About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 25 years of experience in private practice. I am down to earth and pretty much laid back, with a great sense of humor. My approach is holistic, mindful and eclectic using cognitive behavioral and other therapeutic methods as needed. I have worked with clients of all ages and from all walks of life.
I specialize in anxiety, depression, grief, relationship issues, self esteem, sexual abuse, domestic violence, parenting, life transitions, blended families, and many other issues that concern my clients.
I work well with most people, regardless of their spiritual, religious beliefs or political beliefs. I am non-judgmental and do not criticize. I will be supportive and encouraging as you navigate this journey to feel better.
I will use my intuitive nature and empathetic feelings to help you work through difficult times. I want you to know that you do not have to do this alone. I am here to be with you in that place and be sensitive to your needs and concerns. I will provide you with a safe place to explore your thoughts and feelings, and sort through whatever is on your mind. Together we will look at the obstacles you are facing, and work at breaking them down. We will maximize your strengths, and help you to put forth the best version of yourself.
I look forward to meeting you!

Written by S.T. on Aug 29, 2018 after counseling with Bette for 1 month on issues concerning self esteem

Bette was great, I often sent long wondering tangents and she was always patient in reading it all and responding in a quick time frame. She had great advice and really helped me through a lot of my problems.

Written by C.H. on Apr 02, 2018 after counseling with Bette for 2 years and 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and depression

Bette has helped me through a difficult time in my life and helped me learn to cope with a lot of changes going on. She has provided me with some effective strategies which helped me to work through my issues in a positive way. Bette listens to what I have to say and does not delay in replying. She shows real empathy with whatever my problem is and responds with helpful suggestions for me to let go of any negativity and focus on the positive. Bette has been very supportive and even encouraged some of my own suggestions for coping. Over the last 2 years, she has helped me to overcome what I once thought was the end of the world for me and to put things into perspective. Bette is very caring, patient and understanding of whatever problems I've had and the suggestions and strategies she has given me will continue to benefit me throughout any other problems I face.

In the short time that I have been communicating with Bette, I have found myself much more peaceful in my mind and focused in terms of developing a plan for moving forward with my life. She is thoughtful, empathetic, and has given me some good insights into things I've struggled with lately.

Her intuition and advice is spot on and very wise. She is kind, caring, but will tell you what you need to hear for both your protection and a chance to learn from mistakes, make better choices, and live life after tragedy. I highly recommend her!!

Bette listens intently and gives amazing advice. She helped me through, and is still helping me through, a rough time in my life.

Written by J.U. on Jun 24, 2017 after counseling with Bette for 1 year and 10 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship, trauma and abuse, eating, parenting, self esteem, anger, career, and depression

I have been working with Bette for about a year, and she has been so helpful to me. I hit midlife with a lot of complex issues, and with Bette' s guidance, I see the issues more clearly, have attainable goals, and am working on plans to achieve those goals. I have very little family support, and knowing that Bette is there is such a great thing. She always listens and always responds in a very timely way. I am very grateful to have Bette as my therapist.

Thank you, Bette!

Bette is an amazing therapist! She asks very thought provoking questions and isn't afraid to tell it like it is. I have found comfort and direction through her words. Her response time is wonderful! I don't miss the "in person" therapy at all. Thank you, Bette!!! You are amazing!

Written by M.I on Jun 06, 2016 after counseling with Bette for 2 days on issues concerning parenting

My counselor was very helpful. She gave me good advice in a situation where I felt a little panicked. She was very easy to talk to and straight forward. I appreciate that as I'm a very busy mom of three. I was very happy with my counselor.

Written by B.E on Apr 22, 2016 after counseling with Bette for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and depression

She knows how to listen and tell you what you NEED to hear. I am forever grateful for her support and guidance. She just has this way of 'clicking' with what you are saying.

Written by N.I on Apr 17, 2016 after counseling with Bette for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, intimacy-related, anger, and depression

Bette is very easy to talk to and helpful without seeming pushy. She demonstrates that trait common to all good counselors: the ability to listen well. She offers candid, considered advice in just the right amounts where it is needed. She has helped me realize certain decisions that I didn't even realize that I had made. That is the hallmark of a skilled therapist. It feels natural to talk to her and she fosters a sense of trust effortlessly. I highly recommend her.

This little app and my counselor have been a great help. Someone I can talk to, and it feels safe and private!

Written by S.T on Jan 19, 2016 after counseling with Bette for 1 month on issues concerning trauma and abuse, and grief

Bette is experienced and down to earth..she's a good listener and interjects only when necessary to get you back on the road to healing. I love the online platform and having an older, wiser "big sister" at my fingertips.

Written by J.L on Jan 09, 2016 after counseling with Bette for 6 months

Written by J.E on Nov 23, 2015 after counseling with Bette for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and depression

I have enjoyed my sessions with Bette very much. She is very laid back, but has helped me to realize a few things about myself that I thought I had worked through already in the past. Needless to say, talking with her has helped me to really look at my life and see myself as I actually am.
