About Me

Hello,
I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and hold an MEd in Community Counseling from the University of Miami, Florida. I have had many years of experience counseling people who are suffering from anxiety and depression, PTSD, loss and grief, relationship issues and other problems in the field of mental health. I am confident that together we can identify the issues that are troubling you and work together to help you feel better and stronger.
While a Client-Centered approach and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are my main treatment modalities, I use others as dictated by my client's needs. The relationship between client and therapist, between you and me, is foremost and will be one of acceptance and trust. Being able to speak freely gives us the opportunity to work through your issues, thus realizing positive mental health.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you!

Betty has been a real help to me. She listens and helps me see things in a new way. I’ve noticed, over time, that her words often come back to me and help me deal with situations in a healthier way.

Betty is a great counselor. She listens, follows up, and helps you to think or see things differently. I highly recommend talking with Betty.

Wonderfully patient and kind. I've very much enjoyed our sessions and found them to be helpful!

Written by K.A. on Nov 23, 2020 after counseling with Betty for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

As someone going to therapy for the first time, I had certain ideas and anxieties about what it would be like. Betty exceeded all of my expectations and calmed any nervousness I felt prior to our sessions.
Throughout my time with Betty, she has truly lifted me out of some of the most difficult experiences of my life. She has exquisitely helped me through difficult life changes, family discord, childhood trauma, and PTSD from relationship abuse. Regardless of the subject matter, I know that we will laugh together in our session at least once and I always feel inspired after finishing time with her.
I wish everyone could have Betty as their therapist; the world would be a kinder, more communicative, and appreciative place. I feel lucky to have her in my life.

Betty is great, professional, concise, and addresses my questions, comments, concerns.

Better Help: Don't really like paying on a weekly basis for a service I may utilize 2 x per month as opposed to weekly.

Betty has been a wonderful listener and gives good advice based on what is discussed. All the things recommended to do by her have been very beneficial to my situation. She is very supportive and unbiased in what she says and does. I would definitely come back if the need was to arise.
