Rebecca provides counselling to individuals, couples, and adult families dealing with a wide range of emotional and psychological issues. Her areas of specialty and interest include interpersonal relationships, depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, trauma, coping through loss, divorce, and separation, as well as issues related to the dying and grieving processes.
With a warm and empathetic style, one of Rebecca’s greatest strengths is her ability to connect with clients. She views her role in the counselling process as a collaborative facilitator, helping people to determine and meet their personal needs and goals. She has a strong belief in her clients’ inner resources and endeavors to help them connect with their own inner wisdom, strengths, and the significant people in their lives.
Although Rebecca is well-versed in a range of therapeutic models including experiential, psychodynamic, narrative, and emotionally-focused therapies, she works with each client to develop an individualized program that integrates the therapeutic approach most suitable for them. Rebecca is also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), and has found this to be one of the most effective approaches when working with clients who have experienced trauma.
Rebecca has a Masters degree in Social Work and is a registered member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. She participates regularly in continuing education programs to ensure that she continues to provide the most up-to-date and effective services to her clients.
