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.

Randy has been a very down to earth, friendly, and sopportive person to talk to. My Fiancee and I were looking for some pre-marital counseling before we got married, and Randy was very open to listening and offering advice on some concerns that arose in our relationship. It was also nice to hear that we were on the right path with our support and communication in our own relationship. I would definitely recommend Randy.
I was unsure about signing up for online counseling but have been really impressed with the counselor Randy Beasley. He is exceptionally well qualified not just academically but in life experience. He is very easily accessible and super responsive. I am very happy with choosing Randy Beasely and will continue. I find his counseling to be more helpful that in person counselors I have seen in the past.
He is one of the best therapist i have had and i am so happy i have him. He is very understanding not judgemental and is actually helping me thrpugh my issues.
Wow. We feel extremely lucky to have been matched with Randy. Knowledgeable, calm, warm, empathetic, and a very good communicator. I believe my long term relationship is very broken and I do not know if we will make it but Randy has given us hope. Thank you.
