I'm in my fifties now, and I have been a lifelong counselor; I think it probably started on the kindergarten playground. I've been in a Christian marriage for over 30 years, have two grown sons, and two grandchildren. I have been counseling in private practice in Nebraska since receiving my Professional Counseling degree from Grand Canyon University in early 2015 and have recently moved to South Dakota where I am also licensed and working as a full time therapist. I am a spiritually mature Christian and I have been able to assist hundreds of clients of all beliefs and walks of faith in my counseling career. I simply meet my clients where they are and together we focus on where they want to be. Where it is you'd like to be?
My clients love their work with me and I know this because they refer me to their family and friends! I am a positive, solution-oriented, compassionate counselor with a short-term, no-excuses, future-focused, empowering approach. Clients often feel immediate relief and find hope in dire circumstances after just one session, and then we just get together to reinforce the principles, learn new skills and practice their application. I help my clients regain control of their own emotional state so they can weather any present or future storm, even if that storm seems to come from their past.
I believe my deep faith and midwest roots help me to connect in a more compassionate way with my clients. I am skilled at finding the best parts of clients and letting them shine. I love lifting lids, unlocking new perspectives, and releasing hope. I like to teach principles and skills clients can use both in their current situations and over the course of their lifetime. I want nothing more than to equip my clients for everyday life and future challenges -- I want the benefits of therapy to extend way beyond our counseling relationship.

I’ve been working with Beth for a little over a year and she has been wonderful. I’ve grown a ton over the last year and am so excited to continue on this path. If you’re a freelancer, self employed etc. she has been a great resource in helping me manage that workload. She’s been available and always supportive.

Beth is an amazing counsellor.
She has been the best therapist I’ve had so far, she always has the right things to say to make me feel better and lead me along the joirney of discovering the right path forward. Highly recommend her as a therapist, she has been the most kind and helpful to me.
Besides, I live in Australia and the time difference is half a day but her schedule was so flexible it made it available for me to talk to her even when it was early morning or late evening her time. Really appreciate that.
