Joining us January 2023!
Rebecca received her master’s degree in Clinical Psychology from Pepperdine University. Since 2021, she has been working in community mental health, and believes that everyone should have access to quality mental health care. She is dedicated to helping marginalized and under-served populations, and splits her time between Sonoma Valley Family therapy and a community mental health clinic in the city of Oakland.
Rebecca is a trauma-informed therapist, and works with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, addiction, ADHD, grief/loss, PTSD, relationship issues, life transitions, and family conflict. She provides a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore and process their uncomfortable or dysregulating experiences, allowing them to grow and foster a deeper understanding of themselves.
Rebecca also works with couples and families dealing with conflict, disconnection, trust, and other relationship issues. Working from a systems perspective, she helps each member of a couple or family identify and change dysfunctional patterns, better understand each other’s feelings and needs, and learn to engage in healthier, more fulfilling interactions.
Rebecca is passionate about building a strong alliance with her clients, teaching positive coping skills, and helping to fully explore their experiences to promote growth and bring about lasting change. She takes steps to ensure that her clients feel both physically and emotionally safe. And she works collaboratively to ensure that clients are playing an active role in their care.
Rebecca primarily utilizes a Person-Centered counseling approach, but often integrates other techniques and interventions (such as Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Mindfulness-based Cognitive therapy, and Emotionally Focused therapy, etc.) based on the needs of each client.
Finally, Rebecca has been on the Board of Directors for the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT) since 2021 as the Pre-Licensed Director-at-Large.
