Therapeutic Approach/What to Expect:
Clients who meet with Rebecca can expect, in the first few sessions, for Rebecca to gather important information regarding psychological, physical, and social histories. From there, Rebecca collaborates with the client to set treatment goals and a plan for their work together. Sessions are generally scheduled weekly. The length of therapy is determined by the goals the client identifies. Rebecca believes in strengths based therapy and believes that the client is the expert of their lives. She works in a context of compassion, safety, and respect.
Rebecca’s approach to therapy is relationally-based and she utilizes Intimacy Therapy principles when working with client's. Intimacy Therapy states that humans are created with relational needs and long to relate and be known by others. When our relational needs go unmet we tend to exhibit unhealthy thinking, unhealed, emotions, and unproductive behaviors (2014, The Great Commandment Network, Intimancy Institure).
Rebecca completed basic training in Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and is in the process of becoming a fully certified EMDR therapist. EMDR therapy is an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma (2014, EMDRIA EMDR International Association).
Rebecca has worked extensively with parent/teen relationship issues and focuses on developing respect for each family member. Issues of forgiveness and the re-instillation of hope, love, and intimacy are her primary strategies. Rebecca utilizes Intimacy Therapy strategies when working with both individuals, families, and couples.
Rebecca is married and has two beautiful children. Rebecca enjoys spending time with her family, antique shopping with her forever girlfriends, spending time with her church family, running, and playing games in her free time.
