I think relationships are really important and much of my work centers around supporting and navigating relationships. I offer individual counseling for adults, adolescents, and children as young as three years old. I also offer social skills groups for children.

My approach with you will be tailored to your specific needs. With adults and teenagers, I take an integrative approach, incorporating elements from several counseling theories. When I work with children, I use carefully selected games, art, and other interactive activities to help them identify and express their thoughts and feelings. Children communicate a great deal about their internal emotional world through their actions and behaviors! If you have questions about my philosophy or approach, feel free to ask!

Please visit my website for more resources and information. You can also "follow" me on Twitter @betsysmithlpc where I post articles and information about mental health.

More Info About My Practice

Some of the services that I offer include:

It is easiest to reach me directly by phone, email, or through my website. I offer a free initial phone consultation so that I can understand more about your situation, and you can have the opportunity to get to know me and ask any questions that you may have.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help

When you call, I will ask you to share with me what concern you have that prompted your call. I may also ask questions about what things you have tried so far to address the concern.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Everyone experiences negative emotions and struggles in life. It can be hard to tell when you are simply experiencing a difficult time, and when you may need additional help.

Still unsure? This is precisely the reason that I offer a free initial consultation. If you are unsure about whether you or a family member could benefit from counseling, call and ask! I will be happy to discuss your observations and concerns--with no pressure to schedule an appointment or begin therapy. If I can provide you with additional information or resources, I will do that as well.
