Rebekah Brooks, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I enjoy working with adult individuals in any phase of life. I am very aware that you are the expert in your own life and I do not have all the answers for you. I look forward to us both learning from each other. I believe that the most successful therapy experiences involve a trusting and safe relationship between the client and therapist. I strive to provide a safe, caring, non-judgmental space with unconditional positive regard where my clients can feel free and welcome to be their authentic self.
I take a client centered and holistic approach to therapy. I work from a trauma-informed and strengths-based lens.
My clinical work draws upon elements of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Self-Compassion Therapy, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy,
Motivational Interviewing, and Narrative Therapy. Areas of specialty include
complex trauma/PTSD, adjustment/life change, self-esteem, attachment, anxiety,
and chronic Illness.
I am passionate about helping individuals overcome self-defeating thoughts and beliefs that are holding them back from meeting their goals, working through value and ethical dilemmas, and building healthy relationships in their lives. I truly believe in the inherent good of every person and look forward to helping others reclaim their belief in themselves while they move forward in living their best life. I assist my clients in building a toolbox of resources to handle stress and manage triggers, understand themselves and their behaviors in a deeper way, have compassion for oneself and process traumas and attachment wounds that have negatively influenced one’s worldview or way of interacting with their life.
More About Rebekah Brooks
Before I went to graduate school, I worked in non-profit administration for a number of years where I held several different roles. These administrative roles prepared me well to be a clinician who has an eye for detail and efficiency and who understands the challenges that clients can feel navigating their care in some systems. I have a passion for case management and try to assist my clients in connecting to needed resources and overcoming systemic barriers when appropriate.
As a clinician, I have several years experience working in integrated behavioral healthcare and outpatient mental health.
Another passion of mine is the work I have done working with survivors of sex trafficking and anti-trafficking organizations.
