I am originally from Boston, but I spent the last 20 years in Chicago. In July, 2021, I moved to New Jersey with my family. I am married with four children (a 16 year old son, 14 year old daughter, and twin 11 year old sons). I love spending time with my family and friends. Some of my favorite activities are going to the beach, riding my bike, traveling, reading, watching sports, playing at the park with my kids, cooking with my husband, and sharing a meal with loved ones.
I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and my Master's of Social Work Degree at The University of Michigan. I have been working with children, families, and adults for over 20 years. I have worked in juvenile detention, schools, private practice, and as a home-based therapist. Most of my experience has been working with clients who are struggling with mental health concerns, such as Major Depressive Disorder, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, ADHD, and Psychosis. I also have worked extensively with clients who have experienced relationship issues, trauma and abuse, and interpersonal conflict.
I believe that my role as a therapist is to listen and understand the needs and motivations of my clients. Once there is understanding of the client's goals, then we can work together to help him/her/them get there and conquer obstacles that may be getting in the way. I typically use Cognitive Behavioral strategies to work with clients on changing problematic behaviors and thought processes. I approach therapy through a Humanistic lens that examines all of the systems in one's life and how they are working/not working for that client. My style is warm, open-minded, and supportive. However, I also believe in honesty and the need for direct communication. Asking for support is a brave first step in working to create the life you want to live. I'm excited to work with you on this difficult, but rewarding journey!

Rebecca Solomon is an incredible therapist. I went through major life changes, grief, death, divorce, and she stood by my side. She articulated many insights so that I could extricate myself from bad situations and kind of look at tough life situations from different angles. I grew a lot with her support. I am so thankful for my life.
