Hello! I am Rebecca L. Cohen, EdD, LPC. I am a licensed counselor in Alabama. I have a great love of learning and helping others learn and grow in their own lives. Currently I am focusing my work with women. My love of learning has offered me the opportunity to gain my Bachelor Degree in Human Services and English, Master of Education, Emphasis in English, Master of Science, Counseling and Psychology, and lastly Doctorate of Education in Counselor Education and Supervision. I have worked most of my career in social service areas. Some populations and areas I have worked in and with are children and families dealing with abuse and neglect, teen and young adults in foster care, depression and anxiety issues, LGBTQ+ community, substance abuse treatment, and trauma.
I would describe my counseling style as person centered. I have always been drawn to Choice Theory/Reality Therapy. I also utilize CBT, DBT, and Motivational Interviewing to aid clients in learning new skills. I love to learn from my clients and to be a partner in their journey to reaching goals. I believe you are the expert about your life and I am only here to aid in your journey and help you find answers or learn how to better cope with issues in life. It takes courage to open up and to be vulnerable in therapy, and I respect that courage.
I look forward to being a partner with you on your journey, whatever that journey might be. I am looking forward to being able to help give you support and a safe place to grow. I can't wait to meet you and start working with you.

Rebecca is excellent. Not only does she continue to provide me with exercises and give me new ways to think about things, she also helps me to make sense of my past and my present relationships. This is especially helpful with how I'm processing my anxiety and my anxious attachment. Thank you so much, Rebecca!

Rebecca has always been very professional and thoughtful during our sessions. I have worked with other therapists before but she has made me think in so many new ways that helped me see new perspectives of the issues i face in life. I am very grateful to have worked with her.
