Thomas Beechel


About Me

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in California. Couples and individuals have been coming to me for over 35 years to overcome childhood abuse, family alcoholism, and inadequate parenting. Together we resolve marital distress, adolescent behavior problems, job stress, inappropriate anger, depression and anxiety. Adolescents have a special need to be heard and understood. I believe that many of their problem behaviors are their attempt to communicate vital information about what they need but do not feel listened to or understood. My wish is to help them communicate their needs more effectively so they can feel understood and help their parents understand them. I have a direct, highly interactive approach that quickly gets to the heart of the matter. Find the keys to having a lasting relationship. Become a more engaged and compassionate listener. Effectively communicate and negotiate for what you want and need. Call me. Let's discuss how we, together, can get you back on track to a happier balanced life.
