Rebecca earned her Masters degree in Counselling Psychology at the University of Western Ontario. Previously, she completed an undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Thanatology focusing on issues related to grief and loss.
Rebecca works from a client-centered perspective, respecting that each person has a right to define their own dreams and goals for the future. She is passionate about enlisting the inner resources of each person to address the challenges they are facing, and believes that everyone has the capacity for growth and healing, no matter their past experience or present circumstance. Rebecca supports clients addressing the effects of historical or current abuse, bereavement, trauma, and other significant losses or transitions.
Rebecca incorporates tools and perspectives of several counselling orientations – Gestalt, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Feminist, Existential, Narrative and others – and specific techniques from more recently developed therapeutic domains such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Gottman Method Couple Therapy. Rebecca is a Registered Psychotherapist.
