Mom. Survivor. Advocate.

I am a helper, a mother, and a flawed human being experiencing all the joys, fears and sadness that you do. My lived and professional experience with trauma and loss has evolved into teaching others how to help children cope with adversity.

 

As a psychotherapist I reached people one-on-one, but I soon realized the problem wasn't individual, it was cultural and systemic. I founded Beth Tyson Trauma Consulting, LLC to share my knowledge about children's mental health to a larger audience. My trainings and speaking events educate organizations and institutions about the impact of trauma and how to help children and families who are suffering.

My mother, Joyce, died in her sleep when I was 26. It was a traumatic experience for me that shaped the course of my life. Following this trauma, (and lots of therapy), I knew I wanted to help others who were suffering from the impact of trauma and loss. 

Although my mom's death was the most influential tragedy in my life, I experienced a number of other ambiguous losses as a child that shaped me into a warrior for children in foster, kinship, and adoptive families. 

My professional experience and life challenges fuse together in the education I provide to help the world become trauma-informed and healing-centered.
