Welcome! It is my honor and privilege to work as a therapist. I have worked in the field of counseling for 25 years, offering support in the areas of personal development, professional coaching and self-advocacy. My graduate studies were in the area of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and doctoral work in the area of Cultural Diversity and Inclusivity.
Counselor - As a therapist working with individuals, providing a safe space where a client can be open in sharing their story, exploring their life and reflecting on positives and negatives is my goal. I like the term 'naturally therapeutic' as people find the approach supportive, helpful and meaningful. Identification of concerns, development of goals and implementation of new strategies and skills are a helpful sequence for growth. Some counseling modalities supportive of these strategies include Person-Centered Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy
Coach - As a therapist working with individuals, there is often a connection between a clients personal issues and their professional development. This may become a good opportunity to look at professional growth and for development of career goals. Linking these to personal objectives can provide opportunities for generalization of skills into the world of work and positive growth professionally. Additional to other therapies, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Mentalization Based Therapy are helpful tools.
Consultant - Many adults have identified special needs, specifically ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, etc. While they may have developed coping skills and strategies, as one moves into the world of work, relationships and family life, new skills and strategies may be needed. Self- advocacy is an important skill and strategy for higher education and working environments. My work as a special education specialist and advocate can help adults become skilled and empowered into adult circumstances. Some modalities might include those mentioned above or additionally Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Psychological Testing and Evaluation would be useful to consider.

I feel like she truly understands where I’m coming from and has the knowledge and resources to help me work through things.

Rebecca was wonderful at building that initial relationship. This allows me to feel incredibly comfortable confiding in her and keeps me engaged in therapy.

Rebecca's been a fantastic counselor! I highly recommend her to anyone!
I have been working with Rebecca for a couple of months now. When I signed up for counseling I was suffering with anxiety, panic attacks and depression and had hit a real low point. I had become overwhelmed by a complex life situation that I just couldn’t figure out and felt I needed professional help.
Rebecca has made a huge difference and continues to make a positive impact on my recovery. She is able to both listen and prompt with thought provoking and challenging questions to help us get to the heart of the matter and start to unpick things from there. She emphasizes and encourages self care and I feel so much more healthy and balanced as a result.
We chat once a week and the flexibility of phone sessions and a wide variety of appointment times means I can fit around my schedule. Rebecca also encouraged me to journal regularly and will respond to messages promptly so I know I have support there when I need it. I regularly receive articles that relate to my situation or techniques of dealing with stressful situations.
I feel Rebecca understands and cares and would be happy to recommend her.

Talking to Rebecca is like talking to an old friend. She has such a compassionate, kind voice, I instantly found I could open up to her. She is a wonderful listener and gives practical advice. I have always struggled finding the time to fit in therapy appointments but since I found BetterHelp I can schedule sessions when it works for me. Rebecca’s schedule is flexible and accommodates day, evening and weekend appointments.
Caring and understanding
I really appreciate the articles and excerpts that Rebecca sends me between sessions. They reflect my own thoughts related to therapy which incorporates nature, spirituality, and meditation. It also gives me something new to contemplate and incorporate into my daily practice.
I referred a friend to my counselor a few weeks ago. Rebecca is patient and a great listener. She helps me explain my feelings and what is going on in my life. The articles help and have improved my moods with certain exercises.
