About Rebekah

“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.”

― Aristotle



Hi there, I am Rebekah Bryson, and I enjoy helping young children through young adults develop strategies to help them be the best version of themselves. I specialize in helping families and children with developmental concerns and managing early childhood behaviors. I work with children to teach them coping skills to calm big emotions. In my work with adolescents and adults, we strive for gaining independence while learning communication skills, problem solving, and conflict resolution. In addition to working to develop individual skills, I also work with parents in determining their parenting style and establishing positive parent/child relationships.

In my approach to counseling, through therapeutic goals we take a top down approach and view the family system as a whole. I use evidence based therapy practices; such as, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Strength-based approaches, and other strategies to help meet the needs of each individual and/or family. We focus on problem solving, identifying underlying concerns, and exploring strategies to address the needs of the each individual. Establishing a rapport by taking time to listen to your child and meeting them where they are is a large part of treatment success.

Who I Help




Although I do not work from a diagnostic label, I have successfully counseled with families and individuals with Adjustment Disorder, Developmental Disabilities, Anxiety, Depression, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and like concerns.

Together, we will create a treatment plan, which fits your goals. My goal is for each individual to become empowered to be the best YOU that you can be.
