More about me

Licensing: MA, LPC
Years in Practice: 15

Welcome! It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life as well as to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia who graduated from Argosy University in 2006 with a master’s degree in Clinical Psychology. I have over 10 years of experience working with individuals and families who are experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, stress, employment issues, parenting concerns, relationship problems, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and suicidal ideation.

My counseling style is warm, interactive, and compassionate. I am a strong believer in treating all individuals with respect, sensitivity, and that mental health symptoms are not defining of the person. I utilize cognitive behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, rational-emotive counseling, and strength based empowerment approaches. I actively work in therapy sessions to meet your specific needs and help you arrive at insights. We will work together to implement strategies and tools you can begin using immediately. Most importantly, we will work together to make sure progress is being made on the goals you have set for yourself.

I look forward to working with you!

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness that frightens us the most. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

She is great! I love talking to her! She always understands me.

Rebecca has been so very helpful to me with the issues I struggle with. She understands my issues and helps in the best way possible. I came to Rebecca after working with Elizabeth Papa for a long while when Elizabeth had to take a extended leave of absence from Betterhelp due to family emergency. Rebecca has made this transition so much easier than I thought it could be. I’m not usually one to open up right away but Rebecca made it so easy for me to. Thank you so much Rebecca

I am just getting to know Rebecca. She is easy to talk to. She is like talking to a friend that has great advice. She has been patient and genuine. She allows me to ramble through my thought process and then response with focused help.
