Rebecca Frank, LPC-Associate.
Rebecca holds a Master of Arts in Professional Mental Health Counseling from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR and a Bachelor of Science in Education with a focus in psychology from Boston University-formerly Wheelock College in Boston, MA.
Rebecca provides individual, couple, family, and group therapy. She has experience addressing trauma, burn out, stress, anxiety, depression, infidelity, identity, self-esteem, domestic violence, chronic illness, career impacts, attachment patterns, acculturation, grief/loss, relational and familial challenges, and existential inquiry. She has additional experience supporting those in non-monogamous relationships and those who identify as LGBTQ+. A specialty area that she focuses on is peripartum/postpartum related concerns.
Rebecca values embodying the simple yet powerful acts of openness, non-judgment and empathy, and cultivates a space in which clients feel safe, respected, and trusting of the process. She appreciates taking a collaborative and strengths based perspective with her clients, as she believes that clients have internal resources and innate abilities that can be fostered towards growth and healing.
Rebecca applies an integrative approach, utilizing ACT, MBCT, narrative, attachment, and psychodynamic theory, and uses interventions from DBT, somatic psychology, neurobiology, feminist therapy, mindfulness and art therapy techniques. She sees value in understanding these elements from a systems lens, taking notice of the ways in which family, culture, societal structures, and oppressive forces interact and have influence on our personal identities and lives. Rebecca will also provide Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
