Rebekah Preston, LPC
As your therapist, I am dedicated to being your partner in understanding and addressing your concerns, setting goals, and identifying your strengths as you strive for healing and growth. In today's uncertain world, I aim to help clients find their footing and navigate their future. I am honored to be a part of your process, both in times of difficulty and times of hope.
My passion for therapy began with a desire to support teens dealing with self-harm, depression, and anxiety. As a therapist, I have also had the opportunity to work with adults facing self-esteem issues, trauma, difficulties with setting boundaries, communication challenges in relationships, and a lack of personal identity and meaning. My goal is to empower both teens and adults who come to me with these concerns to find stability and confidence in their strengths. I also offer faith-based counseling at the client's discretion and have experience addressing religious trauma.
I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Texas. I have a Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The University of Texas. I am trained in EMDR, as well as the Gottman Method, Level 1.
I prioritize compassion, authenticity, and collaboration in our work together to strengthen the counselor-client relationship, which research has identified as a better indicator of success in counseling than any theoretical orientation or set of techniques.
In terms of theoretical orientation, I am drawn to existential and humanistic theories that emphasize the therapeutic relationship and the importance of finding purpose and meaning in one's life. I am trained in EMDR, a therapeutic technique that is aimed at helping individuals process traumatic memories, challenge negative beliefs about themselves, reduce symptoms of PTSD, and improve overall emotional well-being. I also integrate techniques from cognitive-behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and solution-focused therapy to create a tailored and holistic approach to best suit the needs of my clients.
I was raised in Angleton, a town located just south of Houston. In my free time, I enjoy traveling, reading fiction, baking, listening to true crime podcasts, and running. I also appreciate staying in and having a good time with my close friends, husband and my two cats, Navi and Zelda.
