Rebecca, has her B.S. in Psychology from Purdue University, and her Master's in Holistic Counseling from JFK University. She has been a licensed marriage and family therapist since 2018.

During her years in school, as an intern and beyond, she worked with a range of people from young children to young adults and seniors. She also gained a focus during that time with children of all ages on the autism spectrum.

She is grateful to work with people to better understand and cope with their personally challenging situations including issues at work, anxiety and depression, existential crises, self-esteem, relationship issues and trauma.

Rebecca appreciates an eclectic approach to therapy and each individual based on the perspective that human beings are a mind, body, spirit collective. Her preferred tools include a mix of expressive arts, somatic awareness, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, process therapy, and mindfulness.

She has additional training in Buddhist psychology, Depth psychology and the Process Model. Additionally, she has a certification in iRest® meditative practice and Soul Collage® expressive arts practice. She says, “The rewards of understanding ourselves are vital to living life to its fullest."
