: To help people get their lives back in order, when they’ve given up hope, or they’re unable to open up because of intense shame, which underlies various addictions and harmful behaviors. I take great pride in taking on difficult cases that others have given up on, and I experience utmost joy in helping people heal and align with the fulfilling lives they envision, full of purpose and promise.
After working in mental health at the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry for six years, I switched my focus to couple’s counseling and obtained various specialized therapy certifications. Soon, I realized that couples work was incomplete without knowing the nuances of the dance of intimacy, where a lot of dynamics play out. As such, I became proficient in sex therapy to compliment my couples’ work, and learned that it was the ultimate body language. So I delved deeper into sexual issues such as safety, comfort, mutual understanding, meaningful connection, trauma, abuse, miscommunication, and how we define ourselves via our intimate relationships and become defined by our sexuality – e.g. while we say we have a cardiac condition or were diagnosed with diabetes or cancer, when it comes to sex we are impotent, inorgasmic, infertile, unfulfilled, and so on. Since sex is such a crucial part of our being – which can bring us the greatest joy or pain, depending upon the context – I made it my mission to provide a safe and non-judgmental place for individuals to open up and share their deepest fears, debilitating perversions, traumatic wounds, and addictions that ruin God’s plan for our bodies. While I’ve done a lot of individual psychotherapy and couples work around various issues for over seven years, what has given me the greatest joy is helping people get back on the right track, after infidelity, sexual trauma, sex or porn addiction, body image issues, child abuse, and sexual dysfunction and/or misconduct have ruined their lives.
Beyond my private practice, I’ve been a media personality for ten years, as a host of various radio and TV shows, workshop leader, public speaker, advice columnist, and media expert on critical issues. Due to my strong voice, I was asked to host a call-in show after Sue Johanson’s retirement nearly four years ago. As such, I’m currently hosting Sex @ 11 with Rebecca – a twice-weekly, live, call-in TV show. The questions I get indicate a great need, since there are many who remain trapped in dark places for their entire lives, not knowing that help is at hand.
