About Me

I am happy that you are seeking some help for whatever you are struggling with in your life. We all have times that are challenging or overwhelming, and it is a sign of strength to reach out!

I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a Master's Degree in Counseling. I have worked in schools, colleges, public mental health, and private therapy settings.
I believe strongly in the importance of providing an open, safe environment for clients to communicate, and also in the development of a caring and supportive relationship to help ensure positive therapeutic outcomes.

I embrace a client-centered approach, meaning I believe in your capacity to self-direct your own life, and see my role as someone to accompany you on your journey for a time, to help you find solutions that make sense for you.

It took me several tries to find a counselor that worked with me, but Betsey is exactly who I was looking for! She’s supportive and encouraging but also challenges me. She’s given me some great resources so far as we build my “toolbox” that I can use when my anxiety kicks up.

She is great

Betsy has been great. She listens and is understanding, offers suggestions without being pushy and really values the patient / caregiver relationship. She will be my go-to therapist from now on.

One of the most caring, compassionate, and understanding therapists I have had the pleasure of working with. Betsy is extremely flexible in terms of scheduling and always happy to chat through any issues I’m having. And she always seems to have a few ideas in terms of strategies to adapt in any challenging situation I’m experiencing. I would recommend her to anyone seeking out support!

Elizabeth (“Betsy”) Murdock is an excellent counselor and I would recommend her to anyone who wishes to receive help from someone who has experience beyond professional qualifications. I am an experienced health professional in need of assistance and feel right at home tackling complicated family, professional and relationship dynamics with Betsy’s help. I have no reservations about Betsy’s ability as a counselor and would recommend her to any member of my family.

Betsy is kind, thoughtful, supportive and an incredible counselor. She listens deeply and provides really awesome insight and advice. She’s walked me through some tough times and helped me grow— for that I am forever grateful. BetterHelp is so lucky to have her.

Betsy is great. Keeps checking on me even when I don't have the energy to respond. I'm happy I was paired with her.

I think that Betsy is an incredible counselor. I feel like we get so much done together in a very short period of time, and that my time with her is very valuable.
