I understand, because I’ve been where you are. I’ve spent most of my adult life on a path of healing and transformational growth and for the past 20 years have helped others do the same via my counseling and coaching practices. I’d love to help you step fully into your authentic self so that you can live a life that is fueled by a sense of wholeness, purpose, passion, and integrity.
“Rebecca has been my therapist for over a year now. I am deeply grateful for how she listens, asks questions and advises me. I feel that I am heard, cared for, and taken seriously. We have walked through my various challenging family situations together! I appreciate that with Rebecca’s guidance I have more clarity on where I have come from, and insight into where I want to go.

Did you know that you can do therapy sessions from the comfort of your own home? Online therapy, or “telemental health,” is a convenient and effective method for treating many mental health concerns, including relationship difficulties, recovering from codependency and/or dysfunctional family dynamics, anxiety, depression, stress, grief, etc. If you have been struggling, you do not have to face it on your own. I can meet with you via live video, secure instant message (chat), or over the phone, as long as you are a resident of California (my life and career coaching services are available internationally).
Online therapy sessions are conducted via videoconference that is fully HIPAA-compliant. For online sessions, I use SimplePractice. SimplePractice is a free, fully encrypted, HIPAA-compliant video conference platform that works much like Skype or FaceTime. However, with Skype or FaceTime, your privacy is not ensured. Through SimplePractice, your privacy is preserved and sessions are completely confidential.
SimplePractice is compatible with Windows and Mac and is also accessible through a mobile device. Recommended browsers are Chrome or Firefox; however, it is also compatible with Internet Explorer and Safari. There is no need to register with any service or download any applications (however, if you use a mobile device to access the video, you will need the Telehealth for SimplePractice app. You can download it here for iOS or here for Android).
