Like many of us, Rebecca’s childhood came with its share of challenges, and some of them, including her parent’s divorce and the arrival of an abusive stepmother into her life, were traumatizing. At an early age, she developed anxiety, depression, panic disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. But when she was thirteen, her therapist did something that changed her life: The therapist told her that she had a choice; she did not have to return to her father’s house if she didn’t want to. Rebecca didn’t know she had a choice until that moment.

It was in being given that choice that Rebecca knew she wanted to help people understand that they too have choices that they may not be seeing yet. Rebecca wanted to give the same gift she had received to others, so she decided to pursue a career in psychotherapy. Rebecca had always been curious about how people became the way they were and how it was best to help them. In the middle of completing her bachelor’s degree, she would need to become a psychotherapist, she stumbled upon the strange and mysterious possibility of becoming a hypnotherapist.

When she explored hypnotherapy, and became a client, the experience was a powerful one, and she was able to overcome many of her biggest challenges. Learning how much power the subconscious mind had over our everyday lives led her to change the direction of her education and her career. With her new found freedom and the lessons learned on her own path to healing, Rebecca began building her philosophy of treatment as a hypnotherapist.

Rebecca graduated in 2018 with Honors from the Hypnosis Motivation Institute. She is a Certified Therapeutic Imagery Master, a favorite of her therapeutic tools. After two years of independent study she added her certification as a Rapid Transformational Therapy Practitioner (RTT) in 2020, which is now central to her practice.

Rebecca specializes in helping clients with empowerment, confidence, self-worth, success, meditation, relationship communication skills and overcoming depression and anxiety. She also helps clients with health and wellness, procrastination, motivation, developing new habits and attracting abundance.

Rebecca employs Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT/Tapping), Law of Attraction processes, Past Life Regression, and more. Her thirst for knowledge that can help her clients succeed makes learning a never-ending adventure at Thrive in Life Hypnosis.
