“I have avoided therapy for most of my life. The reasons why are not clear to me yet. Perhaps because I just didn’t want to face my demons head on. I relented when my primary care doctor offered it to me in their office. In the ensuing weeks I have come to really look forward to my “chats” with Rebecca. And that is what they are, chats. Give and take and no deep hard questions asked point blank. But deep answers, slowly brought out. Her subtle use of our shared passion for food, her genuine desire to understand me better have put me at ease and I am better for it.
Rebecca cares. She cares about me, my mental and physical health are equally important to us both. She cares about what makes me tick, what makes me, me. She has taken the time to understand and listen to my quirks and helped me to open up about them. I have grown as a person while becoming a healthier, happier person. I know things will get better. They won’t always be easy or fast. But I know I have a partner to help me navigate the war zone of my brain.”
“I came to see Rebecca during a time of crisis. I was suffering from a condition called Alopecia (hair loss), my self-esteem was low and my school grades and peer relationships were suffering. During my 6 months in therapy with Rebecca she helped me challenge my distorted self-image. I regained my confidence and when we ended treatment I was back on track in school, comfortable in social settings, and my Alopecia was under control.”
Thank you for everything you helped me with !
My family and I sought Rebecca’s help when my daughter was failing in school and there was much discord in our home. I served in the Vietnam war before having a family and settling down and never fully addressed my PTSD symptoms. Little did I know how much my PTSD was impacting not just my own functioning but how I related to my family members. Through family and individual sessions I learned more about how the trauma I endured affected me. The insight I received helped me develop more self-compassion for myself and ultimately improved my relationships at home.
