About Me

Hi- I'm Betsie and you're a Mom or Dad who's landed here for a very good reason! You've tried managing your child's problem...and things are getting worse!  Know what? I created A Mindful Approach just for your child! Stress, anxiety and sadness are treated with highly effective techniques studied and applied in my own life and in the lives of thousands of children & teens for more than thirty years.

Did you know that treating children is altogether different than treating adults? It requires a keen understanding of child and adolescent development and behavior, especially when it comes to how the brain works. Patience and a passion for working with young people are absolute musts!

Reach out to me for help and feel secure knowing your child is in capable, caring, compassionate hands. I'll return your call  by text or phone within 24-48 hours, no exceptions!

Is your child having academic or behavioral problems at school? Perhaps (s)he lacks the social skills needed to get along with peers and make friends? I can help with that, too!


Wondering whether my services are covered by Insurance? Here's my view: Insurance can be a great thing...automobile, life, homeowners and health are vital to families. However, with rising deductibles, premiums and co-pays AND limited coverage for mental health conditions, it's problematic. Did you know that Practitioners must adhere to strict guidelines when it comes to diagnosing and treating your child- ones you may not agree with? Here's a side by side comparison of what you can expect from practitioners who accept Insurance and what your child receives at A Mindful Approach. 

Does your child or teen...

Have a quick temper?

Lack self-confidence?

Struggle on the autism spectrum?

Display a short attention span?

Worry constantly?

Have academic or socialization problems?

I Can Help Now!


Your son/daughter will be treated with a combination of techniques to soften stress, calm fears & ease anxiety including: breath awareness, bibliotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dream interpretation, emotional freedom technique (EFT/Tapping), guided imagery, journaling & The Sedona Method of releasing undesireable emotions.

Your child will gain a sense of control over thoughts & feelings, instead of feeling controlled by them.


You'll receive a reassuring review of your child's progress at the end of each month.

You know, timing is everything- and the best time to treat your child's problem is early, when symptoms first begin to surface. The solutions are here and the time is now!


In Person Treatment

Children in Cleveland, Ohio are treated in my Therapy Room, a soothing sanctuary of comfort conducive to therapeutic outcomes. It's an "allergy friendly" environment. No mold, no pets, no perfumes!

Your child can generally be seen within two weeks of your first call

Convenient hours include Sundays

I give MY best so children can become THEIR best!

If your son or daughter has been in "talk therapy" for six months or more and isn't feeling better, consider A Mindful Approach. Marked improvement using Mindfulness-based therapy often occurs in children for whom talk therapy alone hasn't brought lasting results.
