Beth Root

Beth Root is a Master’s level intern at Capella University, studying Marriage and Family Therapy. Change happens as people are seen and heard; Beth’s goal is to help clients tell their stories, feel understood, and empower them to make the changes they want to make. Everyone has a voice to be heard, whether they come into therapy as an individual, a couple, or a family.

Therapeutic Approach

Beth takes a strength-based approach to therapy. When in the middle of hardship, it sometimes is not easy to see your successes and triumphs, but Beth’s use of Solution-Focused and Narrative Therapy can help you know that you already have a foundation to stand on. She also understands that she is not the expert in your story – you are! She works to facilitate an atmosphere of trust so that you can feel comfortable sharing your story with her.

Marriage and Family Therapy

If everyone has a story, it is understandable that relationships between couples and family members can sometimes become strained. Beth can help couples and families navigate their stories together so that there is harmony. She helps family members understand one another’s perceptions and then work together to face their problems.


It can be challenging to admit that you think you need help. Beth’s own experiences in therapy have helped her to be empathetic to these difficulties. Vulnerability is uncomfortable, but she aims to create an atmosphere where you trust her to share your story, as honesty and openness precede change and progression.


Previously, Beth has worked with adolescents in correction centers and understands how hard being a teenager can be. No matter what an individual’s story is, change is possible. For some youth, their experiences can lead them to feel confused, helpless, or angry. This can result in behaviors that are hurtful to themselves and others, trouble in school, depression, or anxiety. Through her empathetic and compassionate approach, Beth can help youth feel understood and empower them to be active participants in their stories, rather than controlled by their feelings and experiences. By working with adolescents, and their families when appropriate, Beth can help children and parents understand and support one another.
