About me

Welcome! My name is Betty. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Tennessee with over 30 years of experience working as a career counselor, personal counselor, career coach, and life coach. I have worked with clients ranging in age from high school students to retirees across a wide range of concerns, including:

• Personal counseling, specializing in anxiety, depression, life changes/transition, ADHD, grief, anger management, low self esteem, relationship issues, abuse, and dealing with a loss. I also have experience helping clients deal with family/relationship issues and recovery from emotional abuse.
• Career counseling, career transition, career challenges, workplace conflicts, self-assessment, career exploration, career planning, resume design, job search strategies, adaptation to a new role, and follow-up.
• College counseling and transition through choosing a major, choosing a college, and assisting in the application process.
• Administering and interpreting formal assessments for better understanding personality and interest preferences, interpersonal dynamics/group dynamics, career planning, and choosing a college major.

I am a Board Certified Tele Mental Health Provider, Nationally Certified Counselor, Nationally Certified Career Counselor, Master Career Counselor, Certified Career Counselor, Global Career Development Facilitator Trainer, Private Practice Owner, Career Transition Trainer, Group Facilitator, and retired professor/university Career Center Director.

I also have served as an expert witness for court decisions for wrongful termination and divorce proceedings, as well as trained new career development specialists in Facilitating Career Development for universities, corporations, and Federal Job Programs.

My counseling style is person-centered, supportive, and interactive. I believe all persons should be treated with respect and compassion, and I believe that labels and diagnoses are stigmatizing, limiting, and do not tell a person’s whole story. We begin where you are, and together we will construct a plan to get you to where you want to be. My role is to support you and facilitate the change you desire to see in your life. My approach combines client-centered, cognitive-behavioral, existential, and solution-focused counseling. Additionally, I have completed special training in serving the military and military families.

I look forward to working with you and tailoring a treatment plan to meet your unique goals and needs!
