they live a life that feels purposeful and values-driven.

I utilize several treatment modalities including short and long term, individual, group, and family therapy. My training and approach includes psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral (CBT) therapy incorporating motivational interviewing and mindfulness. I offer a safe space to explore the wide range of emotions that you experience throughout your day. My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion.

My goal is to support the people I work with to develop increased flexibility. This often involves adapting and changing behaviors in ways that increase fulfillment and meaning.

I look forward to working together.

Dr. Pausic has made me feel heard and supported from day one of our communications. She has constantly validated my feelings while being encouraging of how to move forward in realistic ways. I would highly recommend working with Dr. Pausic!

Dr. Pausic is amazing, they really seem to care and knows how to prod me into sorting myself out rather than just saying I should or shouldn't do something or another.

Dr. Pausic is kind and thoughtful in her prompt replies. She has given me valuable feedback. I only wish I had found her sooner. She's one of the best counselors out there. I'm really impressed and it's only been a few weeks!

Dr. Pausic has been really wonderful to have in my life over the last few months. I was going through a very difficult and traumatic time when I first came to Better Help and I feel like I was matched with someone very experienced and understanding of my situation. Even though we have just corresponded via messages here, I have really felt her support and guidance. I was writing a few times per week at first and she was quick to reply, and those replies never failed to make me feel better and offer me fresh perspectives. She asks questions to really understand what I'm seeking insights on or help with, and sometimes in answering these I come to important realizations. I would definitely recommend Dr. Pausic and am so grateful I was matched with her!

Having Dr. Pausic in my corner has made such a difference! I'm traveling a lot at the moment and to have a consistent and knowledgeable advocate at my fingertips no matter where I am in the world has been a wonderful experience. I'm very thankful for her and for this service.

Beth provides timely responses, heartfelt input, and logical options of how to look at things. Dr Pausic has show herself to be very knowledgeable at directing you towards the root of your issues versus skipping over the bigger issues. Grateful for the guidance I receive from her.

Beth is very understanding and listens to concerns really well. She is professional and asks lots of questions so you can dig deeper into deep routed issues. She gives you suggestions, rather than telling you what to do and explains why you have been feeling the way you are, so it makes sense and puts things into perspective. Highly recommend speaking with her, she has been a huge help to me. Very kind and understanding!

I've only been in correspondence with Dr Pausic for a couple of weeks but I already feel like she has such a thorough understanding of my situation and my emotions, and is clearly putting a lot of thought in her responses to me. She's very validating, patient, and kind, and I'm so glad I got matched up with her!

Dr. Pausic is a wonderful therapist and she has been welcoming, kind and understanding since day one. I have been working with her only a few weeks and am still making my way to letting her get to know me, but I feel comfortable and most of all I feel she truly does not judge me and my way of reasoning in a moment of hardship for me. She makes me feel supported and comfortable and I know I can open up about anything. Would recommend her strongly.
