Rebecca also provides consultation to mental health professionals who want to strengthen their CBT skills.

Rebecca’s colleagues and clients describe her style as warm, collaborative and direct. She welcomes clients from all backgrounds and enjoys working with people of diverse faiths, cultures, ethnicities, gender identities and sexual orientations. She is body positive, gender affirming, and comfortable working cross culturally. She has extensive experience working with the LGBT2Q+ community and people in polyamorous relationships.
