Hi, I'm Rebecca!
I'm a licensed clinical social worker practicing out of Fort Collins, CO with a focus in counseling.
Counseling: Complex trauma, attachment concerns, parenting, teenagers and adults, depression, and anxiety
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in Fort Collins, Colorado. I graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a Masters in Social Work in May 2016. Prior to joining CCAC, I trained in the counseling center at Colorado State University (CSU). This is where I completed my graduate internship and initially worked as a psychotherapist. I have worked with groups of adults at the Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery, groups of children at Courage Connections homeless shelter, and groups of students at CSU. I enjoy working with people in both an individual and group setting.
My therapy style is collaborative; I rely on clients as the expert on their life. I strive to create a warm and validating environment while challenging clients to reach their goals and full potential. I use an integrative style for my therapeutic approach, and I draw techniques from a variety of modalities depending on each client’s needs. Most of my training is in DBT and EMDR with a focus on attachment trauma. I have successfully used motivational interviewing, solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, and mindfulness techniques with clients. I conceptualize using a systems approach as well as trauma-informed and attachment theories. My goal as your therapist is to be an informed ally and advocate for you as a whole individual.
Growing up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago exposed me to a variety of people and lifestyles. I have always enjoyed traveling and engaging with cultures other than my own. My partner and I moved to Colorado from Illinois for my graduate internship, and we instantly fell in love with Fort Collins. I enjoy cuddles with our two cats and two dogs.
