About Me

Welcome! My name is Nancy Elizabeth "Beth" Boyett, LICSW, and I have been helping people for over 27 years, in a variety of settings to find their safe places and achieve their goals. I have a private practice in Fairhope, Alabama, and have lived abroad and in rural and metropolitan areas in the United States. I have respect for all cultures that promote peace and equality for women, men, and non-binary individuals.

I practice from a person-centered approach. I start where you are. I have experience with helping people navigate depression, anxiety, family stressors, post-traumatic stress disorder, marital issues, caretaker and hospice related issues, first responders trauma on the job, and generally, any transitional issues a person might experience in this ever-changing world.

I was trained in clinical social work at University of Tennessee School of Social Work (Memphis Medical Campus) and completed second year internship in the psychiatric emergency room at The Med, a trauma center. Prior to becoming a clinical social worker, I was a professor of English. I attended the Iowa Writers Workshop and earned a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Iowa in 1988. Prior to becoming a therapist, I was a visiting assistant professor at Rhodes College (Memphis, TN) and Franklin Pierce College (Rindge, NH.) Additionally, I studied sociology at the University of Sussex in Falmer Brighton England.

I welcome the chance to help you along your life's path. I am here to help.

Written by T.A. on Jun 30, 2022 after therapy with Nancy for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, and compassion fatigue

Nancy is friendly, kind, and always remembers specific details about my life. I have spoken with her regularly for about a year now, and I am always surprised by the detail she is able to remember about the things I have told her. She is also very accepting of different types of lifestyles (queer, poly) and I have never felt judged by her whatsoever. I have had a great experience so far with her as my therapist. If you want a compassionate ear to listen to your struggles, definitely choose Nancy.

I’ve been working with Beth for a few weeks and the impact she’s had on my wellbeing has gone beyond what I thought possible. She’s helped me gain the perspective I needed and has been so helpful in surfacing and connecting insights across different areas of my life. She’s also been really sensitive to certain challenges we face in the LGBT community. In such a short time, I’ve grown to feel lighter and hopeful, and I look forward to continue working with her. This has been my first experience seeking therapy - I’d genuinely recommend Beth to anyone!

Written by J.A. on May 18, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, and career difficulties

I've been working with Nancy for a month now and I really look forward to our sessions every week. I feel extremely comfortable with her, I feel like I can tell her anything that is on my mind and she always listens. She's great at relaying what I have told her and applying it in a larger picture to what is going on in my life, and I have confidence that I will continue to be able to grow in all areas of my life with her by my side! I am a part of the LGBTQ community and I would highly recommend her to anyone else from this community who may be feeling nervous about the person that they choose to work with.

Written by H.A. on Apr 02, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, self esteem, coping with life changes, coaching, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Beth is insightful, compassionate, brilliant, and absolutely one of a kind. I never thought therapy could feel this way - comfortable, joyful, and easy. I swear I wholeheartedly laugh AND cry in every session. She remembers EVERY single thing I bring up in our sessions and then takes what I say further - filling in blanks, connecting dots, picking up on patterns, and helping me understand my own life narrative in a fresh and healing way. I just can't believe how lucky I am to have found Beth and can't wait to keep diving deeper into this important work of detangling the negative thought patterns that underpin my anxiety, perfectionism, and inner critic.

Written by B.R. on Mar 27, 2021 after therapy with Nancy for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, compassion fatigue, and adhd

Totally down to earth and very, very helpful. Seems to be able to assess what is going on VERY quickly (took only a few appointments) instead of months to get to the real issues.

Beth has been such a positive influence on my life in the past few months! She pays attention to the tiny details in my life, and is always engaged in our conversations. She is my champion! She truly has my best interests at heart, and has helped me break through some walls with self-esteem. I am so grateful to have been paired with her!! I look forward to our weekly sessions, and anybody would be lucky to have a therapist as compassionate and fun as her.

Written by K.R. on Oct 22, 2020 after therapy with Nancy for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, and coping with life changes

Nancy is amazing. She is the perfect combination of listening/talking as a therapist. Its so important to have someone that you feel comfortable with especially in a virtual setting and from the beginning of the conversation, she provides that comfort. I was hesitant to try virtual therapy but it has been the best decision I've ever made.
