About Me

Hello and Welcome,

Thank you for reaching out for help and support. You have already taken the first step to feeling better by engaging in the therapeutic counseling process. Many times, meeting with a therapist or being in counseling for the first time can be stressful. I hope to put you at ease if this is the case. I provide a safe, caring, non-judgmental space to process your concerns and move forward in a positive direction. If you have been in therapy before, welcome back. Building trust in a therapeutic relationship is the highest priority for me. I feel honored and humbled when clients let me into their world.

In the counseling relationship you will find you do not have to be alone in your struggles. You deserve the very best that life has to offer and you are certainly able to attain a happy, healthy sense of well-being. Everything you need to increase your awareness and reach a healing state is already within you. I believe that you are the expert of you.

I graduated from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Social Work. Throughout my 20 years experience, I have provided both brief and long-term therapy. I provide individual, couple, and family therapy. My expertise includes:
Life transition
Relationship/marital
Coping/loss
Mood disorders
Stress/anxiety
Women's issues
Trauma work
Childhood sexual abuse
Personal growth
GLBT issues
Effective communication skills
Conflict resolution
Parent/child

I help clients define their goals for treatment and incorporate a variety of therapeutic modalities to meet their individual needs.

I will meet you where you are at and help you make sense of your experiences. I will help you better understand who you are and figure out how to change the things that are keeping you stuck. I would welcome the opportunity to help you explore your concerns and share some tools and techniques to help you navigate your path forward.

Beverly has been a wonderful therapist. She has helped me to raise my awareness of things I have carried with me from my childhood that are not serving me. She continually challenges me to actualize my goal of becoming the best person I can be.

Written by K.E. on Feb 18, 2022 after therapy with Beverly for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Beverly is an absolute pleasure to work with she has so many great options and solutions whether it just be something you need to work on personally or with in your relationship. I come out of every session learning something and having a new skill I can use to better myself and my relationship. She’s also very easy to talk to and never makes you feel uncomfortable about any topics. I couldn’t ask for a better counselor.

I have seen Beverly G. on and off again through the last year and she is absolutely amazing! She always makes me feel heard but also let’s me know I feel heard while giving me feedback but not in a negative way. Sometimes I don’t understand why I feel or do the things I do and she is always there to help and make me feel like I’m talking with a friend!

Written by M.I. on Dec 29, 2020 after therapy with Beverly for 7 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and trauma and abuse

I love the BetterHelp app because it allowed me to put in the specifics of what I was looking for in a therapist as well as what I needed from my therapist. Beverly was the first profile I reviewed and it matched perfectly. She has helped me get through short term concerns as well as long-term problems even when I didn’t have counseling sessions because she gave me so much knowledge I was able to continue practicing the skills that she had taught me when I was not able to have sessions on a regular basis. I’m excited to begin regular sessions again and I’m happy that she is available for me.
