Addressing the good, the bad
and the ugly in therapy

Cannabis is becoming BIG business…

What does it mean for us that marijuana is becoming legal in more places? Does it change how we react to it with therapy?


There’s a lot of information on the internet about marijuana and a lot of it isn’t accurate. In order for us to examine how therapists should respond to the changing landscape of marijuana we need to have accurate information. That’s where I did the research so you don’t have to!


In this 2 hour
Zoom webinar we will cover:

  • Common claims about marijuana and what research tells us about their accuracy.
  • Facts about the different forms of marijuana and how they are used
  • The potential impact of the use of THC on therapy and mental health.
  • How different forms of THC (oil, wax, plant) impact people differently

Hi, I’m Betsy.

I’m here to help you gain confidence and competence in working with substance use.

I’m a licensed therapist, substance use counselor, clinical supervisor and a person in long-term recovery from substance use. I am passionate about bringing solid, research-based information to my fellow therapists about drugs and alcohol.

Like many of you, I didn’t get enough training about substance use and had to figure it out on my own. That was a long and tedious road. I am committed to helping colleagues gain the information they need without having to track it down themselves. 

Clincally speaking, I stepped down from being the director of a community mental health agency in 2019 and went into private practice. I love being able to work from home! I live in the woods of NW Wisconsin with my husband, two kittens (Mica and Eden) and with my two grown daughters living nearby. 

What Other Therapists Have Said

Check out what others have to say about working with me:

“Betsy has a way of infusing heart into everything she does, while at the same time being fiercely authentic. Her passion for substance abuse and mental health is unmatched. Having Betsy as a supervisor afforded me a glimpse into how to navigate the complex world of substance abuse and mental health. Working with substance abuse can be overwhelming because addiction isn’t rational and doesn’t always make sense. With Betsy’s guidance I developed more confidence and comfort in trusting my ability to treat both substance abuse and mental health. My time spent with Betsy was a privilege and I highly recommend anyone who has the opportunity to take advantage of what she has to offer. ” Justin S. LICSW, LADC

“During my time working with Betsy, I have appreciated how easy she is to talk with.  She has a wealth of knowledge and experience, yet explains information in a way that is easy to understand and easy to apply to my clients.  I left our consultation with several ideas about how to move forward with clients and address concerns I was unsure how to handle.  Her experience, knowledge and the time she shares with you are worth so much!”

-Veronica G.L.  LICSW
