Rebekah Bailey, MSW
My approach to psychotherapy recognizes the primary importance of the therapeutic alliance and the healing relationship. My goal is to create a safe, compassionate environment where clients know they are not alone and learn to recognize and leverage their own strengths, challenge their own unhelpful thoughts and practices, and accept their own humanity and limitations.
I believe every person has the ability to gain insight and create change in how they experience life. Each of us has the power to choose a life that is authentic, productive and rewarding, to maximize connection and joy, to minimize suffering. In short, to live well despite challenges and limitations. It is the greatest privilege to partner with others on their journey. I have so much respect for individuals who have the courage to invest in themselves by committing to therapy.
My therapeutic approach is an integrative holistic approach utilizing cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma informed care, dialectical behavior therapy, and the principles of narrative therapy.
