About Me

Hello and welcome to BetterHelp. It takes equal parts courage and hope to reach out for help through difficult life circumstances and I am honored that you're considering working with me to support and assist you to live your most authentic life.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Indiana. My education includes a BS from Emerson College and MSW from University of Cincinnati in 2005. My experience includes inpatient hospital care where I counseled patients and families dealing with chronic and acute illness as well as end-of-life decision making. I am currently a practicing counselor in the Midwest working with individuals, families, couples, teens, and children.

I practice counseling with a holistic individualized approach based your current life circumstances as well as your values and goals. The therapeutic process has its foundation on the open and non judgmental relationship between client and therapist. I start where you are and help you build on your strengths to address any issues you may be having. This strength based approach is woven with the best evidence based interventions for your individual situation. I also use current neuroscience research in my practice to address trauma, stress, and anxiety through proven mindfulness exercises and activities. I also enjoy using art and music as mediums to assist with expressing emotions as well as a coping tool for difficult situations.

Counseling isn't a one size fits all endeavor. I work to ensure an individualized and mutually agreed upon therapeutic plan in moving forward to achieve your goals and live your best life.

Rebecca is truly fantastic at what she does. She’s a great ear and offers helpful suggestions. When I don’t respond timely, she checks on me to make sure I’m ok. Strongly recommend her!
