Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

About Me:

My name is Beth and I am an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. My goal as a therapist is to create a warm, welcoming, safe and non-judgmental space for individuals, couples and families to embark on their unique journeys toward emotional healing. I see myself not as an expert on your life, your challenges, and your relationships, but rather as a partner and guide as we move together toward discovering and achieving your goals. I honor that the vulnerability required to move through this process is daunting, therefore I move at your pace. It is important to me to create a space that is anti-racist and LGBTQIA+ affirming while recognizing that my own social location as a heterosexual, white woman requires that I am always doing my own work to see that that space remains safe.

I believe that our earliest experiences with our attachment figures have a lifelong impact on how we cope with life’s challenges and how we navigate relationships with our partners, our families, and others in our communities. For those who have experienced trauma in their earlier lives, this impact can be crippling over time. Our life experiences and social influences inform the ways that we cope, sometimes leading us in directions we do not desire and into ways of being in relationships that can be destructive. My belief is that at the heart of each and every human there are strengths and preferred narratives to be discovered and there is an innate ability to cultivate self-compassion, to heal from the past, to learn to communicate our needs and desires, and ultimately to create healthy relationships.

I am passionate about supporting you in achieving lasting connection, joy, and fulfillment in your relationships with your partner, your family, and your community and I hope you will consider taking this journey with me. You are worth it.

What Makes Me Credible:

I have experience supporting individuals, couples, and families dealing with depression, anxiety, the impacts of trauma, relationship distress, adjustment issues relating to family life transitions, as well as specialized training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders and supporting individuals and couples as they transition to parenthood. I always conceptualize client issues through a trauma-informed, attachment-based lens. I have experience applying aspects of Narrative Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I view myself as a perpetual student of the art and science of therapy and believe that my clients are my greatest teachers.
