Easin M. Beck
Psychotherapist (M.S. MFT), Birth Doula, and Gottman Institute Bringing Baby Home Educator
Welcome! Thank you for visiting. I hope to give you an idea of what it might be like to work together, though of course, the best way to do this is through a brief phone call, which you can schedule by submitting a contact form here.
Clearly, I am a therapist. What is less obvious is that I have also been a client, and I was fortunate to have a great therapist who deeply changed my life. Having been on the other side of the chair (well, computer screen in our case!) I know how it feels to want someone to simply listen and understand you without judgment. Above all else, my goal is to build a positive, supportive relationship with you. Our relationship is the foundation for our work together. I am warm, down-to-earth, and I am genuinely curious about my clients. I LOVE getting to know your life story and your goals, and I especially love seeing you meet your goals! What happens in session is all about moving you towards living the life you want outside of session.
Before I was a therapist, I was a birth doula (see footnote). That means I have spent a lot of time hands-on with individuals and couples, in their homes and at their births, providing comfort through the intense experience of childbirth. I realized I wanted to serve individuals and couples more expansively by applying my intuitive, holistic approach to healing to mental health. While a therapist-client relationship looks quite different from a doula-client relationship, certain aspects of my foundation as a doula influence my work as a therapist. Namely, birth requires adaptability, attention to detail, and ability to tune into what the individual is experiencing on both a physical and emotional level. This applies to my approach to therapy. I pull from several different modalities with attention to what best fits the individual. I am psychodynamically and systemically trained, but I also pull frequently from the following modalities:
I earned my M.S. in Clinical and Counseling Psychology with a concentration in Marriage and Family Therapy from Chestnut Hill College in 2020, graduating with highest honors. I completed my clinical internship at Center for Families and Relationships in Philadelphia, where I continue to work part-time.
Note: I provide doula services currently, though I cannot see the same clients as a doula and as a therapist. If interested in doula services, please visit my website dedicated to my doula work.
