  • About Rebecca Burrett

    Thank you for visiting my page! I got my start in the field of social work in 2001 and have served many diverse causes throughout my career, including LGBTQIA+ healthcare, affordable housing, and hospital-based crisis support. I specialized in social justice while earning my master’s in social work at the University of Maryland Baltimore, and now I have over a decade of clinical experience working with individuals, families, and couples.

    I started my work as a therapist by receiving extensive training in couples’ dynamics and strategies to improve intimacy. I’ve been a yoga instructor (RYT-500) since 2009 and I am passionate about understanding the many ways in which our bodies and minds connect for healing, so my focus as a therapist is somatically-based. I specialize in the processing of recent and past traumas using EMDR, with particular interests in treating phobias and working with those who’ve survived childhood abuse, neglect, or intimate partner violence.

    My therapy practice is psychodynamically oriented, and I have completed postgraduate training in Attachment-Focused EMDR, the Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT level 2), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I am also a certified EMDR therapist and Consultant-in-Training through the EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).

    My Approach

    My approach to therapy sessions is non-judgmental and compassionate. With every individual or couple I see, my aim is to assist them as they navigate their contexts at their own pace, in the direction of insight and healing. My clients include therapists, trauma survivors, and first responders.

    I know from experience that it can be very hard to overcome our habituated ways of thinking. I am psychodynamically oriented and I work relationally and directively; my intention will always be to support you as you explore deeper parts of yourself that are easier to visit when you have someone else beside you.

    I have benefited so much from the expertise of others: mentors, therapists, teachers, and more. I have been trained to understand each individual and the many contexts they inhabit — racial, cultural, generational, and historical — and to be attuned to the many subtle ways in which past and present life circumstances may impact feelings of safety, authenticity, and wholeness.

    I believe the way we approach ourselves and our hardships will never be perfect. Our work together will be to better understand the lens through which you see yourself and your world as we work towards achieving an increased sense of ease and fulfillment in your life.
