"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain." -Vivian Greene. For more than 20 years, I have had the privilege of providing behavioral health services for individuals experiencing a variety of mental health issues and personal challenges. I believe in empowering my clients through emotional support, gaining insight, learning coping skills, and learning how to challenge those beliefs and thoughts that increase suffering. Along with mindfulness and cognitive approaches, I use somatic therapies that help you access your body's intrinsic healing capabilities. I would like to work with you to help you achieve lasting changes in your life.
My counseling style is collaborative, compassionate, empowering, and goal-directed. I'm an empathetic listener, and I also teach, gently challenge, inspire, motivate, and encourage you to come to your own conclusions. I am a Somatic Experiencing® Practitioner, and I have integrated these skills in my practice since 2015. I am also trained in Integral Somatic Psychology.

Bethany has changed my life! I went into therapy as a father to a 6 month old son, and I was super anxious and worried about everything. Within a few months, Bethany helped me dampen my anxiety to almost non-existent. After working on that, we moved on to other areas, and she has helped me work through SO MUCH. She has truly changed who I am as a person and everyone in my life has noticed this and they all love it. If I could give Bethany a million star review, I would. She is AMAZING

Bethany helped me through a time of great change in my life, which also included dealing with some very old stuff. She was an outstanding combination of kind and challenging, with heavy emphasis on kind which was important because I'm unfailingly critical of myself. She helped me to be present through good times as well as bad. Five stars all around!

Bethany has been a wonderful therapist. She's very caring and considerate, but also encourages challenging yourself to step outside of your comfort zone. She's very friendly as well, and she is great to talk to. Overall, Bethany has been a huge help for me and I'm very grateful for her.
