Rebecca Papadinis, LMHC
Rebecca graduated from Lindsey Wilson College with a M.Ed. in Professional Counseling and Human Development in Lexington, KY. After practicing in a small private practice and an adult day treatment program she moved to New England with her family. She worked in a community agency for four years as a clinician, program coordinator and most recently a program director of a local in-home therapy program for children and families. It is her passion for the clinical work and connecting with others which has inspired her to leave community mental health administration and open this private practice which focuses on wellness, the whole person and a calm nurturing place to explore oneself.
As a clinician Rebecca comes from a person-centered, strengths based approached and connects most with the Adlerian theory of the human experience. She believes that every person is unique and experiences the world in their own way. She also believes that each person has internal motivation to reach their fully actualized selves, and it is when barriers and obstacle presents themselves in a person’s life that causes them to feel symptoms of anxiety and depression which causes the person to become stuck in a cycle of ineffective behaviors, and thought patterns. We all have control over the way relationships, beliefs and the world around us, affect us, and believes that with empowerment all people can experience the process of “the good life”. Rebecca believes in building upon our individual strength in order to help us overcome these negative experiences and continue in the process to a content life; and that reflecting on our past experiences, reactions and outcomes can help move us through our ever changing and times difficult to manage lives.
In addition to traditional talk therapy, Rebecca uses a wide variety of interventions to best suit the needs of each person she sees. She often uses guided imagery, relaxation techniques, aromatherapy, behavioral activation, play therapy, expressive art therapy, CBT, DBT, and pulls from additional theoretical orientations such as Gestalt, Existentialism, Jungian.
She believes that the key to successful therapy is a genuine, safe and judgement free therapeutic relationship in which interventions, and modalities of therapy are a way to put the relationship into action. She believes in working alongside of the people she sees and utilizing their expertise of themselves, their families and their children as a way to most effectively reach goals and continue through life’s journey. She focuses her practice in re-connecting the mind and the body, and approaching the whole person rather than their symptoms. She has a wide breadth of knowledge and experience with many mental health concerns and specialized in anxiety, depression, bereavement and grief, infertility and pregnancy loss, family conflict, behavioral and emotional concerns in children, parent coaching, women’s issues and works closely with the LGBTQA community, especially children who identify as transgender and adolescents and young adults who are navigating their sexuality.
