About me

* Women's Counseling*

Hi there! My name is Betsy Petersen and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker providing women's counseling services. I received my education from the University of Tennessee and have been working in the mental health field since 2014.

I strive to bring an empathetic and motivated approach to women's therapy to explore all areas of life that affect the person and their environment. I provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Client-Centered Therapy as a starting point, but also integrate other techniques that match clients’ needs, personality, and comfort level. I specialize in working with women in all stages of life with a focus on stress and anxiety, depression, female-related issues, self-esteem, and life transitions.

I understand that reaching out for help can be difficult. Thank you for allowing me to help, and I look forward to working with you!

In the short time that I have been meeting with Betsy, I have begun to see some major improvements in a variety of areas of my life. Betsy listens extremely and offers practical advice and insights. I like that she asks clarifying questions when needed (this shows that she truly wants to understand my point of view). The worksheets she provides throughout the week have also been a great tool to add to my toolbox.
