Merle 'Rebecca' Stephens, MS, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Mobile
I have been serving this community in mental health since 2004 by helping people move past blocks of growth to find joy and passion again, and I continue this lifelong mission in my current practice. I enjoy working with difficult issues; due to my training, there is little that surprises me. I enjoy treating severe mental illness, trauma based, sexual or physical abuse recovery, borderline personality disorder, OCD patients, and patients with codependency problems.
specialties: depression, anxiety disorders, borderline personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, trauma work, phobias, OCD, overcoming adjustments, addiction problems, eating disorders, grief, self esteem problems, and severe mental illness. I use an eclectic approach using evidence based practices and techniques from EMDR, Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Art Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy.
Offer 24 hour on call service; DBT group and codependency group when needed for case load. You may go online 24 hours a day and book, reschedule, or cancel an appointment. If you book an intake appointment online we will contact you within 24 hours for details. Website to book:
