I can help you get unstuck if you can commit to taking action every time you leave my office. Over time, even small steps in the right direction can lead to big change.

Therapy is only effective if you use what you’re learning to break bad habits and turn insight into action. Get the help you need so you can live with greater passion, purpose and direction. Stop settling for less, or you’ll likely get more of the same.

A note from Betsy: When you're really struggling, you need more than a good listener. You need someone who can sort through the details fast, and get you moving in a healthier direction as quickly as possible.

—Ask good questions
—Notice what others missed
—Care about your well-being
—Insist you do your homework
—Make each step as easy as possible ​

—Sit and nod
—Agree with you all the time
—Avoid difficult topics
—Work harder than you do
—Perform miracles very often

Once we identify the patterns of behavior and thinking that are causing you problems, we'll come up with a plan for how to change them. Each time we meet, we'll talk about what's working and what isn't, and I'll give you concrete tools you can take home and practice with between sessions, so you're always making progress--even when I'm not around.

Office locations: From November 1st through April 30, I see clients in Atwater Village (Los Angeles). We can meet at my home office, or at a nearby cafe. From May 1st thru October 31st, I see clients in my home office in Minnetonka. Online relationship consulting worldwide, year round.

Fees: Most therapists see clients for 45-50 minute sessions. I do not. My fees are based on a full 60-minute or a 90-minute session. Clients may choose a 60-minute session for $150, or a 90-minute session for $225. All sessions with 2 or more clients are 90-minutes. Payment is due at the time of service. I do not accept insurance, although some clients have succeeded at getting their insurance carrier to cover a percentage of their therapy. I accept PayPal, VISA and MasterCard.
