Lessons from Local Leaders:

Dylan Beckner

When life threw Dylan Beckner a curveball, she caught it with both hands and reshaped it into a beacon of hope for others. In our latest conversation, we join her on an intimate exploration of her journey from enduring personal loss to cultivating a thriving therapy practice, Beckner Counseling. Beckner, along with her team of diverse therapists including Amy, Erica, and Matthew, illuminates the paths they’ve woven through the complexities of mental health care, especially during the peak of the pandemic.

Struggling with triggers and eating disorders can feel like navigating a maze blindfolded. This episode peels back the layers of these challenges, revealing how controlled exposure to triggers, rather than avoidance, can forge resilience and effective coping strategies. We also hear Beckner’s approach to supporting adolescents, emphasizing the indispensable role parents play in the healing process. Moreover, she sheds light on the systemic bottlenecks that therapists and clients face, with a particular focus on the hurdles of insurance and the vital need for accessible mental health services.

Beyond the therapy room, the art of balancing the scales of work and personal life takes center stage. Beckner shares tactics to combat anxiety and depression, from the simple power of a balanced diet to the mental liberation afforded by exercise. We underscore the transformative nature of meditation, the magic of social connections, and the soothing practice of a body scan. For those drawn to the field of mental health or seeking to navigate business growth, Beckner’s candid life lessons and the mantra “you’re never too broken to be healed” remind us of the importance of networking, self-compassion, and the universality of therapy’s benefits.
