Rebekah Preston, LPC Associate
Supervisor: Roxy Riefkohl, PHD, LPC-S
My goal is to journey alongside you as we explore your concerns, develop goals, and discover strengths and resources as you move toward healing, growth, and hope.
As an educator, I worked with a number of students who struggled with issues related to self-esteem, eating disorders, self-harm, depression, and anxiety. These experiences affirmed my passion for mental health and desire to help others. Thus, my areas of focus include adolescent/youth counseling and individual counseling. I also offer faith-based counseling at the client’s preference and discretion.
I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor Intern in the state of Texas. I have a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary, as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The University of Texas. I am also trained in MarriageStrong for groups.
Research has demonstrated that the client-counselor relationship is of primary importance in the counseling process. In fact, a strong therapeutic alliance is a better indicator of success in counseling than any theoretical orientation or set of techniques. Thus, I place great value on working from a place of compassion, authenticity, and collaboration. Theoretically, I am drawn toward the existential and humanistic theories, which put emphasis on purpose/meaning and the therapeutic relationship. However, I also draw techniques from cognitive behavior therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy.
I grew up in Angleton, which is a little south of Houston. In my free time, I enjoy travel, camping, yoga, tutoring, and running. I’m also a homebody and enjoy reading fiction and hanging out with my close friends, husband, and two cats, Navi and Zelda.
“I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love, because you have seen my affliction; you have known the distress of my soul.” Psalm 31:7
