All Things Substance

The place for therapists to hear about substance use and recovery from a mental health perspective.

Hey there,

I’m Betsy

I grew up in a western suburb of Chicago located at the southern end of Lake Michigan. I attended Michigan State University for my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2000. And attended Wheaton College for my Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology in 2003.

I’ve had the opportunity to work in a number of different capacities in my career. In terms of therapy, my specialties are working with clients who have trauma and substance abuse.

I found that the substance abuse training many of us received wasn’t enough to help us feel equipped to manage substance abuse. It’s my mission to share relevant information with therapists to help them add substance use to their scope of practice.
