About Me

I am so grateful that I have been supporting people to make positive changes in their lives for 20 years as a licensed clinical social worker! I have worked in many settings in Arizona and Colorado, including a community mental health crisis center, community counseling agency, private practice, addiction treatment clinic and several schools. I have had the privilege of working with clients with a wide range of presenting issues across the lifespan including adjustment issues, anxiety and depression, gender and sexuality concerns, addiction, parenting challenges, relationship issues and life transitions.

I take a personalized, eclectic approach to therapy and like to include techniques from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Rational Emotive Therapy among other modalities. I appreciate the courage it takes to address challenging issues in life in order to make change and improvements in our lives and relationships. I would be honored to support you in this process!

Love her no nonsense approach, we quickly identified a path forward, came up with some concrete, positive steps to take & I am excited to finally feel like I have some control/power to help improve my relationship with my daughter that I’ve been dealing with for ~10 yrs!!

I've really enjoyed working with Betsy thus far. I can tell that the work that we've done is working because I'm able to have conversations with others that I wasn't previously without feeling so overwhelmed. I feel lighter and happier and I know we're getting to the real root of things.

Betsy has helped me to find the answers and solutions that I needed to move forward in life. She is attentive, patient, and kind. She has given me tools to make positive changes in my life and I feel grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.
