Founder — Creative Director — LPC-S

Beth Clardy Lewis


won’t present this as some grand interviewing process.  I won’t write in third person as if to suggest someone else is writing about me. I am going to write down, straight up, where I’ve been, and where I find myself now.

My family of origin, as we therapists love to say, or the family with whom I was raised, are a colorful bunch of self-motivated, highly opinionated, strongly communicative, deliberately rebellious, outside-of-the-box thinking humans. I come from a divorced home, though my parents stayed married (loosely said) till I was 17.

While my family was fighting their demons, I dove headfirst into a music scene in Deep Ellum, in Dallas, TX. That scene introduced me to friends I still have today. It led me to experiences I still use today to help others and allowed me to play bass guitar and sing and write songs with many exceptional musicians. I am proud that I am part of several albums, singles, compilations, a couple of coffee table books, and many photos taken in Deep Ellum and beyond during a time when original rock music was fluent and appreciated.

Somewhere during my rock band chapter, I met another musician. We married and had a daughter, who is now a musician, photographer, and artist in her own right. When pregnant with her, I left the music scene and went to get my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Texas at Dallas. I was 31. After my undergraduate degree, I went for my master’s degree in Family Counseling at Texas Wesleyan University. My daughter was never far from me. My husband and I would eventually divorce.

After my graduate degree that included gaining state licensure, I received the opportunity to do some radio spots as an “on-air therapist” with some professional peers from my past music life, who also happened to be on air radio personalities.  They were greatly intrigued by my dramatic change of life direction.

I opened my private family therapy practice, as well as a modest local art gallery, and began my life as I now know it. I no longer play music because my creative lens is used every day as I eat, sleep, and breathe my therapy practice, our blog, and our podcast. I am an author of my first published self-help book, with on-line therapy courses and more self-help books to come.

I also spend my time speaking with my daughter who is in New York studying art with spectacular artists in one of the nation’s best art schools, Parsons School of Design in The New School.

And now that my family of origin (myself included) have fought our demons, we remain a colorful bunch of self-motivated, highly opinionated, strongly communicative, deliberately rebellious, outside-of-the-box thinking humans. With all of this, I come to you, as a therapist. I look very forward to meeting you.
