About Rebekah Stearns

Helping you find healing from
trauma and PTSD

Hello, and welcome!

I’m Rebekah, a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional. I help people overcome traumatic experiences and lessen disruptive symptoms of PTSD, like anxiety, depression, irritability, stress, anger, and panic attacks.

Like most people, I’ve had my fair share of trauma and even from an early age, I knew I wanted to help others through theirs. 

In a somewhat roundabout journey—that included working as a Federal Police Officer and EMT ambulance driver on the Yukon-Alaska border—I found my way to my current career as a therapist while raising a family, and soon-to-be finishing my doctoral degree.

My personal and professional experiences have led me to primarily work with teens and adults who are former military, law enforcement, EMT workers, nurses, prison guards, or rape and molestation victims.

My goal is to bring hope and healing to everyone I have the chance to help.

With me, you can expect a direct approach that’s effective, efficient, and intended to last.

You may be struggling with:

  • Feeling like you’re going crazy
  • Not sleeping through the night
  • Anxiety, depression, irritability, anger
  • Inability to maintain relationships 
  • Difficulty focusing at work
  • Persistent panic attacks 
  • Zoning out or disassociating
  • Reckless or risky behaviors 

Methods I may use to help:

  • Narrative Exposure Therapy
  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy
  • Compassion-focused
  • Solution-focused 
  • Positive Psychology
  • Christian Counseling

Whether your trauma was experienced first-hand, you witnessed it happening to another person, or heard about someone else’s trauma, I can help you find healing.

FAQs:

If you have insurance, then GreenpointMed, Inc. will bill them for you, and you will be charged the co-payment after each session.  You will be responsible for the balance if your insurance company does not cover the cost.

If you do not have insurance, then there is a Cash Services option ($75 for your first 60- min. session) and then $50 (for all subsequent sessions). 

This can be paid via cash, check, or credit card and payments will receive a receipt.

There is a sliding fee application for those who qualify, and it is based upon income and household size.

Yes, clients book their own appointments in their Client Portal.

You can book up to 52 weeks in advance. I would book ahead now. You can always cancel appointments in the Client Portal, too, if needed.

You can type a note that asks for Telehealth when you book the appointment or email me and ask that your sessions be telehealth. I usually check my waiting room and if clients are not there, then I log into the Client Portal to see if they are there instead.

I have a billing team, GreenPointMed, and they bill your insurance company for you.

Let me help you find the healing you’ve long deserved.
