RJ Beckett

(MA, LPC)

About Me

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.

Written by R.I. on Mar 31, 2020 after counseling with RJ for 6 months on issues concerning self esteem

RJ has been very supportive and not afraid to deliver hard opinions when needed. It's welcoming how understanding and cannot express how much he helped me at a low point in my life.

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.

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.

Written by T... on Sep 24, 2019 after counseling with RJ for 2 weeks

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Written by A.M. on May 01, 2018 after counseling with RJ for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship

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.

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.

Written by S.H. on Apr 10, 2018 after counseling with RJ for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship, trauma and abuse, and intimacy-related

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.

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.
