ABOUT BECCA WILSON
Becca is passionate about partnering with her clients to help bring about the change they desire. Coming from a social work background and training in evidence-based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Becca helps her clients look at issues from a person-in-environment lens, drawing on a strengths-based approach to help foster transformative change. Becca’s down-to-earth nature and ability to see each person’s positive qualities inspires a sense of comfort and belonging in an inclusive and culturally sensitive environment. She is committed to meeting her clients where they are, with a judgement-free mindset and emphasis on self-compassion. She believes her clients hold the answers they are looking for and loves guiding them in the process.
Having spent the past several years working along the US-Mexico border, Becca is fluent in Spanish and loves working with people of all ages and backgrounds. She has specialized training and certification in EMDR and Trauma-Focused CBT (TF-CBT), treating different forms of trauma including community and domestic violence, sexual abuse, emotional and psychological abuse, neglect, relationship fractures, identity issues, and grief and loss. She also has considerable experience working with parents and their children in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), helping empower parents by teaching them how to manage their child’s behaviors including defiance, tantrums, ADHD symptoms, selective mutism, and difficulty with attachment. At this time, Becca is offering in person and telehealth (audiovisual) therapy sessions.
