Rebekah B Weymes is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, who has practiced in a variety of capacities since she earned her Master's degree of Social Work in 2002 from the University of Maryland in Baltimore, including extended work in Northeast England as well as volunteer work in Ireland and Guatemala.

Despite the serious nature of issues that lead many individuals to seek counseling, sessions with Rebekah are creative and collaborative, fostering hope and compassion. Rebekah draws from various parts-based approaches as well as from cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused practice, motivational interviewing and mindfulness-based practices.
Using dramatherapy, inner-dialogue and other experiential-based methods to help clients reframe and re-route their habitual reaction to stressors, sessions can include meditation, writing, and drawing, particularly those with children and teens.
Rebekah brings about improved understanding of complex psychological struggles by using simple explanations and quirky analogies and aims to help her clients further their understanding of their unique inner world, leading them to feel educated and empowered to make choices towards an improved future.
Rebekah primarily sees adults, but also sees children and adolescents. She provides individual, couples and relationship counseling, offering support in a variety of areas, including (but not limited to):
- parenting & children's behavioral support
- grief & loss
- anxiety & panic attacks
Rebekah also supports individuals involved in addiction recovery as well as those impacted by loved ones and friends with addiction issues.
