My Approach to Helping
My name is Rebecca Gates I am a Licensed Professional Counselor as well as a Licensed Master Social Worker and Certified School Counselor. I completed my Masters's in Social Work at Tulane University, in New Orleans LA. I view counseling as an important process in which the client is able to heal, seek growth, and achieve personal goals. I view my clients with unconditional positive regard and believe it is imperative to have a safe and nurturing space in which one can truly share. I meet clients where they are and seek help to identify your goals for counseling so that you may grow and accomplish what you desire. As a counselor, I lean toward strength-based, solution-focused, and cognitive-behavioral therapy.
In counseling, the relationship with your therapist is an important one in which trust, rapport, and understanding are all needed. I believe that it can take time to find the counselor that is the correct fit for you and hope you will give yourself the time and space necessary to find what you need. It would be an honor and pleasure to help you in your journey!
