Credentials:  Beth Arnold is a Licensed Professional Counselor and National Certified Counselor in Austin Texas, who is credentialed as a Master Career Counselor by the National Career Development Association.  She has a Master of Arts degree in Counseling from St. Edward's University, as well as two other degrees from the University of Texas at Austin.


Background:  Beth Arnold has been a career counselor in private practice since 2004.  For six and a half years she also worked part-time as a career counselor for the University of Texas Career Exploration Center, now known as the Vick Center for Strategic Advising and Career Counseling. 


In other venues Beth has provided therapy to help individuals and families find resilience and hope in response to a variety of emotional and psychological challenges.  She is also a seasoned career changer who held a variety of management roles in different government settings for more than 20 years before becoming a counselor.


Beth has extensive training and experience with interpreting the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and the Strong Interest Inventory assessments.  She has facilitated more than 40 interpretation workshops and has individually interpreted more than 250 assessments for adolescents and adults of all ages.


Beth also has extensive training and experience with sand tray meditation. After being formally trained, mentored and supervised by highly proficient sand tray therapists, Beth attended nearly 100 hours of workshops and received 15 hours of one-on-one consultation with teaching members of the International Society of Sandplay Therapy (ISST) and Sandplay Therapists of America (STA). She wrote a 20-page paper based on original research that was accepted by a panel of ISST/STA teaching members. She also completed her own Sandplay process. 


Beth offers sand tray meditation to clients who feel stuck. This playful, nonverbal approach to addressing career fears and burnout identifies and resolves inner obstacles that are obstructing movement forward. It also uncovers hidden strengths.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Beth is trained and experienced with the psychological counseling issues confronting individuals experiencing career transitions, such as:

  • How career affects a person's growth and development; quality of life; emotional, physical and spiritual health; and family and personal networks
  • How to confront and resolve blocks that prevent individuals from being able to activate their personal gifts and talents in career and the world of work


As a Master Career Counselor, Beth offers:

  • Expertise about careers and the world of work
  • A structured understanding of the vast number of roles, work environments, and fields available to  career seekers through the use of career assessments and other tools
  • Insights into how the world of work is changing and how to jump into that world efficiently and effectively to launch or relaunch your career
  • Focus on what is most significant among all the competing career opportunities and how to create new career opportunities
  • Clarity about how to find effective training and education that will enhance career opportunities and be worth the investment of time and money


Unlike career coaches who are not uniformly regulated, Beth's licenses and certifications demand strict adherence to a code of ethics and uniform standards requiring supervised training, on-going professional development and specific experience in counseling, career development, assessment and interpretation, and use of occupational information. 


Moreover, professional ethics require licensed counselors to make client confidentiality paramount.  Because social media reviews are not confidential and the request for such reviews could subject clients to "undue influence" (American Counseling Association Code of Ethics 2014 C.3.b), licensed counselors do not solicit these kinds of reviews from current or former clients.  Please note: Career professionals who are not Licensed Professional Counselors are not so restricted.
