She has co-authored a book on the topic with Dr. Craig Blomberg titled, “Effective Generational Ministry.”
In addition to teaching counseling at Denver Seminary, Betsy maintains a counseling and consulting practice in Littleton, Colorado. In her consulting work, Betsy works with organizations, churches, and corporations across the country on topics of generational differences, identity development, and authentic living.
