My Approach to Helping
Rebecca Greenwood is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) who has had over 15 years of experience working with children and adolescents diagnosed with mental health disorders as well as their families, particularly adolescents with depression/anxiety, self-esteem issues, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant, body dysmorphia, emotional deregulation issues, substance abuse issues, and parent-child relations. Rebecca has had the opportunity to work in a variety of settings from day treatment to community mental health clinics. Her work in community mental health centers allowed her not only to work with children and adolescents, but also with adults diagnosed with mental health disorders and dual diagnoses: depression, anxiety, mood disorders, workplace issues, and substance abuse issues. Rebecca completed her bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Hastings College and her Master of Science (MA) in Human Services with an emphasis in Mental Health Counseling at Capella University. She is an Affiliate Sex Offender Treatment Provider (ASOTP). One thing that Rebecca has learned in working with adolescents, which she thinks is true for everyone, is that they want to feel heard and validated. Life can be really hard. Many of Rebecca’s clients have been in a great deal of emotional pain, some believing that the pain will never go away. Rebecca’s therapeutic approach respects the person, providing a safe nonjudgmental climate. She uses a strengths-based and cognitive behavioral approach, and strives to find techniques that will fit each client. Rebecca views counseling as a team effort, working alongside you to help you meet your goals. Challenges do not have to define or incapacitate you. Rather, they can be the catalyst for growth and change in ways you may not expect. If you have struggled with or are struggling with emotional pain, Rebecca hopes that you will just try one more time. Come talk with her or another therapist. Life can be better. It’s time you start to live your best life, and it would be Rebecca’s honor and privilege to walk with you on your journey.
