My name is Bette G Pounds. People find me easy to talk to. I have extensive training, as well as an abundance of life experience. I like to clarify and focus quickly on patients' personal goals. I believe that moments of peace can be achieved at point "A" while progress continues toward point "B".
I work with adults and couples. I specialize in all types of relationships including those that we have with our work, our hobbies, our family, friends and romances, our spirituality, intellect and body.I use an eclectic, holistic approach and together we will find the metaphors that you live by.
Sometimes insight is not sufficient for change and so I will also help you to take actions to achieve your goals.
I see adults and couples for 45-minute psychotherapy sessions.
I work with a variety of issues including:
Depression, Anxiety and Panic Disorders, Relationship issues, LGBT, Addictions and food issues, Performance anxiety, Creativity problems and Stress Management
My fee is based on a sliding-scale.
I am a network provider for several insurance companies including Oxford Health Plans and Empire BlueCross BlueShield. I will also work with other insurances.
My hours are generally: Monday through Thursday: 10:30 AM-9PM, Friday: 10:30AM-6:30PM, Saturday 12:30-5:30PM
Sessions are by appointment only.
