We will explore early attachments, trauma , and the cultural/societal/familial/internal forces shaping your unique view of the world and how you value yourself within that world.
You are enough. Past experiences may have created a negative inner voice undercutting your self-worth and capacity for joy. People pleasing and perfectionism may have left you needing to do or be more, unable to enjoy the present. We can work together in a secure and non-judgmental space to rewrite your narrative and silence the self-talk. We will identify your own needs and prioritize them, allowing you to be present with grace and acceptance as you navigate healing past wounds or face life's challenges. Therapy will empower you to recognize your intrinsic strengths, forging a new path toward a life of meaning and fulfillment.

Things are crazy right now, huh? Our world is in an extreme state of uncertainty which can tax our existing coping strategies, shed light on unhelpful habits, and challenge us with fundamental questions about ourselves and our place in the world. I work with clients wanting to lean into these issues and offer a warm presence as they explore what’s happening underneath. Typically, I work with those struggling with trauma , depression, and/or anxiety, wanting to untangle the influences of their past. I also offer support to those that are dabbling with psychedelics by providing risk reduction and integration.

I enjoy helping people who work in the entertainment business; sexual/emotional/physical trauma ; interpersonal conflict; anxiety; depression; bipolar disorder; addiction; self-harm.
People are complex and life can be very challenging. The way we process and live our lives, especially the way in which we respond to life's difficult challenges, is often informed by painful experiences from our past, and unresolved issues. I will help you find the inner resources you need to recover, understand yourself better, and create the changes that will improve your well being. We all have the potential to heal, grow, and be successful in our lives. It is this potential that provides hope for all of us to overcome pain and adversity.

These are such intense and overwhelming times. We are all grieving. Before 2020 maybe you had some anxiety or a history of trauma but overall you were functioning and feeling OK without ongoing therapy. Or despite all you do to take care of yourself, you were experiencing quite a bit of anxiety and stress, struggling with feelings of shame, anger or self-hatred for a very long time. Since 2020 and that's happened your nervous system is on overload and everything feels overwhelming, exhausting, scary. The existential pain you’ve struggled with is back and real and being felt by you and people all over the world.

It's tough to be human. I use a trauma -informed approach, working primarily from a place of wanting to understand your perspective. I believe in supporting you with reframing thoughts and narratives that may no longer serve you. I work relationally, supporting you identify themes in your life that may hinder you from having the most meaningful life possible. I believe in supporting you create an experience that is purposeful; the pace of therapy can move as slowly or quickly as you deem comfortable. I’m licensed in CA, OR and FL (telehealth).

Hi! I'm Rebeks (they/them) - a transmasculine nonbinary therapist who specializes in trauma , LGBTQIA+ affirmative therapy, and life with chronic illness, disability and neurodiversity. I love working with folx in the "gray spaces" of identity who aren't quite sure they are (fill in the blank) enough. My astrologically-minded friends describe me as "such an earth sign" - which I translate as grounded, unwavering, and dependable. My approach to therapy is to provide solidity and a sense of containment to enable the deeper healing-work — especially for those with complex trauma , dissociation and early attachment ruptures.

As a trauma therapist, I interweave scientifically-based techniques: EMDR, Somatic Experiencing, trauma -informed mindfulness, and empathic reflection gently and organically into our work to accelerate the healing that your mind is naturally wired for.
The past can get in the way of living the life you truly desire. This can feel like a deep sense of unworthiness or a fear of being who you really are and asking for what you really want. Do you get lost in worrying? Or caught in the same patterns not knowing how to break the cycle? Instead of feeling calm and joy, you find yourself emotionally spiraling, judging and trying to gain control of every moment. It can be hard to trust that things are going to be ok or that you will be able to handle it if things are not ok.

I am a trauma specialist, dedicated to attuned, relational recovery.
We’re finding ourselves living in a fragmented world, trying to hold it together when the nature of things is to fall apart. How can we feel whole within so much fragmentation? The big questions arise: Who am I now? What matters to me? How do I enliven myself within these restrictions? We are all grieving, mourning lost friends, illusions of safety, illusions of control and predictability, opportunities gone that will never return. Are you sadder? Sadder and wiser but more adrift? Are past traumas holding you back? Right now is the time to get more support as you grapple with your life's meaning and purpose.

