Welcome to the BetterHelp community! My name is Randy Beasley I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist here in California. I have been providing psychotherapy and emotional growth services for a wide variety of issues within a number of roles for the past 10+ years.
A little bit about me, I graduated with my Bachelor of Science Degree in Business from Biola University and completed a Masters Degree in Theology from Liberty University. I was pursuing a Doctoral Degree in Theology when I felt therapy was a better way for me to help people. I completed my Master of Arts Degree from Touro University in Marriage and Family Therapy and I am currently working on a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology from CalSouthern University.
Previously I worked as a pastor and Christian camp director developing curriculum and teaching. I have experience working with addiction, foster services, wraparound, competency restoration, and couples/family therapy having worked within community-based clinics, substance use treatment facilities, a state hospital, and jail. I have received training in trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, managing adaptive practices, interpersonal therapy, The Gottman Method, as well as being a certified Mandt trainer (crisis intervention) and strength deployment inventory (motivational values psychometric) facilitator.
I would describe my approach as goal-oriented and client-centered. I use solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and an existential therapy approach to foster awareness while developing pragmatic solutions to problems. Goals are developed together and focused on changing patterns of thinking or behaviors driven by unmet needs, when these change we frequently change how we feel.
I believe healing hinges on the relationships you develop and progress ultimately follows an individual conquest of fear and acceptance of responsibility. I hope to make that journey with you.

My counsellor, Randy ,has been incredibly supportive of my journey. He’s helped me learn so much about myself and I am a better person today than I’ve ever been thanks to his wisdom and mentorship. I’m very glad to have been paired with him, and would highly recommend him to everyone.
Randy is someone who really listens and guides you through the whole process. I was able to make so much progress with my own issues in very little time by having his guidance. He was able to find a quote for almost any situation that related to what we were talking about nearly every time and it helped me so much.
He is very understanding!
Is great at what is does and offers a unique perspective. Even through just messaging he was able to hear me out, understand my point of view and offer a different perspective.
