 Beth's Introduction to Child & Family Counseling Group

I've worked with children and parents since 1984. Much has changed in that time! And, throughout, my philosophy has been to never judge, to always learn, with my best work coming from curiosity, respect and positive regard. We are all changing everyday. Let's direct that change to healing and positive growth.

During COVID, I moved to Sonora, CA in the Sierra foothills with my husband, Kelly Telfer, a professional motorsports artist. I commute to see clients in person two-three times per month. I'm the parent of three young men and grandmother of two adorable babies.
