Rebecca Solomon

LICSW, LCSW

About me

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 15 year old son, 12 year old daughter, and twin 9 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!

Written on Oct 20, 2022 after therapy with Rebecca for 4 years and 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, anger management, and career difficulties

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.

I appreciate the enthusiasm and support that Rebecca Solomon has shown me over the last few weeks! She has made my first step into therapy a foundation to my recovery and I will be forever grateful for that. Worth every message.

Rebecca has been amazing. She has helped me to focus my thoughts and to calm my emotions. She is very direct and doesn't sugar coat anything. Which has definately been extremely helpful.

It has been a pleasure working with Rebecca for the past couple weeks. I joined Better Help in an attempt to find an outlet of communication that I wasn’t getting at home. Rebecca provided me with all that I needed. She is kind, patient, and thoughtful and immediately makes you feel comfortable in the Better Help setting.

Written on Nov 29, 2021 after therapy with Rebecca for 1 year and 1 month on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and parenting issues

Rebecca truly seems like she wants what is best for me as her client. She takes the time to check in with me and follow up on issues we have discussed which holds me accountable. I trust her and she is great at challenging me but respectfully on areas of my life where I may need to be more assertive or set better boundaries. Rebecca is an excellent therapist.

I love how she keeps you focused and provides resources has a consistent time frame of responding

Written on Sep 16, 2021 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I'm someone who typically likes to talk things out, so I was initially thrown off by the idea of primarily messaging for therapy. However, after just a couple of days of messaging with Rebecca, I felt the benefit of being able to be intentional with what I shared instead of just word dumping. It was also extremely helpful for me to be able to back and reread what we had talked about. I'm very grateful for her insight, support, and patience.

Written on Apr 27, 2021 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Rebecca makes me feel validated and helps me to examine points in my life that I might be overlooking or having a hard time grasping. Her counseling style is encouraging and kind but firm.

Written on Mar 25, 2021 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Rebecca had been an amazing help. I'm not the best at explaining things and she still gets me and understands what I mean. 10/10 definitely recommend. I can't thank her enough for bringing my life and mental health more peace

Written on Feb 17, 2021 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, self esteem, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and coaching

Rebecca is very insightful and concise in her advice. I really appreciate her guidance!

Written on Dec 30, 2020 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Rebecca is kind in her response but very on point..makes me think but helps me to s healing place or get there..I find i really want to share with her and get her feedback I depend on her next steps..she is great

Written on Oct 07, 2020 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 months

Rebecca has a magical ability to really *get it* when you describe or share a problem/issue you have. She's absolutely kind, encouraging and honest; I can wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking to generate positive changes in their lives without the fear of criticism or the unknown.

For those with stubborn minds (like myself) who joined with half-skepticism, her intelligence and care really shows in her responses. If you have the slightest willingness to be helped, you'll appreciate her knowledge and her ability to deliver it.

She's mostly messages-only - this confused me at first, but I quickly appreciated being able to think/reflect/study between the messages as well as having a full transcript of the counseling. She's extremely quick to reply but always with great detail, so if your concern is of her potential attentiveness to the issues you might be going through, let this review put that to rest..

Highly recommended!

Written on Aug 03, 2020 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and career difficulties

I absolutely enjoy having Rebecca as my counselor. She looks at issues from your prospective and helps you get through to a solution. So glad I have had her at this low point in life.

I am only begining with her, she is very attentative. It is me who is struggling to use her to the fullest potential.

Rebecca is wonderful!!

Written on May 31, 2020 after therapy with Rebecca for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, family conflicts, and bipolar disorder

She is a very understanding person that really pointed out things that could help me. She gave great advice on how to fix things and work with my emotions. One thing that I wish she would have done is offered more ways to communicate with her. Other than that she has been great.

Amazing person! Gave me some great advice.

Written on Feb 26, 2020 after therapy with Rebecca for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and adhd

Rebecca has been there for me as a trusted advisor, not only to listen but give great guidance. She helps me think about situations in different perspectives and respects my decisions. I have more than once vented to no end and knowing she’s on the other side given an objective view of my situation means so much. I feel like I look at things much differently now and use a lot of the tools and techniques she has given me in my day to day life.

Written on Dec 23, 2019 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

She is very compassionate and I feel she really listens to me.

Written on Jul 19, 2019 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and anger management

I have been talking to Rebecca through BetterHelp for only a short time, but those around me can already tell a huge difference. I went through some pretty serious trauma, and it has taken me a great deal of time to actually talk to someone. Even when I feel overwhelmed and disappear for a week, Rebecca repeatedly checks in, remembers key details, and lets me know she is ready to talk when I am. That really means everything to my success with this process, as avoidance has always been an issue for me. I will continue to work with her, and I would highly recommend Rebecca based on our time talking and her obvious expertise.

Written on Jun 25, 2019 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Rebecca is extremely attentive and caring. She is very smart and really cares about her clients.

Amazing listener. No judgement and let’s you be heard. Also provided amazing recommendations in a no pressure well to help you get through times in your life where a little direction is needed. She is amazing and I would highly recommended her.

Written on Nov 23, 2018 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, and self esteem

I could not speak more highly of Rebecca. She is empathetic, listens, and actually provides me with tools and tips I can use to move forward. I have never felt more respected or comfortable with a counselor. It feels as though she genuinely cares and wants to see me happy. She gives incredible advice, and has a lot of insight about the human mind, and why we think or act certain ways, which is helpful to hear. I would recommend her to anyone.

Written on Sep 25, 2018 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks on issues concerning relationship issues

Rebecca has helped me navigate a complex issue, and has done so with extreme care, encouragement and wisdom. Being able to talk with her whenever I needed to has made such a difference at a time when life was messy, fast-paced and complicated. I appreciate her thoughtful responses and feel more confident knowing someone is always in my corner.

Written on Sep 21, 2018 after therapy with Rebecca for 10 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, and self esteem

Wonderful counselor and a great listener. The worksheets she chooses to assign are helpful if you are looking how to organize an approach to your issue.

Written on Sep 20, 2018 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 weeks

Talking with Rebecca feels like a weight lifting off my shoulders. She’s very responsive and intuitive, and I can tell she understands what I’m saying and where I’m coming from.

I’ve been to quite a few counselors, but Rebecca is the only one who has shown me a new perspective on my situation, and I’m very grateful for that. She also regularly checks in on me if I haven’t responded in a few days, which definitely makes me feel cared for.

Rebecca, you are awesome!

Written on Sep 21, 2017 after therapy with Rebecca for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship, self esteem, and anger

Rebecca has been incredible. It's been good to have someone listen and then provide constructive feedback. Sometimes the feedback has been hard to hear, but it's been spot on and isn't that one of the main reasons to talk to a counselor? If you need help, Rebecca can help.
