Rebekah Kao

Are you struggling in a relationship? Do you feel distressed, alone or misunderstood? Are experiences from your past preventing you from having a more fulfilling life. People often come into therapy hoping for change. I believe that inherent in each of us, there is internal strength, wisdom and the capacity for growth. Through a safe and trusting relationship with a therapist, we can begin to open up about our concerns. It is from this process of working through our difficulties and emotions that we can gain insight, strengthen our sense of self and be better able to cope with the struggles that we face. Therapy can guide you towards a more fulfilling life.

My goals as your therapist are to support your growth and healing, and to assist you in making the changes that will lead you to a happier and more authentic life. I use a relational approach to create a safe and nonjudgmental environment, where we can collaborate and work towards your goals.

Many of the clients that I work with struggle with Relationships, Post Traumatic Stress, Depression, Anxiety, or Cross-cultural Issues. I use an integrated approach when working with clients and have received specialized training in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Gottman Method for Couple’s Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Approaches.

I see individuals, couples and families in my private practice. I offer a free initial 20 minutes consultation over the phone or in person if you like to find out more about my work or to get a better sense of whether I would be an appropriate match for you. I look forward to hearing from you and to our possible work together.
