The hallmarks of Becky’s approach are compassion and communication. Becky works with children, teenagers and families to help them recognize and regulate the emotions they are feeling. When we understand emotion we can communicate our needs and the family system can grow and heal. Becky works with parents and children, both individually and together in sessions. When families are able to communicate their needs and expectations in a healthy way then healing can begin.
Becky graduated with her Master’s Degree in Counseling from Western Seminary Seattle in 1999. She has over two decades of clinical experience in a variety of settings in Seattle and Birmingham. She has worked closely throughout her career with child and adolescent psychiatry assessing and treating mood disorders, anxiety, behavioral problems and trauma.
Becky utilizes a variety of treatment interventions including CBT, DBT skills, developmental therapy, narrative therapy and family systems therapy. This eclectic approach allows the flexibility to meet every child and every family where they are. Becky enjoys working together with children, teens and parents to connect and develop the kind of communication and relationship skills that nourish the growth and development of a child’s true self.
Becky is an Alabama native, a huge Auburn fan, a tennis mom and a twenty-year veteran of JBS Mental Health Center where she currently serves as the Assistant Clinical Director for Children’s Services.
