Hi, I'm Betsy Auray
I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist specializing in helping people transform and enhance their lives and their relationships. My passion is in helping clients experience freedom, love, success, and joy. Healthy relationships (with ourselves and others) are what makes life successful and meaningful. My approach is warm, interactive, direct, and solution-focused. I am committed to providing a safe, accepting and non-judgmental emotional space for you to comfortably talk about your concerns. I believe in a holistic integrative systemic approach, and use various modalities to help you attain your therapeutic goals. I provide individual therapy, couples counseling, and group counseling for a wide variety of concerns, particularly those related to recovery issues, codependency, and conflictual relationships.
By examining and externalizing the patterns that permeate our lives, together we discover opportunities for change. With hard work, (yep, actual work!) growth and change become possible. As a human being and a therapist, there is nothing more rewarding than being a part of that transformative process. For me, it’s all come together — adoption, a childhood fraught with dysfunction, and inevitably my own long walk into and away from the patterns that once dominated my life — these have left me with a belief in the innate desire for health in every human being and in the transformative power of connection.
When not working with clients, I enjoy travel, running marathons, hiking, walking my bernese mountain dog, and spending time with my three amazing young adult children.

nothing so gentle as real strength”
