Betty Acierno

(LCSW)

About Me

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 is so patient and compassionate. She listens to me, but tells me what I need to hear. She is my personal cheerleader. I feel completely safe with her, and I couldn't imagine my healing journey with anyone else.

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.
