Betsy Kurtz, LCSW-C, CDP, CMDCP


Betsy is a dynamic, dedicated social worker who has spent 100% of her career working with older people. Her ‘career’ began at age 6 with weekly visits to her great grandmother in the assisted living attending to the hair, nail and socialization needs of the other ladies in the facility. Since that time, she obtained degrees in sociology and social work, specializing in working with people with cognitive impairments. Her strengths lie in gaining fast, trustworthy rapport with her clients and their families and having a vast knowledge of the health care system and options and processes available to older people.

Betsy can assist you in better understanding the challenges of you or your loved one and guide you in planning for the future based on your personalized wishes and desires. Aging isn’t for sissies but it isn’t for suffering. Taking care of your mental health is equally as important as investing in your physical and financial health. Using concise, ACT based therapeutic interventions as well as reminiscence and psychodynamic therapies, Betsy can support you in creating a better, happier you in your elder years.
