Rebekah Rose, MSW post graduate intern
I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, and families and it is important to me that you are comfortable working with me before we dive into the heavy stuff. Rapport is an essential part of the process and one I prioritize. Once you feel comfortable and ready, I take an eclectic, client-centered approach to the therapeutic process that involves a variety of modalities including CBT, DBT, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR and other trauma-informed practices. We work together to develop an individualized plan to fit your needs and focus on your goals. Through this process my clients work to better understand their emotional and behavioral responses while learning coping skills that will help them more effectively navigate issues they are currently experiencing or may experience in the future.
Before becoming a therapist I graduated from law school but didn't become a lawyer, worked in development and then case management at a homeless shelter, I ran HR and accounting for the US branch of an international corporation, and I owned and operated a mid-sized moving company with my husband. These experiences have shaped my therapeutic approach in a variety of ways but most importantly they taught me humility and I bring that to every session. I actually knew I wanted to be a therapist halfway through law school when I was doing asylum work in the legal clinic at my law school, but I needed time to try other things before I bit the bullet and went back and invested in another degree. Now I am so glad I did because being a therapist is absolutely the most fulfilling role I have ever had. I would describe my style as compassionate and supportive, but also no-nonsense and goal oriented. Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry, and sometimes we throw around a few f-bombs. Therapy is hard work and I don't want my clients dreading appointments so I work to make the process as approachable as possible. For more information and resources, check out my website.
