Betsy Koelzer - The Clearing

Betsy Koelzer

Co-founder
VP of Operations

Betsy Koelzer is a co-founder and brings to The Clearing the practical, real-life experience as someone who has struggled with substance abuse. Her recovery was the inspiration and foundation of The Clearing’s successful Program.

Having actually been to traditional treatment twice, and loathing both internments with an undiminished intensity, Betsy is uncommonly motivated to bring this Program forward to fellow survivors.

Betsy also has years of counseling experience and completed the program at the University of Santa Monica.

Irreverent yet spiritual, Betsy blends this into a unique pattern of counseling that is gentle, authentic, refreshing and healing.

In her free time, Betsy enjoys collecting speeding tickets, telling tall tales, reading, enjoying her good friends and watching The Rifleman.
