Rebecca is passionate about and skilled at working with relational and developmental trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, anger, substance abuse, and other self-defeating behaviors. She takes a relational and trauma informed approach with those with whom she works, believing that self- defeating behaviors often develop as a means for survival. Rebecca utilizes individualized and holistic interventions including a sensorimotor approach which supports the awareness and integration of the three levels of experience (body, emotions, cognition) to promote healing.
Rebecca empowers others to develop a healthy relationship with themselves, discover their authenticity and build a life they want to live.
