About Beth

Copyright © Elizabeth Arnold. All rights reserved.

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.

Background:  Beth Arnold has been a career counselor and career coach in private practice since 2004.  For six and a half years she also worked 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.


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 highly experienced specialist in Career Counseling, 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 inventories 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
  • 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 license (LPC) and certification (NCC) 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.
