NAWBO Houston: Member Spotlight Bea Armstrong
We all wear many hats, and that is certainly true of Bea Armstrong. Even in her work life, there isn’t just one chapeau. For nearly 30 years, she has been a licensed psychotherapist in private practice. Until two years ago, her practice was in Campbell, California (near San Jose) – where she saw an average of 40 patients per week.
In January of 2015, she pulled up stakes and moved to Houston to “retire.” And to be near a certain gentleman. Her retirement consists of doing psychotherapy online with approximately 20 patients per week. She is also co-founder five years ago of the Therapy Marketing Institute, a marketing education platform for mental health and wellness professionals that offers weekly webinars.
And, last September, she launched “BReal ECards,” an online greeting card company, which she’s going to tell you about today.
A world traveler, voracious reader, former newspaper journalist, and very avid San Francisco Giants baseball fan, Bea is proudest of another hat she wears with the title “Mima.” That was bestowed on her by her now 8-year-old granddaughter, who lives in St. Petersburg, Russia, with Bea’s son, Sean, and daughter-in-law, Svetlana.
