Betsy Pierce, M.A.
Office: 409 Potter Hall
Licensed Psychological Associate
I received my MA in Clinical Psychology from WKU in 2000, which proves that it is never too late to go back to school! As Outreach Coordinator, I help schedule and provide programs to the campus community. However, most of my time is spent with students for individual counseling, and I have a particular interest in eating disorders. I love reading, gardening, and chocolate, not necessarily in that order, and am a firm believer that we need to laugh about something every day, including ourselves!
I believe counseling means working with each person as an individual, with the goal of discovering what is realistic in terms of change, discovery and problem solving. To me it is essential that we each accept our own humanness, making the same allowances for ourselves that we make for others. While there will always be room for us to grow and improve, most of the time we are doing the best we can. Within that knowledge, we can make healthy changes.
