Beth Manns

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate

Beth is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate (LCSWA) in North Carolina. She received her undergraduate degree in Psychology & Sociology from New England College in Henniker, NH and her Master of Social Work degree from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Beth has past experience working with adolescents in residential and inpatient units as well as experience working with adults and older adults who suffer from chronic illness and/or are navigating end of life issues. Her clinical specialties and interests include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, parenting, grief, loss of a partner, end of life, coping with chronic illness, and trauma.

In therapy with Beth, clients appreciate that they are in charge of their goals and progress and are regarded as experts on themselves. She works to create a safe and calming environment through the use of compassion, validation, non-judgment, insight, connection, and even humor. She is passionate about helping clients learn how to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Sessions are geared towards helping you identify and sit with your feelings while exploring unhealthy patterns that you would like to alter to bring balance into your life. Some things you may expect to encounter throughout this process include examining values, exploring connections between emotions, thoughts, and behaviors, learning skills to regulate emotions and tolerate distressing times, staying in the present moment, and how to communicate effectively with others.

Beth believes that therapeutic outcomes are strongly rooted in the relationship between client and therapist, making therapy a collaborative journey. She takes a person-centered approach while pulling from evidenced-based treatment models including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Mindfulness-Based therapies in order to treat a wide variety of psychological issues in adolescents, adults and older adults. When Beth is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and 2 children, going on walks, gardening, bird-watching and enjoying nature.
