And, some more testimonials…
As an artist and kids book designer, I thought I knew my inner child well enough. But Betty helped me actually speak to that child as I would hope I or anyone would speak to any child: with acceptance and compassion. She facilitated a new way of framing who I thought I was as a child, helping me see my judgmental tendencies with an immediate and expansive clarity.
This one session with Betty gave me insight I could harness right away in my adult life, and I am so grateful. I highly recommend Betty to anyone seeking ways to find light and joy in who they are, and who they are growing to be, at any age.

In one hour, Betty helped me unearth truths about my childhood no amount of conventional therapy ever touched. Simply describing photographs of myself as a baby and toddler was unexpectedly powerful. Betty’s deceptively simple and gentle approach yielded life-changing insights into my emotional strengths and weaknesses. I gifted my daughter, who had just had a baby and was struggling, a session with Betty and she too reported amazing results.

After working with Betty in her coaching workshop, I discovered with her help that I was a creative, strong, spirited young girl. Her coaching enhanced my curiosity and provided wisdom and insight. I am grateful for this discovery and coaching. There are many ways to paint and feel the warm light from an open window. Thank you, Betty.

From the outside, I’m a millennial dad with a great career and family. But I always carry my inner child with me. In coaching, it’s like rewriting the script of our story in my head. Now, I’m taking more risks and putting myself out there. I’m more present in how I deal with my kids, relationships and work.
Instead of being this scared, only child of a poor, working mom, I’m taking ownership by reframing the story. I’ve changed how I communicate with my wife. Before, I would shut down by telling myself fake stories about how our conversations would go – before they even happened! But coaching has allowed me to open up so that she can see my vulnerability. I’m also opening up a little bit more socially.
I coach with Betty every week. I’m learning daily tools for figuring out my own emotional safety. We get to the root of things. Coaching is a wonderful place for my inner child to into a different, adult version of myself.

And she adds to that background extensive teaching experience, ESL training and coaching skills. Her teaching evaluations are consistently outstanding. Students praise her ability to teach them new skills as well as her empathetic and enthusiastic support. She also relates especially well to a diverse group of students from the U.S and internationally. Betty also often shares her teaching wisdom with other professors.
