About me

Welcome! worked as a counselor, social worker, and life coach for more that 20 years. I am currently licensed in the state of Alaska.

I focus my work on what is going with you at the present time, the things you are most concerned about. I work here part-time so I specialize in brief, solution focused therapy and life coaching. Mindful awareness is part of my life and my work. I practice Inner Wisdom hypnotherapy and Reiki.

I enjoy working with people in my state and international clients. I honor differences in culture, gender, religion, race, lifestyles and beliefs.

I live on a remote island in the rain forest of southeast Alaska. I travel several months a year. I love to create things with pen and paper, yarn, beads, and clay. I practice mindfulness meditation and create art journals to record and process my life experience.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with things that are important to you!

I haven't been working with Beverly for very long, but so far, she has been so wonderful! She is a great communicator and has a great energy about her that makes me feel comfortable opening up with her. I deal with a lot of anxiety on a day to day basis and often feel uncomfortable opening up to people and telling them what I am thinking (including past therapists), but Beverly makes me feel safe to speak my truth without judgment, which is such a wonderful quality to have for someone in her profession!

Beverly is a compassionate and bright person. In just a few sessions she had terrific insights and suggestions that made some immediate improvement for me. I highly recommend Beverly if you are stuck in life, marriage, etc.

Beverly is just amazing! I’m sad that I have to change my therapist because I live in a different state now.

Signing up with BetterHelp was not my first experience with seeking therapy for stress management/depression/anxiety. However, my sessions with Beverly has been hands down the experience I’ve had. We clicked right away and I felt completely understood and heard. Her suggestions and guidance have been insightful, practical, and helpful. Highly recommend!
