Credentials: Elizabeth S. (Beth) Arnold is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC) in Austin, Texas. 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.
Beth has sharpened her use of Enneagram skills for counseling and coaching by participating in more than 100 hours of interactive trainings with Beatrice Chestnut and Uranio Paes at the International Enneagram Association-accredited CP Enneagram Academy. She has also taken IEA-accredited interactive courses with Enneagram thought leaders Russ Hudson and Tom Condon.
Background: Beth Arnold has been a counselor and coach in private practice since 2003.
For six and a half years Beth worked as a career counselor for the University of Texas at Austin Career Exploration Center (now known as Texas Career Engagement). 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.
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Beth is trained and experienced with the psychological counseling issues confronting individuals experiencing challenging career and life situations, such as:
Unlike coaches who are not uniformly regulated, Beth's license (LPC) and certification (NCC) demand strict adherence to a code of ethics and uniform standards requiring supervised training and on-going professional development.
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 and life coaches who are not Licensed Professional Counselors are not so restricted.
