Meet Your Therapist Rebecca

Queer+affirming+LGBT+Trauma+focused+Therapist+in+Florida

Hello,

I’m Rebecca and I am so glad you’re here.

I have a passion for helping others make their values a way of life. Since I was young I approached struggles head on with empathy and flexibility. I grew up with the understanding that there was more to life than struggling with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, PTSD, and strain in my relationships but I lacked the tools to deal with it. When I was in college I was able to take action in my own life to find solutions that healed my inner child. (My inner teen… well that’s still a work in progress). I learned that therapy can be transformational in accelerating healing and I want to help others who are looking for answers.

I learned to harness my strengths into practical tools that my clients in Orlando and virtually benefit from daily. While earning my masters degree I focused on learning treatment approaches to address the difficulties my clients face. I have extensive training and experience using effective treatments including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Somatic therapy, EMDR Therapy, CBT, and many others. I use tools with clients that I use myself and think it is important to be an authentic therapist.

Connection is important to me and building authentic connections through listening and understanding is key. I prioritize learning about your needs, concerns, mental health history, relationships and identity. We will dive deeper to understand and gain insight into patterns and thoughts that may be barriers. We will explore family relationships, boundaries, and learn coping skills and strategies to manage and process your emotions. My clients report these insights have transformed how they view themselves and others for the better. When my clients experience this change it reaffirms why I am a therapist. I love working with people who want to live their lives free from self hate, judgement, exhaustion, worry, and hyper-vigilance.

When I am not in session, I am often spending time with my family and friends, playing video games, or watching the latest series on Netflix. I am also an active board member of Peer Support Space, a supporter of various local and national charities supporting LGBTQ+ communities, abortion access, advocacy to end abuse in relationships and supporting animal shelters. I started a podcast with my cohost Elena, and spoken on various podcasts, television interviews, as well as facilitated trainings local and state conferences about domestic and sexual violence. I sat on the human trafficking task force for palm beach county, and provided training to medical professionals on screening and supporting domestic violence and sexual abuse survivors. I have created dating abuse prevention curriculum for Palm Beach County Schools. I was previously a council member at East Stroudsburg University Council of Trustees.

I appreciate you being here and am honored to be considered in your choice for therapists. Call or email me today to get started on your journey to harnessing your strengths and finding the answers you seek. I look forward to getting to know you and providing you the care you deserve.
