Easin Beck, M.S. MFT
Hey! Thanks for stopping by. 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.
I am living proof that therapy works. Long before I became a therapist, I was fortunate to have a great therapist who deeply changed my life. Having been a client, I know how it feels to want someone to simply listen and understand you without judgment. I know how fucking hard it can be to open up about your struggles when all you've known is criticism, judgment, and misunderstanding.
While it is important that your therapist knows the struggle, I believe it is also essential that therapists know what growth and progress look like. I have personally experienced deep healing from trauma, and I have witnessed deep healing in my clients. I bring more than clinical skills to the process: I bring hope.
Because each journey is different, we will collaboratively set goals for our work together. That said, one of my universal goals 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 consider therapy not just a profession, but a calling. 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 to live outside of session.
Something else to know about me is that before I became a therapist, I became a birth doula. I have spent countless hours with individuals and couples, in their homes and at their births, providing comfort through the intense experience of childbirth. 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 and an awareness of the mind-body connection. This applies to my approach to therapy. I tailor treatment to each individual, and I 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.
In my free time, I hang out with my 3 wonderful dogs, perform with my punk rock band, hike, and rock climb. I am a longtime vegan and animal rescue advocate. I love spending time with my child and chosen family in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania.
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.
