Do you feel exhausted trying to hold it all up? Is your brain on a hamster wheel, spinning through responsibilities, forgotten tasks, and “should-dos,” without the energy to do them? Are you scrambling to cover up dropped plates? Does the feeling of shame and overwhelm make you want to quit, but slowing down feels impossible?

Together, we can find space to balance the spinning plates and feel like you don’t have to be on high alert for something crashing down. You don’t have to feel on edge all the time.

Hi. I’m Rebekah. I’m a chronic fast-goer, over-doer, over-thinker. I’ve spent my career in fast-going jobs and had to learn to slow down so I could have the family, friendships, dog, and hobbies I wanted. I want to help you do the same (though the dog part is optional).

I work with adults who are:

  • Studying in college or graduate school, balancing increasing demands and deciding on next steps;
  • Career professionals navigating workplace demands and workplace/management dynamics;
  • Experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma as social workers, medical professionals, first responders and other folks who provide high stress care and support;
  • Neurodivergent, including folks with ADHD and/or who are autistic or on the autism spectrum: wanting to figure out self acceptance, masking, or what it means to be uniquely you;
  • Individuals looking to change how you “relationship”–looking to break old relationship patterns and explore and redefine your attachment and intimacy patterns. (I do not offer partners/relationship therapy at this time.)

Maybe you’re neurodivergent and wired differently, and have learned to navigate stressful situations by “just sucking it up” and internalizing the stress as “something’s wrong with me.” We can evaluate what’s a trauma response versus what’s a stressful sensory input, and see where changing tactics might bring some relief. Let’s reframe “something’s wrong with me” to a neutral, shame-free, judgment-free strategy to managing stressors. Self-blame has never been constructive for anyone!

We can look at the shame and anxiety that yanks us around, without letting it take over and dictate life. We can repair dropped plates—relationships, school, work, or other important things—even if it feels like they can’t be repaired right now. We can talk about the things that feel ugly to say out loud—the resentment of caring for others, the anger over situations that won’t change, or the fears that keep us detached from what we actually want. We can use humor, acceptance, and value-driven action to put together the life you want.I am open and accepting of who you are and where you want to be. I want therapy to feel like a safe space to find and be who you truly are, without the shame and fear smothering you.

Some of my approaches include:

  • Shorter term therapy for ADHD skills: scaffolding and solution-focused therapy, coaching and goal-based solutions (3-6 months)
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
  • Somatic approaches for people who feel feelings differently 
  • Parts work and creating space for *all* of you, not just the “easy” parts 
  • Self-acceptance and self-compassion for perfectionists and inner critics 
  • Inner values and getting to know the “real you” and what you want in life

CSWA supervision

I also provide supervision for CSWAs looking to complete their clinical hours. I especially love to work with neurodivergent clinicians and people looking to work within a social justice framework. I’m here to support you in your professional and emotional growth while working toward your licensure goals. We will explore using your inner values and strengths to guide your clinical work, and how that acts as a buffer for burnout. We will make space to support navigating complex client situations through a systems-oriented lens.
