My Approach

it's all about relationships

I firmly believe that the best therapy is one based on a relationship designed to help you achieve YOUR goals. That said, I am strategically oriented and solution focused. Trained at Fairfield University, I have an analytical mind and am recognized for my strong ability to quickly conceptualize cases and get to the heart of the matter so that you can get on with the business of enjoying your life and the people in it. Understanding relational patterns, reconciling losses and changing course is a process that demands respect and compassion, and I offer my clients both. I find incredible joy in watching clients establish and restore healthy relationships. The greatest obstacles, when squarely met, can be overcome and transformed into a wellspring of strength.


Why Me?

there are many therapists

Choosing a therapist has to be a “fit” and perhaps for the first time in a while you will need to really trust your gut in making the decision to allow someone into the nitty-gritty of your personal life and walk alongside you while helping you reach your goals. So, trust your instincts! And know that I am a therapist who has been through and – this is important – worked through – many of the concerns my clients present with. For me, this makes all the difference and allows me to provide an emotionally healing environment with an eye toward solutions and contentment.


Clients I've Helped

Betsy is an incredibly compassionate and thoughtful therapist. While battling crippling anxiety and the loss of a family member, Betsy guided and counseled me to understand and take control of my anxiety while being kind to myself. She provided me with the support to take control of my negative and irrational thoughts, to now see each day in a positive light.

Living in Freedom

are you living the life you want?

I believe in empowering others to possess the keys to live life to their fullest potential. The challenges we face in life are often our greatest opportunities for personal growth and life metamorphosis . Therapy can help you move from simple coping, surviving or even burying your challenges to living a life of freedom and joy. Many years of working with individuals and couples, as well as my own life and relationship challenges/experiences has increased my level of empathy, respect, and understanding in the many aspects of life transition, love, loss and relationship.
