Welcome to Counseling Concepts

Betty Werner, LCSW


Following a twenty  year career in business and marketing, I pursued my degree and career in  therapy and counseling.  I also do life coaching, and animal assisted  therapy with my two Labradors, Frankie and Zoey. 

Having survived the  loss of my 18 year old son Todd in 1993, I was the professional advisor  to the Bereaved Parents of the USA for eight years, supporting the  organizations mission to grieving parents.  In therapy I bring the  unique experience of being a grieving mother along with being a grief  counselor.  I am also a national spokesperson for Womenheart the  national coalition of women with heart disease. 

I have been in  private practice for over ten years, and I am priveledged to walk with  my clients on their journey.  I use cognitive behavioral therapy,  solution focused therapy and an eclectic mix of therapies based on the  client’s needs.  Having had therapy myself over my lifetime, I find that  it is enormously helpful in validating our strengths and looking at  problems through new eyes.

                                                ADD and ADHD, Anxiety, Adjustment disorders, depression, 

                                                Marital and family issues, Adult grief and child loss,

I look forward to accompanying you on your journey.
