More about me

Licensing: Psy.D., ADHD-CCSP, CCATP
Years in Practice: 20
State: MD

My interest in psychology dates back to my high school years (1980’s anyone?), leading me to become a Doctor of Clinical Psychology in 1992 and a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Maryland in 1993. While the field of mental health has experienced a mix of challenges and exciting advances over the past 25 years, establishing a collaborative relationship and building upon an individual’s strengths have always been mainstays of my approach to working with clients. Specific to theoretical orientation, I draw upon cognitive behavioral techniques, mindfulness, and Positive Psychology approaches.

Areas of clinical interest for me include the influence of physical health upon mental well-being and counseling approaches that leverage the understanding of neurology and brain function in choosing therapeutic techniques. I have specialty training in anxiety and stress management, depression, and coping with the impact of attention deficit disorders (ADHD). Additionally, I have significant experience working with individuals with blindness or a visual impairment and parents of children with special needs.

Thanks for your time and please reach out if you believe working with me would be a good fit.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Very Cordial and Awesome Person! Really helped manage my anxiety

Feb 01, 2023


Dr. Bethea was absolutely wonderful to work with. I have worked with numerous therapists, and she helped me make the most progress by far

So far it has been a very good experience

I was completely new to the idea of receiving therapy due to anxiety and panic attacks I had been suffering from. The first therapist I was put in contact with (not Dr. Bethea) was not productive and left me feeling a bit helpless. After Betterhelp support let me know that we could switch the therapist, in came Dr. Bethea and it could not have been a more night and day shift. She was professional, polite, an excellent listener and ready to give pertinent advice to address my specific situation. I would recommend Dr. Bethea to anybody that's having anxiety issues.

Dr. Bethea and I have just started working together but I feel like she is helping me down an important path. I immediately felt like she would help me find my way to a healthier life. I never expected this level of quality in an on-line service.

For my first session it went really well. Dr. Bethea made me feel really comfortable with discussing my issues with her, it was definitely a no judgement zone. Excited for my next session with her.

Dr. Bethea listens, she is engaged, she hones in on possible issues and moves on from those not material. She provides techniques for breathing, staying calm, and bettering oneself. She has been a wonderful support so far and I look forward to our sessions.
