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!

I love using BetterHelp for counseling and I’m so happy I was matched with Rebecca. She is definitely a big help with the problems I am dealing with.
I was very skeptical about using a therapist or going through therapy, I'm so glad I listened to my friends. honestly I can pour my heart out knowing I wont get judged or bother the person with my issues...I also gain insight as well for Rebecca. She makes me feel that whatever choice I end up making is the correct one for me and also reassures me that i'm not a bad person and that's what I needed to hear. I've been alone for many many years thank you for letting me know that you're here for me
Rebecca is very helpfu, she listens, I can relate to her easily. I can talk to her without feeling like I am being judged, or that I can’t say what I really want to say.
Rebecca has a wonderful way of validating my struggles and challenges without judgement while supporting, encouraging, and fostering change.
I love Rebecca. She's been so helpful in my journey in feeling better about myself because she can understand very clearly what my problems are and how she can help me with them.
Rebecca has helped me so much in such a short span of time. She’s very attentive, kind and has a great sense of humor. Incredibly grateful for the time she held space and continues to hold for me.
Rebecca is very understanding and approachable, she makes opening up a comfortable experience helping you get along much faster and with ease. Very kind and supportive of you and your goals.
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 is professional, kind and understanding, she has already been a huge help to me in a few messages we’ve exchanged, looking forward to working more with her.
Non-judgmental, respectful, inquisitive.
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.
