PSYCHOTHERAPY SESSIONS:

Rebecca’s clinical focus is on helping adult female identified dancers develop healthy relationships with their bodies and food. She guides clients in reconnecting with their bodies, often using the process of “embodiment,” a multilayered awareness of your body and how you connect to or relate to the world around you. Through the holistic practices of mind- body awareness, Rebecca educates her clients on how their emotions may sometimes be reflected through physical symptoms, often called psychosomatic symptoms.

Working with Rebecca, clients also receive guidance on eating in a self attuned way to manage disordered eating behaviors. She works from the Health at Every Size (HAES) perspective and helps clients understand the internal and external factors that contribute to disordered eating, body image issues and problems with self esteem.

Dancers are always on display, whether taking recreational classes at the studio or at rehearsal and especially during performances. Outside of the dance world, there’s the everyday societal expectations of how our bodies should be. Rebecca is familiar with the unique challenges dancers face on and off stage.

PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT COACHING SESSIONS:

With her background in mental health and Applied Sports and Performance Psychology, Rebecca offers individual and group coaching sessions to adult dancers. Coaching sessions are available to help dancers of all levels achieve improved overall performance, using mental skills training.

Enhanced performance coaching sessions are individually tailored to the unique needs of each individual or group. The focus is not on the skill or technique, rather it’s on the psychological or mental aspects that may be hindering the dancer from performing at their intended level. Rebecca provides assistance in areas such as performance anxiety, perfectionism, injury and burnout prevention as well as performance identity and related areas.


Message to clients

MENTAL HEALTH/ THERAPY INFORMATION:

Clients who work with me are interested in getting to the root of their issues. They want to unpack all the pieces of their problems in a meaningful way. This often entails spending time talking about and looking into your feelings and common themes in your relationships, both with others and how you relate to yourself. This includes your experiences from the past and present. In our work together, we’ll get a sense of different patterns of behaviors, feelings and thoughts that have developed over time for you. We look at the whole picture and examine elements that are helpful to understand your process of healing, change or personal growth. The structure of sessions are open, in that clients are encouraged to speak freely about things that come to mind for them. As your therapist, I serve as a guide to help you develop clarity in areas that may be difficult to understand. You are the expert in your life.

This coaching service is to improve or enhance the performer's ability to execute their craft at an enhanced performance. Coaching cannot substitute for, and is not an alternative to, medical or other healthcare diagnosis. To learn more about working with me for coaching please contact me.
