“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”

—T.S. Elliot

Welcome to My Practice

My specialty is providing counseling support to men, women, and couples who are seeking a richer, fuller life. My clients are of all types of personalities, of many ethnic backgrounds, straight and gay, religious and non-religious. While rich in their diversity, they share a willingness to risk new ways of thinking, relating, and living—all qualities for successful therapy.

The Need For Change

I believe deeply in the capacity of people to change. If we are struggling and feel stuck in some ways, it’s not because we want to be miserable or are in some way a “bad” person. We simply lack the right kind of support to find our way out.

A Way Out

Therapy provides a way out. The latest in brain research affirms what many therapists have known for some time—that empathic connection does in fact create change, as it literally rewires the brain in ways that stimulate new centers of initiative, confidence, and calm.

I Can Help

It is my privilege to provide the guidance for our work together. I bring the education, training and experience for the task. I invite you to browse my website to learn more about me and my practice.

I’m glad you found me. —George Beukema


I am privileged to witness each day in my office an increasing vitality among my clients as they join me in creating a very unique kind of space for growth. Couples and individuals who come to therapy are looking for a change, for a deeper connection to themselves, others and the world around them. They come to therapy because they often feel stuck and desire to find ways to enrich their lives. They come in need of a certain kind of transitional space to help them move from one place to another. Carl Jung of Jungian Psychology speaks of this kind of space as “liminal space”—the emotional space of transition between where you’ve been and where you are going. This is the kind of space that is made up of both uncertainty and possibility, which often creates feelings of both fear and hope. This is a room that offers opportunities for growth but as with any gain, there is often going to be some pain. When an individual or couple reach out to me for help, I immediately assume that while they may be feeling a bit anxious, they are actually feeling brave. It takes courage to choose to enter this kind of space. And of course it helps tremendously to have an experienced therapist to provide the kind of emotional support needed to work through whatever issues and concerns bring them to me. I find much meaning in being able to provide the kind of space for others that was once provided for me.

My Specialties

Individual Counseling

People seek therapy for different reasons. Some just want to work through a particular situation. Others want help in working through a long-standing struggle or problem. Increasingly, men and women are discovering that therapy adds value to their work, relationships, and overall quality of life.

Couple’s Counseling

Healthy relationships contribute significantly to a person’s health and well-being. But many struggle to experience the kind of connection they long for. Couples often get stuck in patterns that leave them feeling alone and frustrated. I can help you make sense of these patterns which makes change and greater intimacy possible.

Men’s Counseling

Men often find the process of therapy un-inviting and unhelpful. I bring a particular sensibility to, and understanding of, the unique challenges men face in navigating the world of emotions. I work with men to help them gain greater depth and meaning in their personal and relational life.

My Fee

We will determine the fee for our work together during our initial consultation. My fees are competitive with others in the field who bring similar education, training and experience.


I do not take insurance, however, your insurance company will reimburse you for a portion of my fee through your out-of-network benefits. If you wish to submit for reimbursement, I will provide you with an invoice that will contain all the necessary information required by your insurance company and guide you through the process.

People say that what we are seeking is a meaning of life. I don’t think this is what we’re really seeking. I think what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive.
