About Me

People come to see me when they are struggling with self-defeating patterns, addiction, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, professional challenges, and seeking greater balance in their lives. I provide a warm, safe environment that fosters authentic and collaborative therapeutic relationships. I believe in the integrity of my clients and the uniqueness of their life stories and experiences. I believe our inner dialogue and self-narrative shapes the way in which we see and interact with our world and the relationships we hold. I use the mind/body connection to promote a deeper understanding of the history of trauma and facilitate healing. People describe me as compassionate and someone who brings awareness and acceptance into the therapy room.

In my practice I use an integrative approach that draws from person-centered, cognitive-behavioral, and narrative therapy as well as mindfulness and solution-focused techniques. I believe in integrating clinical and holistic approaches and include yoga and coaching as part of my practice. I collaborate with community systems and other health providers to ensure best client care.

Rebecca, thank you for taking the time and understanding my procrastination. I know you have asked me several times to send in paperwork and I still haven’t. But you continue to communicate with me and it has been very helpful

I have been in therapy with Rebecca for a few months, and she provides a warm, inviting space for me to share my concerns and work through whatever I happen to need most this week. She takes cues from you on what you need most, and you work from there. She knows when to push in with a question that challenges your positions, a light on what you may be missing from your narrative, and in general, help. I would highly recommend her for anyone struggling with anxiety and life transitions, such as myself.

I have done two sessions so far, one an establishment one and the second one a normal session. She is kind, understanding, listens closely and gives helpful tips and advice about how to manage anxiety.
