Rebecca Ingalls

(MS, LPC-S)

About Me

Welcome! It is my honor and privilege to work as a therapist. I have worked in the field of counseling for 25 years, offering supports in the areas of personal development, professional coaching and self-advocacy. My graduate studies were in the area of Cognitive Behavior Therapy and doctoral work in the are of Cultural Diversity and Inclusivity.

Counselor - As a therapist working with individuals, providing a safe space where a client can be open in sharing their story, exploring their life and reflecting on positives and negatives is my goal. I like the term 'naturally therapeutic' as people find the approach supportive, helpful and meaningful. Identification of concerns, development of goals and implementation of new strategies and skills are a helpful sequence for growth. Some counseling modalities supportive of these strategies include Person-Centered Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavior Therapy,.

Coach - As a therapist working with individuals, there is often a connection between a clients personal issues and their professional development. This may become a good opportunity to look at professional growth and for development of career goals. Linking these to personal objectives can provide opportunities for generalization of skills into the world of work and positive growth professionally. Additional to other therapies, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Mentalization Based Therapy are helpful tools.

Consultant - Many individuals have identified special needs, specifically ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism, etc. While they may have developed coping skills and strategies, as one moves into the world of work, relationships and family life, new skills and strategies may be needed. Self- advocacy is an important skill and strategy for higher education and working environments. My work as a special education specialist and advocate can help adults become skilled and empowered into adult circumstances. Some modalities might include those mentioned above or additionally Solution-Focused Brief Therapy and Psychological Testing and Evaluation would be useful to consider.

Working with teens has been a passion for many years. While counseling in private practice, I also counseled school age clients from elementary through high school. Teens are often described as the 'identified client' but one of my favorite juvenile court judges once said, "When you see a kid in trouble, it's like seeing a turtle on a fence post. You have to know that kid did not get there by themselves."

Teens are part of systems which may be failing them. A family system might be at risk and the teen may suffer. A school system might be failing and the teen may suffer. A peer group might be a danger and the teen may suffer.

A largely under-served teen group is counseling for those with Special Needs. ADHD, Learning Disabilities, Sensory-Processing Disorders, Emotional Disturbances, Autism and others can be assisted with counseling. Self Advocacy is also a great skill which can be developed in teens. Common therapeutic services might include Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming, to name a few.

Kids are also extremely resilient.

Helping teens identify underlying causes of their symptomatic behavior, exploring with them goals and objectives and engaging support systems to help them implement these goals and objectives are useful strategies for empowering kids.

I welcome the opportunity to spend time in talk with your teenagers. Working with the parent(s), school and other supports, kids can get back on track and achieve their hearts desires.

Rebecca Ingallas... let's just say I’ve seen many counselors in my time and she is easy to talk, and open up to (that is huge for me as I am an introvert and don’t open up to anyone). She has shined light on areas that others have failed to see! Absolutely amazing! I can count the number of people that I’ve opened up to on one hand and she is one of them!!

Written by D.E. on Aug 24, 2019 after counseling with Rebecca for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I have been working with Rebecca for a couple of months now. When I signed up for counseling I was suffering with anxiety, panic attacks and depression and had hit a real low point. I had become overwhelmed by a complex life situation that I just couldn’t figure out and felt I needed professional help.

Rebecca has made a huge difference and continues to make a positive impact on my recovery. She is able to both listen and prompt with thought provoking and challenging questions to help us get to the heart of the matter and start to unpick things from there. She emphasizes and encourages self care and I feel so much more healthy and balanced as a result.

We chat once a week and the flexibility of phone sessions and a wide variety of appointment times means I can fit around my schedule. Rebecca also encouraged me to journal regularly and will respond to messages promptly so I know I have support there when I need it. I regularly receive articles that relate to my situation or techniques of dealing with stressful situations.

I feel Rebecca understands and cares and would be happy to recommend her.

Talking to Rebecca is like talking to an old friend. She has such a compassionate, kind voice, I instantly found I could open up to her. She is a wonderful listener and gives practical advice. I have always struggled finding the time to fit in therapy appointments but since I found teen counseling I can schedule sessions when it works for me.
