Bethany works with adolescents and adults who are experiencing difficulty with stress management, self-esteem, relations, and life and career transitions, helping them to transform unproductive beliefs and behaviors and increase self-awareness and flexibility in meeting life’s challenges. She focuses on helping clients move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, fostering a productive, flexible perspective which ultimately helps them achieve their goals. She guides clients towards living intentionally and becoming active by exploring roadblocks that prevent clients from being present and more effective.
While using a collaborative strengths-based approach drawing from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), mindfulness-based interventions, and narrative therapy Bethany addresses both the mental and physical components of wellbeing. With an interest in this interconnection, she leads her clients to better understand themselves and gain control and confidence in managing their concerns. She believes that by taking the time to be present, clients can enhance their experience thus leading to a more fulfilling life.
Bethany is originally from Miami, Florida.

During her graduate program, she gained extensive experience working at a counseling clinic and a homeless shelter program supporting a diverse clientele of adolescents, adults, couples, and families dealing with a variety of concerns including depression, anxiety, trauma, relational issues, and self-worth. Bethany is as well certified with Connection Coalition, a non-profit organization that provides trauma-informed yoga programming and is a member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.
