    I have been seeing Rebecca For quite some time now. There are no words to describe exactly how much she has helped me process and get through some of the most difficult times I’ve had this year. I will never regret the day I decided to take that step in allowing someone to help guide me on this journey we call life. Just being able to have one person that I can vent to with no judgment and has nothing but my best interest at heart is an absolute blessing. I cannot thank Rebecca enough. So if you are considering counseling I would highly recommend her.


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I can provide a short, free consultation by phone to be sure that I am a good fit for what you are looking for.  I know it can be hard to pick the right counselor based on ads, and degrees, and specialties.  The human connection is paramount to the counseling process.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Psychology and a Master's in Counseling.  I have worked in elementary and middle school, college, addiction, and nonprofit settings.  I am currently working under the supervision of a licensed marriage and family therapist.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

My organization uses a sliding scale with affordable rates for those with little to no income.  Our lowest rate is $2 for those making $0 to $10,000 per year and progresses to the highest rate of $90.

How did you get started in this business?

I have a strong interest in suicide prevention and online counseling.  These are the two main reasons I sought out a Counseling profession.  

What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults.  I have a special interest in women's issues, anxiety, depression, single parenthood, health issues, borderline personalities, and bipolar disorders to name just a few.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I recently began working with school children.  This is something that has warmed my heart even though I wasn't quite sure in the beginning.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

My advice is to know that you have it within you to make positive changes in your life no matter how unobtainable it may seem.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Customers should know that counselors cannot fix a situation but they can provide empathy, unconditional support, guidance, hope and advocacy to name just a few.
