Beth Westmoreland, MSW, LCSW, CPP is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has spent the last decade working in a variety of settings, helping families deal with unique challenges.
She has experience working with substance use treatment, adult mental health, and child mental health, both in outpatient and community-based settings. While she’s comfortable working with a variety of individuals, she has expertise in working with trauma, children, parenting, depression, anxiety, post-partum issues, and families.
Ms. Westmoreland’s goal is to help you be your best version of yourself. She believes that we all hold the ability to change and grow but that sometimes things in life can become a stumbling block. This could be something from our childhood replaying itself as an adult, a need for increased skills, or a need to have a safe space to gain increased awareness and reflection. While working to support you in gaining new skills, she will always work to understand the root of the issue that brings you in to therapy. It is no small choice to ask for support, and Ms. Westmoreland will work to meet you exactly where you are and will always show up to sessions with her whole self to help you be your best self.
She is currently rostered as a Child Parent Psychotherapist which is an evidenced based practice for children 0-5 and their caregivers. Ms. Westmoreland has spent the past 5 years mastering this model. She works with an identified caregiver and child in a playful and creative manner to foster and nurture a secure attachment while also facilitating healing from any traumatic or difficult experiences.
Ms. Westmoreland is in the process of becoming an EMDR trained therapist, which is an evidence based trauma treatment for adults and children. She utilizes a trauma-informed, developmental, and strengths-based approach, and, based on your needs, can incorporate psychodynamic theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
