Rebecca Koch

Mental Health Counselor Student Intern

Emerging on the journey of self-discovery isn't always easy—it's a process that demands honesty and vulnerability. As we navigate this path together, we'll confront the influences of others that have shaped your sense of self; allowing you to redefine and reclaim your authentic identity. These influences, whether well-intentioned or not, can sometimes lead us away from our true selves. In this process, my systemic approach serves as a guiding light, recognizing the interconnectedness of interpersonal, familial, and societal systems.

Whether you're feeling like you've tried everything and nothing changes, or you're grappling with the repetition of familiar struggles, our sessions provide a safe space to untangle these complexities and foster deeper connections. No two experiences are the same, and I tailor our approach to honor the uniqueness of your circumstances; that's why my approach is adaptable, taking into account the specific needs and developmental stages of childhood to life stages in adulthood. 

By understanding the roots of these challenges, you'll gain insight into how they shape your thoughts, behaviors, and social connections. Investing in counseling is a courageous act of self-care, signaling a commitment to your personal growth and well-being. Together, we embark on this journey with compassion and tailored support, honoring the uniqueness of your circumstances. Through our collaborative efforts, we'll navigate challenges, cultivate healthier relationships, and empower you to embrace your most genuine self.
