Emotion-Focused Couples, Individual, & Pre-Marital Therapy

Holistic Psychotherapy that Supports the Whole Person. My approach to treatment is to understand and explore the depth of the psyche, to allow for integration, and a sense of well-being.

Meet Bethany Sala

I am a licensed psychotherapist specializing in couples therapy and working with individuals desiring to better understand themselves in relationship. I approach the therapeutic relationship with compassion and expertise.

I am trained in the lasted neuroscience of adult attachment and somatic (soma relating to the body) based interventions. I help clients understand how to regulate their emotions, communicate their needs, integrate nervous system dysregulation, improve their ability to tolerate difficult emotions, and build happy, connected lives.

Care For Yourself

Taking time to care for yourself is important. Psychotherapy provides a place to nurture yourself.



Fill up with breath and allow the belly to be soft and the chest to expand.


Allow the belly to draw inward and the chest to release.



Taking deep breaths helps to calm and soothe the nervous system.
