About me

Hey there and welcome! I am a Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years of experience working in the Mental Health and Addiction fields. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, parenting problems, career/life change, military adjustment concerns, LGBTQ+ and relationship issues.

I believe each person is unique and so I use a person centered approach with a very warm, non-judgemental and compassionate style. I believe in treating others with the highest level of respect and dignity. I will meet you where you are and move with you at your pace. I don't believe in stigmatizing labels--the world does enough of that.

I acknowledge the courage it takes to seek out answers and create a more rewarding life! I also commend you for your choice in owning the goal to be a healthier YOU! I look forward to joining you on your journey to an improved, happier YOU!

Bethany is very present, a great listener and wonderful therapist that really helps me face and process what is happening in my life. She had helped me through a very very stressful time and helped me discover tools that I can use for the future. I highly recommend her.

I came to Bethany with a mountain of concerns. She’s been so patient with me and this process. Bethany not only listens and guides but is not afraid to call me in. I literally couldn’t have asked for a better therapist my first time seeking therapy. I feel like I truly hit the jackpot.
