Rebecca L. Cohen, EdD, LPC – Licensed Professional Counselor

I am a private practice licensed professional counselor serving clients in and around Montgomery, Alabama, as well as online from across the state. As your therapist, it is my priority to create a therapeutic atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change, for you. I have worked for 20 years in social services, education and therapy/counseling fields. I have experience working with a variety of mental health issues and have worked with children, teens, adults and couples. I look forward to working with you to addresses your challenges and realize your goals. Therapy is a process that can move you toward being the healthiest version of yourself and living the life you desire.

Treatment Approach

I use a variety of approaches to address my clients unique needs. Many successful treatment plans will utilize a foundation of adlerian, cognitive/cognitive-behavioral, dialectical behavior therapy, psychoeducational, reality, solution-focused brief therapy therapy then quickly move toward a tailored treatment plan and approach that includes tools to help sustain the growth experienced in regular therapy. I also offer the ability to add “homework” to your treatment so that you can get emails with worksheets and information that will help you to continue to make progress between your sessions.

Additionally, there is a growing body of research that supports the practice of self-compassion and mindfulness in psychotherapy. Neuroscience research reveals individuals that practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal painful memories from the past. It is my honor and mission to help my clients move past what’s blocking them from reaching their full potential individually and in their relationships.

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
