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 themselves as they wish and to create their own dreams 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 and supports each client choice to engage in work that may include elements of CBT, DBT, EMDR, Existential, Feminist, Gestalt, Narrative and other therapies/modalities. When working with couples of all types, Rebecca draws on a strengths-based, attachment-focused perspective derived from Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Method Couple Therapy. Rebecca is a Registered Psychotherapist.
Rebecca strives to be mindful of systemic harms done to individuals and groups – including those harms that are ongoing – and is committed to inclusive, anti-oppressive practice.
