Rebecca works with teens and young adults, and middle-aged adults who experience chronic emotional dysregulation and want to learn ways to accept their emotional sensitivity and, where necessary, change their emotional responses.
She helps people overcome unhealthy behaviors, which typically function to manage painful emotions, develop more skillful responses, and develop healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
Clients often come into counseling feeling overwhelmed by their life and Rebecca works with clients to help them identify their presenting concerns and goals for psychotherapy.
Rebecca utilizes an empathetic and non-judgmental approach which centers around the assumption that all behaviors made sense and met a need at some point in a client’s life. Rebecca helps clients choose and implement the behaviors that will serve them best now, in their current context.
After receiving her undergraduate degree from Drew University, Rebecca went on to obtain her M.S. in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Mercer University.

Her areas of specialization include ADHD, anxiety, mood disorders (depression, bipolar), personality disorders, trauma, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
