Becca is a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (LGPC), National Certified Counselor (NCC), and Certified Clinical Telemental Health Provider (CTMH). Becca obtained an undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland Global Campus and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Johns Hopkins University. Becca brings experience from both inpatient and outpatient mental health settings to their therapy practice, with a background in treating substance addiction, anxiety, trauma, depression, grief, and life transition concerns.
Becca practices from a Relational-Cultural orientation, looking at how trauma, stress, and shame are impacted by systems of oppression, cultural expectations, familial wounds, and the lived experiences in our bodies. Becca has developed a niche for working with LGBTQIAP+ adolescents and adults and brings an affirmative and celebratory style of counseling when working with folks from marginalized communities, particularly individuals navigating their sexual, affectional, and gender identities.
As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), Becca pulls from a variety of body and brain-based modalities, including Somatic Experiencing, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT). Becca strives to develop growth-fostering relationships with clients through authenticity and mutual empathy. It is in these relationships that clients begin to experience their full authentic selves and create for themselves a life worth living and a home in their communities, their bodies, and the world.
Becca is supervised by Caitlin Heffernan, LCSW-C.
