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. When I started in our field I felt confident in my grad school education and life experience. I figured that I knew most of what I needed to know about doing therapy.

In my first year as a therapist I learned quickly that I was missing a large chunk of information. I had clients who were using substances and I realized I had no idea what to do. I had found my way into my own recovery from substances, but I didn’t know how to translate that to my clients.

I spent the following few years learning everything I could from the substance use counselors I worked with. I went to training, I read articles and talked with my clinical supervisor. I was so thankful I was able to learn what I needed to know! I’m excited to bring this information to you so that you can bring more healing and freedom to your clients!

Effects of substance abuse

Betsy has a way of making complex concepts related to trauma, substance abuse, and mental health issues extremely approachable. I have enjoyed learning from her about substance abuse issues since my background is in mental health and trauma work. She makes the learning enjoyable while also helping me to apply these concepts to my work with clients. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I left our consultations 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!

You might be wondering if you know enough
to intervene in your client’s use…

You may not have all the information right now, but you do know your client well. The main reason client’s make progress in therapy is the quality of the relationship with a helping professional. The information is important, but your connection with them is where it all starts.

The Recovery Planning Template will give you information you need to explain each part of the template and why its important. Think of it as a how-to manual for creating recovery plans. You will be the guide, but your client will be the one coming up with ideas to fill out their plan. 

You are not alone, I’ve been there too. We can feel like a fish out of water at first, but that goes away quickly. Our expertise and relationship building skills give us almost everything we need to make this leap. All we need is some information!
