About me

My name is Rebekkah Pennington, I am a seasoned mental health professional and counselor. I have worked in the field of addictions and mental health since 1993. Before this I have years of personal experience dating back to the 70's and 80' I actually had the privilege and honor of studying under some of the original recovery movement gurus before recovery and rehabs were a thing. John Bradshaw, Claudia Black and Pia Melody have been some of my early hero's in the field.
So after my recovery began to take place for real :) in 1991 Jan 14th to be exact, God as I understand Him put a strong desire in my heart to become educated more on a professional level so that I could help others find their way back. Since that time I have achieved four college degrees in Addictions, Social Work, Criminal Justice, Rehabilitation Sciences, and Professional Counseling. Years and years of training and experience working with Men, Women and Adolescents in many varied settings. Hospitals, Residential, Intensive Outpatient, Supportive Outpatient, and Aftercare to name a few, also Jails and Prisons I have worked in Therapeutic Community settings which were some of my favorite and most passionate days. Recovery is real and it is totally possible if you are willing to put yourself all in, you get out what you put in basically and I am willing to go all in with you to help you save your own life. Literally. Or some definite improvements. Quality of life is essential and a basic peace and happiness will be obtained by working through issues and finding your authentic selves.
One of my strengths is geared towards establishing authentic relationships with those I works with, using a person-centered technique. You do and will always know yourselves, your strengths, your weaknesses, much better than I or anyone else ever could. My main mode of counseling is solution-focused, preferring an integrative approach to therapy as the ways and means to provide a foundation for building relationships with clients.

Rebekkah’s counseling style is friendly and conversational. She’s insightful, injects much-needed humor into our discussions, and offers an abundance of resources for me to continue working on myself in between our sessions.
