Rebecca Ruda, CMHC
Whether you are wondering how to live with the trauma you have experienced, or whether you struggle with relationship or mental health issues, you are welcome here. I view each of my clients as heroes on their own journey, and the journey begins with learning to regulate emotions and reconnecting with the physical body. Next, we examine and question the thoughts that, when believed, cause suffering. We then dive deep into understanding what is in and out of your control, so that you can be empowered to do what you can, and let go of what is not yours to carry. Finally, we work on crafting a lifestyle that is fulfilling for you, with a focus on honesty and self-care. When these skills are put into practice, it is possible to live a happy life regardless of the circumstances.
I use the work of Byron Katie, IMTT, EMDR, EFT (tapping), ACT, mindfulness, CBT, and the Gottman method in therapy.
