Rebecca Bakke, LPC
Rebecca received her Master of Arts degree in Counseling from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, MO in 2008. Prior to joining Napa Valley in 2016, Rebecca worked in outpatient mental health for seven years and in adolescent residential care for one year. Rebecca primarily works with individuals, couples, and families covering a broad range of issues including depression, anxiety, grief/ loss, trauma, interpersonal, family, and work-related problems, as well as issues that surround physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Rebecca’s passion and desire to help others has grown out of her own path to find hope, strength, and meaning in the midst of pain and brokenness. She believes in the process of restoration and desires this for all her clients.
Rebecca has a particularly strong interest in helping those in grief and trauma. She has extensive experience and education in death and dying, trauma, grief, and loss, helping those suffering through their painful experience. She provides specific Level II treatment programming in both EMDR and in Prolonged Grief. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a trauma reprocessing therapy that is designed to lessen the sting and impact of past trauma. Prolonged Grief Therapy (PGT) is a program that helps those who have become lost in their grief over an extended period of time. It offers the opportunity for those individuals to become unstuck and be able to integrate their grief towards a new tomorrow, a hopeful tomorrow.
Rebecca and her husband have three children. She enjoys reading fiction, spending time in nature, and watching her children grow up.
