Counseling & Consulting
Betsy Sansby, MS, LMFT

Insight is great. But it's not change.

Real change requires action.

 

I can help you get unstuck if you can commit to taking action every time you leave my office. Over time, even small steps in the right direction can lead to big change. Get the help you need to live with greater passion, purpose and direction.      

A note from Betsy: When you're really struggling, you need more than a good listener. You need someone who can sort through the details fast, and get you moving in a healthier direction as quickly as possible.

You can expect me to:

  • Ask good questions
  • Notice what others missed
  • Care about your well-being
  • Insist you do your homework
  • Make each step as easy as possible

Don't expect me to:

  • Sit and nod

  • Agree with you all the time

  • Avoid difficult topics

  • Work harder than you do

  • Perform miracles very often


Once we identify the patterns of behavior and thinking that are causing you problems, we'll come up with a plan for how to change them. Each time we meet, we'll talk about what's working and what isn't, and I'll give you concrete tools you can take home and practice with between sessions, so you're always making progress--even when I'm not around.


Betsy Sansby is a licensed marriage and family therapist with 30+ years of clinical experience. She has appeared in Redbook Magazine, and has been featured in The Ladies' Home Journal.

2 Office locations: Atwater Village, Los Angeles: November thru April Minnetonka, MN-- May thru October. Online relationship consulting worldwide.

Fees: Most therapists see clients for 45-50 minute sessions. I do not. My fees are based on a full 60-minute or a 90-minute session. Clients may choose a 60-minute session for $150, or a 90-minute session for $225. All sessions with 2 or more clients are 90-minutes. Payment is due at the time of service. I do not accept insurance, although some clients have succeeded at getting their insurance carrier to cover a percentage of their therapy. I accept PayPal, VISA and MasterCard.
