Betty Eastman

Betty’s decision to become a therapist was very personal — it had to do with her father’s reaction after spending two tours in the Vietnam War A communications major in college, Betty decided that what she really wanted to do was to go to graduate school to help people. It was while she working on her master’s degree in social work that she learned about PTSD, and she realized that was what her father was suffering from when she was a little girl. “I could have helped him if I had known about PTSD then.” Now she feels the most kinship with adolescent girls, which is her specialty. She has been in practice since 1996 and is owner of Betty Eastman, LCSW, and Associates, Inc. Betty’s perspective on therapy is that all of life is united and interrelated through a connection of body, mind and spirit.
