Hi, I'm Rebecca

 I believe each person is unique and that their experiences, in addition to biology, help shape who they are. I understand that each person is different and requires treatment that reflects their own individual needs. I took a nontraditional route to become a therapist. Growing up with a single mother had its pros and cons; I was able to take the good stuff with me while also learning from the not-so-good stuff. As a young adult, I worked in warehouses. I was eventually laid off from a long-time position and decided it was time for me to go to college. A couple of years into my schooling, I realized that I wanted to use my life experiences to help children and their families get through and grow from the hard times. I earned my college degree in social work and have worked with clients from young children up to the elderly. I have worked with foster youth in child protective services, adults in an inpatient hospital, and middle school youth and their families in a school setting. My background has contributed to my understanding of the connection between people and the systems in which they are involved. I learn a lot from my clients and I enjoy learning about the brain; I feel that understanding what is going on in there is so helpful in understanding our mental health.
