MS, MFT (LMFT41082)

BethI have been providing psychotherapy services in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1998. I provide a safe and nurturing environment where we can explore feelings and the impact they have on our lives. I have a warm, nonjudgmental, informal and interactive style. I honor your values and beliefs (including those within a spiritual framework) as we explore how they may pertain to behavior which is helpful or harmful. I often use humor as a means to maintain safety and balance in our work together.

For over 15 years, I have helped men and women heal the complex emotions we experience with loss resulting from various life transitions or the death of a loved one (including pets). These emotions are complicated by additional dynamics when the loss is due to sudden or violent death, suicide, or long-term illness, or by challenges associated with long-term caregiving. By working together, I can help you to experience healing and find ways to move forward with your life again, while honoring your loved one and keeping their memory alive.

I also help adults in the later stages of life to address the unique concerns associated with aging and end-of-life planning. I have worked with many older adults who are struggling with caregiver challenges due to long-term illness in the family or dependent children/grandchildren living with them.

In addition, I specialize in working with survivors of domestic violence, violent crimes, and childhood trauma/abuse. I can help you work through painful memories and events and begin the process of long-term healing and the creation of new beginnings.

I am a licensed Marriage and Therapy Therapist and a graduate of the Somatic Experiencing® Trauma Institute. I am also certified through the International Association of Trauma Professionals and the Association for Death Education and Counseling. In addition, I have an MBA and a previous career in human resources within the public sector. To find out more about my professional background, please visit my website at
