Betty is so excited to have joined the Life in Motion team, and we are blessed to have her expertise. Betty is a caring and motivating therapist.  Betty spent 30 years as an RN. Instead of relaxing when she retired she went back to school to become a Marriage and Family Therapist. She feels God has called her to continue helping others.

Betty strives to move her clients toward their goals and guide them to a new and more fulfilled future. Betty has worked extensively with school-age children and their parents to improve parenting skills and coping skills to deal with everyday life.  During the last 5 years, she has enjoyed seeing people recover from trauma, and has been trained in Trauma-Focused CBT, and is currently seeking certification in racial-based trauma therapy.. The therapy models that she works with most are EFT, CBT, MI and Family systems. 

Betty has been married 39 years to Jeff, "who is truly my soul mate.  No one has quite figured me out, but he has gotten closer than anyone else".


In her spare time, Betty loves to spend time exploring the Black Hills of South Dakota where her son, his wife, and Betty's beautiful grandchildren live. Her daughter stayed close and they often like to walk and talk about their day. She loves her church where she is the Associate Pastor.  

Whether it is spending time with family or working with those in her church community, everything Betty does she does with love and grace. This includes the way she works with each and every client. We are blessed to have her on our team and hope that you will enjoy working with her to achieve your goals.
