I offer a practice which starts with the base belief that all beings are inherently good. That said, we often develop patterns at an early age due to traumas or other circumstances that no longer serve us later in life and we forget who we really are and what our purpose is. My intention is to create a safe space where others can peel back the layers to discover what it is they have been looking for.
My primary theoretical approach is Relational Therapy. I also use gestalt, mindfulness, wilderness practices, art, and Transpersonal Therapy. My degree is in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology with a specialization in Wilderness Therapy. Wilderness Therapy is about relationship to nature and how our relationship with nature can be healing. I utilize nature in my office and outside of the office.
I bring with me a background in crisis work with couples, families, and teens and have learned a great deal about myself and others through the process. I have also worked with families, couples, and adults of various ages. One of the pieces I hold dear is that we all carry a range of emotions, some that scare us or others and some that we prize, all of these emotions can be expressed and my job as a therapist is to create a safe place to do just that.

Beginning therapy and working with Bethany over the past several weeks has been nothing short of life changing. Bethany has helped me immensely by being an encouraging, compassionate, and supportive role in my life. I cannot express enough the weight that had been lifted off my shoulders since beginning meeting with her and cannot recommend BetterHelp enough.
