Overwhelmed by thoughts or emotions

Anxious about, well, too many things to list

Ready to put in the work to move forward

Services at Brite

Traditional Therapy

Traditional therapy is weekly or biweekly individual work with a therapist. Get to know yourself better. Identify and understand patterns (the good and the bad) that impact you. Learn skills needed to maximize your ability to live your life with more balance.

Time-Limited Therapy

You don’t have to solve every problem in your life to feel better in a meaningful way. Want to address a specific issue or goal or develop a set of skills? Time-limited therapy (sometimes also called intensive therapy) may be for you.

Therapy and Consultation for Therapists

Therapists are the ultimate change-makers and Brite is here for you. A significant percentage of Brite clients are therapists themselves. Beth approaches therapy for therapists from a whole-person perspective, working to help therapists align their many roles (and address their unique stressors). Beth also provides ethics and treatment planning consultation for peers.

Speaking and Training for Organizations

Brite helps groups large and small build mentally healthy cultures. Beth provides speaking and training services on a variety of mental health topics such as stress management, positive communication, and the impact of trauma on individuals. She focuses on making the experience enjoyable – and actually usable – for her audiences.

About Me

Hi, I’m Beth.

Hi. I am Beth Burkstrand-Reid. Clinical Social Worker. Mom. Dog rescuer. Native Midwesterner. Hockey fan. I laugh loudly, listen to bad pop music, and love documentaries. I am action-oriented, direct, and optimistic – but also realistic. I believe everyone has superpowers. (Really.) Sometimes people just need help finding them and figuring out how to use them.
