Betsy 4As a Therapist I work with individuals, couples and families providing counseling for many types of relationships. I offer couple and marriage counseling, pre-marital counseling,  counseling for blended families, parenting, and/or step-parenting and individual mental health counseling. I treat those who are experiencing life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, self esteem issues, anger, conflicts, doubt, and a wide variety of other problems and concerns. Located conveniently off I-5 in Lacey, I serve the Lacey, Olympia, Thurston County and Dupont areas.

I believe therapy is about development and progression.  Therapy can and often should be a challenging process. Recognizing that change can be hard at times, I strive to provide a safe, confidential, and comfortable atmosphere. I work hard to balance a client’s desire to change and need for support and stability by providing a challenging yet nurturing environment. Change requires patience and courage. It is important to me that we establish a mutual trusting therapeutic relationship in order for therapeutic sessions to be productive, optimized and beneficial.
