"I see my role as a therapist as a sacred trust. To be invited into the deep catacombs of one's heart and serve as a container holding space for the emotions of one's life experience is an honor to be a part of. I engage in this work because I believe in the worth, inherent strength, and wisdom of each soul. I know healing is possible when given the tools, supportive space, and time to do so."
Bethany received a Masters of Social at Brigham Young University in 2012 and became an LCSW in January of 2015.
