I saw Beth Larsen for a number of visits but finally quit.  Beth Larsen should NOT be a counselor.  She has poor listening skills, and is self absorbed.  She talked more about herself than I wanted to know and seemed to be in the sessions to have me help her with HER problems.  She was arrogant, rude, and snotty.  In many ways she is a dangerous person as she heaps guilt and shame on clients.  I finally went to a good counselor and got the help I needed, but it took months to get over the abusive way Beth Larsen treated me.

I totally agree.  Beth Larsen is more interested in telling you how great she is than helping with your problem.  She ruined my family relationships. I feel SHE needs counseling.  Stay away!

Dr. Larson was compassionate to the entire situation our family was dealing with. Sure her directives were sometimes very difficult but following through and trusting that she knew what she was talking about actually saved our entire family from an extremely traumatic series of events. She is very knowledgeable about a wide range of issues including all the dysfunctional issues families and individuals deal with. She knew when to challenge me to move forward and when I was not ready. I knew if I wanted to move beyond being a victim to being a survivor I needed to go through the tough stuff, after all being a victim was not a place I wanted to stay. So, if you are really looking for change I encourage you to see Dr. Larson. You need to be willing to do the work. You are not going to get better by being coddled and babied. Becoming a survivor was hard work and I would never have taken the steps to become the person I am today had it not been for Beth's encouragement, hard work and at times  insistent pushing. And yes sometimes I was not thrilled when I left because I heard something about myself that I needed to change. Don't enter into a therapeutic relationship if you are not willing to be challenged to change. Also understand that change is not going to feel good. The feel good takes place after the change takes place. I would strongly recommend anyone who desires to better their life and become a stronger individual to take a chance, enter into the relationship knowing it is not going to be all sugary and sweet. Getting to where you are was not exactly a sugary sweet road so don't expect that moving out of the garbage you so much want to and need to leave is going to be a cake walk, it is hard, it is blood, sweat and tears and at times down right stink. If your counselor isn't challenging you to do the tough stuff you are throwing your time and money away!
