"Ritual with Betty is like jet-fuel for therapy." -- M.W. 


Hi! I'm Betty... 

I work with people in transition to create personally meaningful, memorable, and empowering rituals.  

After 10 years at the George Lucas Educational Foundation, I studied rituals and rites of passage at the Spirituality Mind Body Institute at Columbia University's Teachers' College. 

In 2020, I was awarded a Mira Fellowship to develop this work into the Resilience Through Ritual model. 

I would love to hear from you and explore how I might be able to help with your transitions! Please reach out for a free 30-minute consultation


this is my process...

The Resilience Through Ritual (RTR) model centers each client's personal symbols and culture, so it is effective for people of all faiths and no faith at all. 

RTR combines archetypal ritual structures with evidence-based practices from 

  • positive psychology

  • mindfulness

  • growth mindset

  • flow states

  • neuropsychology

  • design thinking, and

  • archetypal psychology 

The complete process usually takes between two weeks and three months.  (Youth initiations are longer.)


and these are my services.

1:1 rite of passage coaching 

Together we will create a ritual to help you navigate any transition with clarity and purpose.  

Group rituals  I work with organizations and communities to create meaningful rituals for group transitions. 

Rituals and workshops 

Online and in-person. 


I am an experienced and passionate speaker!


I consult with organizations seeking to understand ritual and rites of passage. 

Why should we initiate young people, you ask?
