Life can be overwhelming. No, life is overwhelming. When you think of the “Happiest Place on Earth”, what do you think of?
Maybe you’ve heard about EMDR from a friend or you were recommended to do it by your therapist. You hear it’s the “gold standard for the treatment of trauma” but don’t understand how, or maybe you’re even scared to do it.
My name is Rebecca. I am a Counseling Intern at Grow Psychological in Leawood, KS.
I was raised in a suburb of Kansas City, in a Deaf family. I am a Child of Deaf Adults (CODA) and American Sign Language (ASL) was my first language.
I graduated from the University of Missouri with a Bachelor’s in Human Development and Family Science and a Minor in Psychology. I am currently attending Walden University for a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and after graduation, I will receive my license as an LPC in the state of Kansas.
My passions include anything and everything Disney, advocating and spreading awareness for those with chronic illness, and working with children and teens. I am one of few practicing counselors in the Kansas City area who provide counseling in ASL, and I am proud to be able to serve the Deaf community in this capacity. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2018. I believe this has given me significant insight into the world of chronic illness.
As an intern, I am shaping and forming my theoretical orientation. At this time, I primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) techniques in counseling. My services are offered at a significantly reduced rate of $35.
