Rebecca Pepp

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 9 years of experience working with adolescents and families in schools in the city of Chicago. I have extensive experience in addressing trauma, grief and loss, and family conflicts. I have worked with adolescents and adults struggling from a wide range of difficulties, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, and Anxiety Disorders. I have experience in helping clients develop improved social, communication, and coping skills, as well as anger management skills.

I mainly use a cognitive-behavioral approach, but I also draw inspiration and techniques from other treatment modalities, including dialectical behavioral therapy, humanistic, and psychodynamic approaches. I believe that without a strong rapport and mutual respect and positive regard, the therapeutic process is not successful. Because of this, I work hard to build strong relationships with my clients. I am warm, personable, and non-judgemental, and work hard to maintain positive relationships while fostering growth in the therapeutic relationship.

I believe that therapy can help anyone who is motivated for change. I love working with clients, and I am passionate about being a part of the therapeutic process. I look forward to working with you!

When I got Rebecca, I just knew she would be great. She laughs with me which is huge because therapy doesn’t have to be always intense. She knows when to be serious and when to have joy.

Rebecca really listens to my problems and concerns, and makes me feel like she cares about what I am going through. She responds to my emails swiftly and articulately, and is really helping me during an extremely stressful and difficult time of my life.

Rebecca has equipped me with helpful coping techniques, offered valuable insight and compassion, and been extremely responsive and relatable. She was my third attempt on Betterhelp.com after trying to make it work with two others, and I'm sincerely very grateful to have been connected with her. I feel so confident and hopeful about getting better now that I'm working with her.
