Beck is a master’s level clinician with an undergraduate degree in Sociology with an emphasis on Gender & Sexuality and a master’s degree in Addiction Counseling. Beck has worked in the mental health and substance use field for over 10 years in various capacities. The main focus of his work has been invested in the LGBTQI+ community, adolescents, and families. Over this decade, Beck has trained numerous facilities on LGBTQI+ best practices, has been a keynote and presenter at many conferences and has facilitated workshops about LGBTQI+, trauma, adolescents, gender and sexuality.
Beck grew up outside of Los Angeles and has lived in many states across the U.S. He got sober July 11, 2005, and believes recovery is the foundation of his success and gave him the ability to live authentically. Beck’s superpower is using his platform to speak out about issues of social justice. He loves musicals and Madonna. By day, you can find him hanging out with the Visions team creating some awesome new programming; by night, you can find him hanging out with his wife (Shana) and two dogs (Tootsie and Scout), and making his way through all the restaurants around the Los Angeles area, or maybe at a spin or yoga class.
