Beth focuses on the utilization of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and other mindfulness and compassion focused approaches to help clients improve mental health, build new habits of mind and behavior, and move toward optimal wellness. Beth specializes in working with clients to help them overcome self-criticism, feelings of shame and low self-worth, and behaviors of perfectionism that can paradoxically lead to both over-striving and under-functioning, procrastination or avoidance. These patterns of thought and behavior are also often linked to feelings of anxiety, shame or depression, or to difficulty accessing the positive emotional states that contribute to a sense of fulfillment and the ability to engage in self-care.

Beth is also an Approved Clinical Supervisor and enjoys teaching and training emerging counselors and professionals in the field. She also works collaboratively with other health and mental health practitioners to support compassion focused approaches to individual, organizational, and community health and wellness.
