About Me

Hello!

My name is Becky King and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has worked in the field of substance use disorders and mental health over the past 27 years. During this time, I have had the opportunity to work in State Government, the public and the private sector helping to make changes in systems and individuals' lives.

I have worked with children, youth and adults over the years with various life concerns including substance use, mental health, trauma, family relational issues, criminal justice involvement and several other areas. My areas of specialty include substance use / mental health disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, stress management, grief and loss.

My primary modalities for counseling including a person-centered approach, strength based, solution focused, Mindfulness, holistic health and wellness, and the use of gender responsive, culturally sensitive methods in a Trauma-Informed environment. The Trauma-Informed Approach is not only for individuals that have experienced trauma, but for everyone. It incorporates basic principles that help individuals feel safe and comfortable enough to work through difficult issues and empowered to make positive changes in their lives. Below are the five key principles of a Trauma Informed Approach:

(1) Safety
(2) Trustworthiness
(3) Choice
(4) Collaboration
(5) Empowerment

I believe that everyone has right to a happy, fulfilling life. Sometimes, life's challenges can make it difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel. However, there is always room for hope, healing and recovery.

Life may not always be easy, but it is worth it! I look forward to hearing from you and helping you on your journey to achieving a happy, fulfilling life...

Becky is a great listener and has been able to help me on so many levels. She is wonderful at following up with additional resources and support. I feel like she has helped me through one of the most difficult times I can remember and she is great at what she does. Highly recommend!

I haven’t worked with a counselor before. I find counseling holds me accountable for what I say and what I want. Becky gives me the space to think and communicate my honest feelings wants, needs and feelings. She gives me tools to work on myself and shares her notes to help me focus on what I said and what I value.

She is amazing and attentive listens to everything you have to say without judgment and then helps you work through it. So blessed I met her

Written by J.O. on Feb 02, 2021 after therapy with Becky for 2 weeks on issues concerning coping with life changes

From her very first response to my first nervous message, Becky has made me feel like I have someone in my corner. She's not only helped me organize my own thoughts but has also helped me find other resources to help myself (reading materials, different mental exercises etc). She always seems interested in what I am going through, and helps me view things from different perspectives. It's truly a partnership I've benefitted from and would recommend her to anyone trying to get a safety net under what they're going through.

Becky is a great listener and is understanding of all the feelings, issues and challenges I am facing. I leave feeling heard and she offers a lot of tangible feedback or tools to help support my goals throughout therapy.

Written by M.A. on Jan 22, 2021 after therapy with Becky for 6 months on issues concerning lgbt, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

Becky has been the supportive and empathetic voice that I didn't know I needed. I didn't have any goals or intentions when I first joined BetterHelp, but Becky has helped me recognize who I truly am and what I truly want by listening to me and asking me questions that make me reflect on my needs and behaviors. I'm so grateful to have had her support during a time filled with uncertainty. I definitely feel like I am a stronger, calmer, better person.

After just a one meeting ( as well as a few messages) Becky made me feel that not only did she care, but that she was dedicated to understanding what it was I am going through and that she was there every step of the way to help. I truly feel I can trust Becky with any and all emotions that I am going through and she will do everything she can to not only listen but to educate and challenge me through my different challenges, giving me the hope and security that I can come out on top of it all! Thanks Becky! You truly are the best counselor I could have ever asked for!

Although I have only been working with Becky for a short period of time, I feel very confident in our connection and her expertise in the field.
She is quick to respond, respects me and my concerns and has shared tons of worksheets and videos with me. I feel there is a level of trust that she respects and I have complete trust in her.

Becky gives lots of room and encouragement for you to express and is a great listening ear. She guides you smoothly to where you need to go next with things and transition to topics and other things in a helpful way. She is also vulnerable with her journey and is a great facilitator towards finding love and compassion within yourself.
