About Me

With more thirty years of practicing psychotherapy, I hold a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology from Antioch New England Graduate School and a Bachelors Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Burlington College. My expertise includes the treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, codependency and recovery from narcissistic and abusive relationships. My style is compassionate, authentic, and warm.
I am trained in EMDR, Internal Family Systems Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing. I use these innovative modalities to help people get to the root of their problems and therapeutically shift their beliefs and narratives about their life. These therapies are useful in helping clients reduce physical and emotional stress release old burdens, guilt and shame and improve confidence and connection with oneself.

Betsy has been very helpful in the month she has been my therapist, listening deeply and sharing her perspectives, which have afforded me a new lens with which to view my parts through. I appreciate her gentle way of guiding me on my healing journey.
