Dr. Austin Beck, LAMFT

Dr. Austin Beck believes that individuals, couples, and families thrive when they are connected to who they are and know how to bond with those they love. Individuals tend to flourish when they are surrounded by relationships where stability, security, and opportunities for connection can be found. Dr. Beck believes that his role as a therapist is to develop a relationship with his clients that will allow them to look inward and access the full range of their emotions. In turn he will facilitate experiences that encourage personal understanding so his clients can more fully connect and share with those most important in their life. Dr. Beck utilizes his advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a research-based treatment shown to facilitate repair and increase intimacy, as a means of guiding couples, individuals, and families so that they can not only survive, but thrive in all aspects of life.

Looking inward, addressing the scars from ones’ past, and living in such a way that lets others see who you are are all acts of courage. Walking the path towards an authentic and congruent life can be a lonely one at times. While therapy can never replace the meaningful relationships that develop organically with those around us, it can provide a space to explore and discover without the threat of disappointment or abandonment. Dr. Beck’s goal is to become obsolete in your life; he’ll be here for as long as you need him, but his goal is for his clients to feel like they are strong enough to do this on their own.
