Martin Beck, CSW
Contemporary society can be isolating and alienating. We all experience difficulties that leave emotional scars. Even our successes come with stress and anxiety. When our energy is focused on achievement and perfection, we lose or deny our authentic selves in that striving. If compelled to live outside our actual values, we may lose our sense of meaning or purpose. I provide individual therapy for adults navigating life transitions or coping with work, family, or health challenges. I have training and experience working with clients who’ve experienced trauma. My focus allows me to help clients develop healthy relational boundaries.
At Martin Beck Counseling, My therapeutic approach is based on existential-humanistic philosophy, grief work, attachment theory, and mindfulness skills. In my practice, I use techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based interventions, and existential and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
The therapeutic experience is a journey with the client on a unique path created together. So, I often learn from my clients while working collaboratively with them. My goal is to be open and non-judgmental to foster self-acceptance. I have an authentic concern and remain genuinely curious about my clients without the pretense of clinical distance.
Martin Beck uses techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), The Gottman Method for Couples Therapy, and Radically Open Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (RO DBT).
