Kayla Bettis-Weber, MSW, LCSW
Masters of Social Work and Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Kayla Bettis-Weber graduated with her Masters in Social Work (MSW) in 2008 and has been in clinical practice since. Her experience is within the addiction and mental health fields using individual, family, and group therapy to facilitate insight, empowerment, and change. She sees herself as fortunate to have worked with a wide array of clients, including those struggling with addiction, mental illness, trauma, and domestic violence. Kayla’s passion is helping others help themselves by providing structure, respect, and gentle inquiry to facilitate this process. In addition, she believes strongly in clients holding themselves accountable to become the leaders of their own change process, whether this is to maintain sobriety or create some kind of behavior change. This allows for clients to participate in treatment plans that are individually tailored to best meet the needs presented. Kayla finds a variety of therapeutic modalities intriguing and useful. She always incorporates some aspect of mindfulness into her work with clients, including urging clients to practice a nonjudgmental awareness into particular thought patterns and emotions. She strongly advocates hands-on practice and uses therapy in this way to ensure clients not only understand the philosophy behind the practice, but also feel empowered to use specific techniques independently to tap into the present moment.
Kayla has undergone extensive training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and enjoys the strong behavioral approach to facilitate change. She was trained extensively by Behavioral Tech, LLC and serves as our DBT Program Team Leader. She believes it to be powerful for clients to take a personal initiative in healing, so she helps clients examine their own behavior and identify aspects of it that warrant intervention. The foundation of this therapy is for clients to develop specific coping skills that will better regulate the emotions that lead to self-defeating behavior.