I have worked with people suffering depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, pain from a past or recent trauma , loss and grief, those who are divorced or divorcing and single parents.
You may be feeling sad, anxious, overwhelmed, or confused. You may be experiencing a difficult life transition or feel that something is missing in your life. It is important to find a therapist with whom you have a good fit, a feeling that your therapist "gets" you in order to develop the trust necessary in a therapeutic relationship. I have over 35 years of experience helping people in a safe, non-judgmental environment. It is through feeling understood that we come to understand ourselves better.

At times, we experience painful feelings of guilt and shame, or think "I am not good enough". I specialize in helping individuals with severe sexual abuse & trauma . My primary approach is called EMDR, a mind and body therapy which can help you cope more effectively with painful emotions. When a person experiences mild to severe trauma such as abuse, divorce, job stress, or a life-threatening illness, the brain cannot always process the event as it should. As a result, trauma can have a lasting effect and can interfere with your relationships, job and coping with everyday life. EMDR treatment can help move toward healing.

Psychotherapy is an opportunity to feel better, to learn what makes you happy, and to become your most genuine and creative self. As a safe and empathetic environment, therapy can help reduce symptoms like anxiety and depression. By jointly exploring unconscious forces in decision making and the function of our nervous system on behavior, my goal is to help improve your relationships and encourage growth towards your specific goals. I strive to incorporate a blend of body and psyche using somatic experiencing and depth/psychodynamic psychology. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, trauma , relationship issues, and addiction.

I have extensive professional training in trauma and more than six years experience working with traumatized children, adolescents and adults helping them move forward with their lives.
If you are the victim of a traumatic event, you are not alone; many have suffered sexual, physical or emotional abuse, as well as neglect, abandonment, bullying or have witnessed traumatic events as a child or as an adult. Unfortunately, many people live with the detrimental effects associated with trauma . If you are struggling to recover from life-changing events, feeling that life's difficulties are interfering with your well-being, I can help you. Through a collaborative effort and the utilization of trauma focused-insight oriented approach you can eliminate shame, guilt, intrusive memories, nightmares, depression, anxiety and fears.

My specialties include EMDR for trauma , CBT for depression and anxiety and motivational interviewing with 12-steps for addiction.
The therapeutic process is unique to the client. For some it involves deep reflection and questioning old idea's, and for others a problem solving collaboration. For me it is the excitement of the journey you will embark on, and the endless possibilities for growth. Transparency is paramount, and key to the process for both client and therapist. Work is progressive and tailored to the individual. As issues emerge, treatment plans are re-assessed and revised to meet client needs. For trauma I am trained in EMDR and Functional Family Systems for addiction CBT and 12-step and for couples family systems.

I am a Certified EMDR practitioner and Approved Consultant and I have found EMDR effective for development trauma , post-traumatic stress and other conditions such as anxiety, phobias, and stress and panic attacks.
I am interested in treating people whose potential is hindered by negative concepts of themselves imprinted in childhood (through traumatic experiences or neglect of basic emotional needs) and who frequently suffer from symptoms like chronic depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. I am committed to helping these individuals attain a sense of self that brings them happiness and fulfillment. My basic perspective is that the human mind possesses the capacity to heal itself, if guided in the right way. I have explored various methods and approaches to helping the mind restore its basic wholeness.

I hold two trauma certifications (EMDR/TRM) - they offer me the ability to work with trauma as it shows up in the body and where it will stay if not addressed directly.
Imagine having new tools to deal with difficult feelings and difficult people. Imagine feeling ready and excited about what might come your way. Therapy offers you the opportunity to move forward in your life towards the goals and dreams that are most important to you. Informed by previous careers in theatre and film along with specialized trauma training (both TRM & EMDR) and my experience as an adoptive parent, I am uniquely positioned to engage challenging issues in the creative professions, trauma (both incident specific and developmental) and adoption along with the anxiety and depression that are too often part of making our way through life.
