Betsie Schoedel (they/them) is dedicated to creating a safe and therapeutic alliance with all their clients. Betsie fosters a healing space with each client by developing trust and rapport over time. While healing is not linear, Betsie supports each client with identified goals to promote emotional and psychological well-being.
From an unconditional positive regard, Betsie aims to help clients move from shame to self-compassion and grace. Betsie draws on intersectional, queer, and feminist works to challenge harmful social norms that negatively impact self-esteem, worthiness, and sense of belonging. Ultimately, Betsie believes each person has inherent worth and value and hopes to be part of the process to foster that same belief in the self.
Betsie has experience working with diverse clients ages 14+ who are survivors of intimate partner violence, sexual abuse, and violence. Betsie knows it is never the fault of the survivor who has experienced the abuse and has skills in EMDR, TF-CBT, Brainspotting, CPT, and other modalities to help survivors address post-trauma symptoms.
Betsie received their BA in Psychology and Art from Alma College (2014), Master in Social Work (MSW) from Grand Valley State University (2018), and is currently attending Michigan State University to pursue their Ph.D. in Social Work. In their downtime, Betsie enjoys being a nerd watching anime, playing D&D, and spending quality time with their spouse and furbabies.
