To Betsy (she/they), mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being exist in relationship to and impact each other. Also, well-being is affected by the relationships we have with other people, more-than-human beings (animals), society/culture, our environments, our past experiences/trauma, and more. This perspective began developing for Betsy in childhood through personal experiences and has grown throughout her life. For instance, as a kiddo, Betsy discovered that depending on the kind of discomfort she was experiencing, going outside and dancing, practicing martial arts, singing, journaling, or spending quality time with more-than-human beings or loved ones would help her feel better. Then, as a teen and young adult, Betsy worked as a caregiver and began developing a compassionate understanding of common challenges families (and individuals in them) face. She also worked in research labs where she observed and experienced such great benefits from mindfulness-based techniques that she postponed her plans for grad school to study the yogic roots of mindfulness. For over a decade, she learned, innovated, and taught, integrations of yoga (ERYT-500), psychology (BA), nature/body-based (Wellround, Yoga Tune Up, & Thai Yoga Certified), anti-oppression, trauma-informed practices to groups and individuals in the Pacific NW and internationally. She is now completing her last year in Lewis & Clark’s Masters in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy and Ecotherapy programs. As a student therapist, Betsy aims to support her clients in creating and achieving their well-being goals with as much ease as possible. Using non-judgmental awareness, Betsy’s therapeutic approach focuses on healing internal and external relationships.
