Annie Beckstrand, LPC Graduate Student Intern

Serving Children & Teens





Philosophy and Approach: 

No matter the situations that bring us into a counselor’s office, I believe that this wild idea of hope is what makes us stay. Hope is the idea that things don’t have to remain the same – that our lives can be different no matter the current moment. It can often be a battle to believe, and it doesn’t have to be done alone. I believe counseling can explore the wonderful and difficult parts of your story as well as uncover the strengths and gifts you have to navigate this difficult time. Using a strengths-based, person-centered approach, we will work towards healing and wholeness. Whether hope feels paper-thin and in need of a transfusion, with the help of a skilled companion and a safe, working relationship hope can begin to rise.


Formal Education, Training, and Experience:

I am completing my Masters of Arts in Counseling degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Western Seminary. My coursework includes Clinical Internship, Helping Relationships, Crisis and Trauma, Group Therapy, and Multicultural Counseling, as well as a number of youth and adolescent training courses. Upon graduation I will have attained a Master’s of Counseling in Clinical Mental Health with Child and Youth Counseling Emphasis.

Previous to entering my Master’s program, I have worked as a youth leader through churches and non-profits since 2014. I have a heart for healing and wholeness for young people and am hoping to continue this passion through professional counseling. 


Continuing Education and Supervision: 

I am currently a graduate student working towards graduation.  My current supervisor is Dr. Michelle Engblom-Deglmann, LMFT (OR and CA), License #T1004.
