Specializations

Here is a brief overview of some of the specializations I am licensed to provide.

CBT

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is therapeutic intervention utilized to help clients explore how our thoughts impact our behaviors, which in turn further reinforce our thoughts. By breaking the cycle of maladaptive thoughts and behaviors, CBT assists clients in catching, questioning, and evaluating alternative ways of responding.  CBT often involves ‘homework’ between sessions in which clients are asked to keep journals and complete worksheets on what they are noticing between sessions.

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an effective form of treatment for trauma recommended by organizations such as the American Psychiatric Association, the World Health Organization and the Department of Defense. Originally established by Francine Shapiro, EMDR utilizes bi-lateral stimulation in the form of eye movement, tactile, or audio stimulation to assist the movement of unprocessed trauma from the limbic system into the prefrontal cortex. Once a memory, or series of memories, moves from the limbic system, it should no longer ‘light us up’ in the way it once did therefore reducing the likelihood of triggers responses and avoidance behaviors.

MINDFULNESS

The essence of mindfulness is the ability to sit with present feelings and situations in a curious and observational way. Mindfulness is an excellent coping skill and resource for neutralizing feelings of distress and strengthening the mind/body connection. The ability to be fully present and aware of our current experiences and feelings can be helpful in alleviating feelings of anxiety and depression linked to future or prior events. Mindfulness practices can incorporate audio, physical movement, and artistic expression as supportive tools. 

HUMANISTIC THERAPY

Humanistic Therapy is at the heart of much of Rebecca’s personally philosophies and therapeutic interventions. Humanistic Therapy is form of talk therapy that promotes empathy and trust, allowing the client to safely explore deeper emotional needs without feeling critiqued or judged. Incorporating the works of Carl Rogers and ‘Unconditional Positive Regard’, Humanistic Therapy creates an environment in which clients can explore how even maladaptive or negative behaviors stem from a place of getting a basic need met.

SOLUTION FOCUSED THERAPY

Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a therapeutic intervention most helpful for those who wish to explore strategic solutions and set tangible goals as a means of overcoming life’s hurdles.  Originally developed by Milwaukee psychotherapists Steve De Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg, SFBT tools include specific questioning, 0-10 scaling of the distress caused by certain behaviors/events and identifying personal strengths. While other forms of therapy may focus on what brought you onto the therapy ‘couch’, SFBT is a great option for those who wish to focus on what will get them OFF the ‘couch’ and making fast positive changes in their daily lives.

LIFE COACHING

Life coaching is an action-focused mentoring service that allows you to explore and align your goals and your behaviors. Focused on identifying obstacles and developing motivation that can drive you in the direction of your, life coaching is a powerful tool if you seek accountability and structure in your life.
