I have known Rebecca Rawczak for a year through peer supervision. I have been impressed by her compassion, caring nature and desire to help her clients meet their goals and feel better. She is a skilled therapist and insightful about what will work most effectively for her clients. She is also funny and supportive. I have and feel no reservation in continuing to refer clients to her.


I have known Rebecca Rawczak as a colleague for several years. She is an exceptional therapist who brings genuine warmth, insight, and understanding into her work with clients. Her skill and knowledge of the mental health field stand out amongst our peers. She is truly as empathetic and caring as she is smart and perceptive. I have and will continue to recommend her to people as I know they will be in good hands.


Rebecca is a caring therapist who has years of experience treating individuals with depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. She is great at helping clients gain the skills that they need to overcome the struggles and obstacles that they experience. When I have referred clients to her in the past, I felt confident that she would attend to their clinical needs and help them accomplish their goals.
