About Me

Hi. My name is Beth Field and I am a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist in California. I have worked with individuals, families and couples with a wide range of concerns for nearly 20 years. I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I received a BS in Psychology and went to San Diego State University where I received my MS in Counseling. I would describe my approach as client centered; providing an empathetic environment for clients to explore their deepest challenges in a safe place. I have worked with many couples in their search to make their relationship better. The cornerstone of this lies in building greater communication along with increased expression of respect and trust. I use a cognitive behavioral approach because I believe our thoughts have a direct impact on our feelings and behavior. Through my work as a therapist, I have gained an understanding of how we often react to our life circumstances and feel challenged to make the changes we need to in order to improve our lives and relationships. I emphasize teaching the skills that will aid in improving communication and establishing boundaries with those in our life, including ourselves. Among the concerns clients I have worked with include; anxiety, depression, parenting difficulties, loss, low self esteem and immobilizing frustration. I have been married for over 25 years and along with my husband, have raised 3 sons through their youth, rebellion and striving for independence. I have lived and worked through just about everything as a partner and a therapist.I look forward to connecting with you and working together on the challenges you are facing.

I really do feel like she cares. Not just because its her job, but just that she really cares.
