I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the State of Florida. I have more than 8 years experience in the medical and mental health field. I received a masters degree, bachelors degree, and aging certificate from Florida Atlantic University. I graduated with highest honors from the college of social work. I have dedicated half my life to the field of mental health, in particular, codependency and empowerment. I completed my internships and was hired by a local hospice. My specialties there were grief and loss, depression, anxiety, trauma, anger. My treatment approach is rather laid back, but is set on the foundation of having a therapeutic relationship, to include using theory's such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, Narrative Therapy, and Mindfulness. It has been an honor and privilege to assist people through some of the most difficult times of their lives. I love to watch people grow and become empowered to make their own life choices and decisions.

Betty has been an incredible help in discovering how to better myself, FOR myself. She is kind and honest and open with her own experiences in dealing with mental health, which makes being able to open up to her so much easier and much more enjoyable. I feel like I am heard and understood when speaking with her. She has truly been a gift and I’m forever grateful for all she’s done to help me so far.
After life altering changes in December 2020, I was just in a big funk. My best friend was my recliner. No TV, or friends or anything. I saw the ad for BetterHelp on something and had been thinking I needed to get out of this funk and did realize I needed a hand. BetterHelp & Betty to the rescue! Just the acknowledgment of my feelings, then allowing me to work through them was brilliant. I did not make it particularly easy for her in that I write everything as opposed to a video chat or other method, but she’s always right there and says exactly the right thing.
I’m out of my funk for now. If I ever need Betty or BetterHelp again I will reach out. I’ve already recommended it to a couple people who could use a bit of help getting out of their funk.
Betty is a fantastic therapist! I am back with her for a second time and so looked forward to working with her again. She knew exactly what I needed and has helped me to attain my goals. Truly blessed to have her on my journey of personal growth.
Betty has a gentle and compassionate spirit!
She is non judgemental when I share things and it reasonable in her suggestions. She is easy to talk to and knowledgeable and I am blessed to have her as a therapist.
Betty is absolutely incredible. She goes out of her way to make sure she is there whenever you need her. She does everything she can to provide tools to help you so that eventually, you are able to healthily help yourself. I could not be more grateful for everything she has helped me realize about myself and all of the hardships she has helped me work through.

Betty is fantastic! I love working with her.
She’s wonderful to work with.
Counseling sessions with her are like having a friend sitting on the front porch sipping a mint julep or tea and talking about uncomfortable topics in a comforting way. Then getting busy digging the weeds out of the flowerbed of my life.
Betty makes me feel comfortable, which allows me understand my thoughts. She explains the feeling practically so that I understand fully what I’m feeling. Then, she gives me tools and homework that keep the process moving forward. I look forward to the next message and talk.
Betty is an amazing therapist. She helped me to make an important decision and get through it. She responds promptly to messages and gives the best feedbacks.

I’ve been talking with Betty for a few weeks now and I’ve already made such an improvement! She checks in frequently and gives me effective tools and worksheets to complete to help reflect on myself and my progress. It’s so nice to have someone to talk to that understands what you are going through.
