Working with Betsy has been incredibly healing and transformative. Initially I wanted to explore somatic experiencing because I know it has to do with the body and, as a performer, I do well with physical work. Did I know exactly what it was, NO . Betsy has created a space where you can show up just as you are and explore without judgement, which I really need if I am going to try something new. I’ve found myself making shifts on a level I can see in real time, but also I can feel myself being able to expand my capacity to deal with things in my day to day life in ways I never thought were possible.-Crystal
Plus Betsy is lovely! And fun. And attentive! And makes sure you honor boundaries you didn’t even know you had! Book with Betsy the end.
I started working with Betsy to help me practice experiencing a fuller range of my emotions without collapsing underneath them. I have gotten that and so much more. Through Betsy’s eyes and reflection, I’m meeting a deeper version of myself that feels bold, strong and sensorially alive. I keep thinking how much I like this person — and by that I mean ME. Although I quite like Betsy too 🙂 I walk away from my meetings with her feeling bigger, truer, and with a toolbox to help me navigate being me in this wacky world we find ourselves in. It’s some of the best time I spend each week.-Becky
Before working with Betsy, I described myself as someone who lived in my head; I rejected my body as part of my self-concept, and I struggled immensely to even put language to how I felt. Our work together is helping me face the challenge—and invitation—to live into and out of the fullness of my embodied being.– Naina
Betsy is gifted as a guide, teacher, coach, and partner on this journey. Every week I am in awe of how much she is able to observe over a screen. She gives me her undivided attention and is attuned to the most minuscule motions of my body. She takes in things that I’d never previously noticed and then helps bring them into my awareness. Betsy has helped me better understand my patterns—when and why I dissociate or freeze, what my coping mechanisms are. But her goal is not to change me; rather, she helps me accept and build curiosity around who and how I am. Through our work together, I’ve come a long way in terms of my somatic awareness, what I am able to feel consciously, and my capacity to set and maintain boundaries.
I love working with Betsy because she is extremely patient and nonjudgmental. She tailors each session to exactly what I need at that moment and never puts pressure on me to go at a pace that isn’t right for my system. Betsy is acutely sensitive to what I can handle, gently asking questions and encouraging me to go deeper into my sensations while always ready to pull back or seamlessly change the subject so I feel safe. While she makes it look effortless, I know she has to juggle so much internally such that I can make progress without getting over-activated. I’m so grateful for how she navigates each session around achieving that balance.
While Somatic Experiencing can be difficult, especially for people who are not used to being present in and with their bodies, Betsy will hold space for you to feel seen, held, and safe exactly as you are. She has a generous heart and an unshakeable sense of integrity, and both shine through in her every action and word.
Thank you, Betsy, for your warmth, sincerity, and care! I look forward to continuing on this path with you!

Her work is filling a need I did not even realize I had.
She is so easy to work with—Betsy is kind, understanding and supportive. She intuitively picks up on subtle cues from my face/body reactions and is a master of a dance between emotions and the physical that most of us would miss.
Betsy is a perfect fit for me; it’s easy to find out if she’s a fit for you too.

It is a joy to meet Betsy every week for our SE™ session together. Her empathy and skill makes talking about the stress in my life and and learning how to manage it with SE a very affirming practice. Betsy’s sense of humour and generosity shine through and she has a knack of explaining complex concepts in a way that’s easy to understand. I highly recommend working with Betsy.-nadia
