Beth Birdwell

LPC Associate

Hi, I'm Beth Birdwell, a Licensed Professional Counselor Associate supervised by Carissa Cano, M.A., LPC-S. I received my Master of Arts in Counseling from St. Edward’s University in 2012, and worked with adolescents in a residential treatment facility, doing group and individual work.

Areas of interest and experience for me include, but are not limited to: depression, anxiety, surviving a borderline parent, career transitions, coparenting, bisexuality and questioning sexuality, grief (particularly from suicide loss), and spirituality growth. Over the years, my life has been touched by a multitude of mental health issues with friends and family: addiction, Borderline Personality Disorder, depression, psychosis and homelessness, suicide, and Bipolar Disorder. I personally understand the pain, confusion and ramifications of having to deal with these issues.

I believe the most important part of the therapeutic relationship is the client feeling seen and understood. Personally, I have found that the most helpful therapeutic experiences involve very straightforward feedback from the therapist, and I strive to do this with my clients.
