Hi! My name is Rob Beckett. I have worked with teens my entire professional career. I began working with adolescents early on in a residential treatment facility as a mental health technician while I acquired my Masters in Professional Counseling (LPC). I then worked as a clinical therapist in the same setting for several more years. While completing my Masters degree I also interned as a high school guidance counselor. Approximately four years ago I transitioned to a new position as a Guidance Counselor at a public middle school. Additionally, I am a contractual therapist with a private practice in my hometown and have several teen and pre-teen clients. I hold licenses with the state of Michigan for both professional counseling (LPC) and school counseling (K-12 NT).
I have extensive experience working with adolescent clients. The types of issues I have dealt with range from family/parenting issues, peer issues, bullying, substance abuse, LGBTQ populations, abuse, rape, ADHD, medical disabilities, depression, suicide, self harm, etc.
- Relationship issues
- Family conflicts
- Parenting issues
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Stress, Anxiety, LGBT, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression

Very excellent. Professional and understanding. Provided me with very valuable information and immense help. Thanks very much Rob!
Our counselor is wonderful! I would recommend him to others.
I had a great time counseling with him! He was really understanding and always positive no matter what. He really helped me manage my anxiety and my feelings so I wasn't so overwhelmed all the time. He was very down to earth. Great communicator too. Couldn't ask for a better counselor!
Deciding you want to start counseling is not always an easy decision. Talking about yourself and your feelings and sharing your most inner thoughts can be an awkward experience. RJ knew how to make me comfortable from the get go and he has been a great support to have. After just a few sessions, sharing my experiences and thoughts with him is almost natural and he has provided with excellent advice, pointers and pushed me to explore other avenues of thoughts.
He is not only a counselor but a good friend for me! I feel like sharing with him every day what is happening in my life and I get good listening abilities and support.
RJ has been truly caring and listening while appropriately challenging at the same time.
Mr. RJ is very kind. He makes you feel like you’re actually heard. He’s very laid-back and easy to talk so. I’ve never encountered someone interested in helping as much as he does. He’s very passionate about guiding people and I wish him all the best in life. Thank you very much Mr. Rj.
RJ is an attentive and very good guidance. Great counselor!
I’m so grateful that I have someone who genuinely just wants to support me in whatever this journey has to offer. Robert has an instinct on how to navigate when to ask me questions and when to listen. Robert’s nonjudgmental energy is very present which creates a space of freedom and comfort to be totally transparent. I feel I can talk to him about anything and never feel embarrassed or ashamed no matter the subject which leaves so much openness and room for me to discover more layers to uncover I never knew existed. Best part is that I never feel that I’m doing this alone and I know he’ll always be there. Thank you, Robert Beckett. I appreciate you so much!
This man has been a lifesaver to me through some traumatic recent experiences. He was so prompt reply to my messages. Not only does he have the expertise to help me - he genuinely cares. I am so thankful to know this kind soul.
Robert is a very kind and understanding person. Always responds with meaningful and thoughtfully written advice ..he has helped me a lot with solid applicable solutions.
Rob listens to me. He doesn’t treat me like just another patient. I feel as if he is a friend that I can pick up where we left off when we talk. Meeting with him helps me a lot and I would recommend him to anyone!
Being with Mr. Robert Beckett for continuous nine (9) months only proves that he's an effective counselor and commendable! He could easily ease my pain and sufferings that I've been going through. teen counseling is lucky to have an "asset" like him. Anyone would be pleased to have him as a friendly and caring counselor!
Rob is the best human on the face of the Earth. It's as simple as that. I'm having a really tough time in my relationship at the moment and not only has Rob reassured me and helped me see things in a more positive manner. He has also validated my concerns as not being ridiculous and that my thinking is somewhat rational. I couldn't recommend him enough and I am truly indebted to him. Thank you Rob!
We just started and he seems to be doing great!
He is an amazing person. He listens and gives practical advice while not pretending he knows everything. He is thoughtful, patient and kind. I have had many poor counsellors but Robert is by far the best I have had.
Robert is a very smart and helpful person. I feel heard by him and understood. No problem is to big or small for us to tackle together. I feel grounded and more focused in my life with his guidance.
As a female, I was admittedly nervous to have a male therapist for the first time in my life. But, Robert has been a shining star! His response times are super fast, he doesn't mind my long and ramble-y messages, and he's always made me feel understood and listened to.
Im definitely a fan of this online counseling I think it’s wonderful to have the opportunity to receive help on your own time I appreciate Roberts time and his thoughtfulness going through these sessions. I’m looking forward to learning some new tools to use with in my relationship, to teen counseling me grow as an individual and a better person for my spouse. I believe Robert has the education and expertise to deliver.
Robert Beckett is a very thoughtful and articulate professional that is allowing my partner and I to make break throughs and reach goals that we thought were impossible.
Rob is an exceptionally good counsellor. He is very warm, wise and real. With his help, I've started to make positive changes I previously felt were too complex to make. His perceptiveness and patience have been key assets in making those changes. We have an excellent relationship, and I trust him completely. I can't recommend Rob enough, he's the best!
Rob is an amazing counselor. Empathetic, understanding and with a great sense of humor. It’s like talking to a really good friend who also gives great advice. I enjoy working with him and feel that our sessions have improved my relationship and generally my well-being. Thanks for everything!
Robert responds in a timely manner and gets straight to the point. He relates his own life experiences to mine to help give me insight and a different perspective. 10 out of 10, would recommend.
Rob is awesome. He offers a different approach from a very objective point of view. My husband and I have different levels of comprehension in regards to how we receive advice and information and Rob does an excellent job of tailoring and tweaking his dialogue to conform to each style. He is compassionate yet stern if the moment calls for it. He has really helped my husband and I close a few chapters and communicate more productively. I brag about our experience on teen counseling often. Not personal details of course but just how well the experience has benefited us. We were nervous at first but now Rob is a household name and teen counseling is most definitely a staple.
Beckett is awesome and hilarious, great balance between therapist and human!
Rob is simply great! He listen to my problems and is very emphatic giving me real tools to overcome them.
Robert Beckett has helped me walk through my stressful journey. He listens, he is encouraging and somehow makes me feel comfortable sharing with him. I feel understood by him and he makes feel like I have a friend who can listen to me at a time where I felt I needed to share about my stressful phase.
Rob is very personable and easy to talk to in the short time we have spent with him. His ability to be empathetic is amazing. Our relationship has improved so much thanks to Rob.
Rob was a fantastic counselor. He made me feel listened to and gave me honest opinions. He is unique in his ability to make you work to better yourself without making you feel pressured or judged. Like having coffee with a friend. I would 100% recommend him to anyone in need.
There simply are not enough words to describe what impact Rob has made on my life.
He is incredibly professional, yet so relatable, and down to earth. I often thought counseling was based on what these individuals learned throughout their education. However, I have come to realize for some this is just their calling in life. Rob is truly gifted and naturally compassionate. I thank him for simply being him and not treating what he does like a job, this is a passion for him and it shows.
He speaks to me in great way. He hits all my topics of concerns that I share in a real life manner. He lets me know I'm not alone and I can get thru my issues.
Rob is a really lovely guy to speak to. I never feel judged. It’s amazing to just talk and feel listened to.
Robert Beckett is an outstanding man. I could drone on about him and what he's done for me ad Infinitum, but his work is a credit to itself. He is a dedicated and busy man to all that he juggles and as such he dedicates himself to making you feel comfortable. Be open, honest, and free with Rob and he can really help you too.
