My name is Bethany Gravely. I have been a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker since 2018. I continue to feel the same passion for my job now as I did when I first started.
I am so proud of you for taking the first step to talk about your mental health. Choosing the right therapist can be a rewarding experience, but also scary. It is my job to help you navigate the stressors of life and explore different ways for you to cope with them. We all experience stress on some level so your feelings are valid and worth discussing with someone who truly cares!
My style of counseling allows for you to be in charge of your therapy. If you want helpful reading material, evidenced based practices, solutions or just a listening ear, my goal is to help you with where you are today. You are not a burden. You are not undeserving. You are not broken, or a mess to be cleaned up. You are so endlessly enough.

Bethany is the best. She responds very quickly, she listens, gives advice and puts herself in your shoes. I went through a nasty divorce, nasty custody battle and losing someone near to me all by myself. It was the worst 2 years of my life. Thanks to her helping me work through issues, I’m the best I’ve been in a while. I’m SO happy I got matched with her.
