We're a diverse group of therapists from various backgrounds and disciplines with one central goal - to provide quality mental health care as an ally toward your wellness. 

Rebecca Thipsingh, LCSW, TCT
she/her/hers

With a Masters of Social Work from the University of New England, Rebecca has practiced as an outpatient therapist for more than 6 years. In 2018, she became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida, and after being inspired by a former client, received her board certification from ITCA as a Transgender Care Therapist in 2019. Rebecca is a strong advocate who founded Allies in Wellness, LLC in response to the unmet needs of transgender and gender expansive individuals and their families in the Brevard County area.

 

Rebecca works with

  • adults,

  • adolescents,

  • preteens, and

  • families who want to

  • embark on a journey of self-exploration,

  • improve mood and behavior regulation,

  • increase self-worth and coping skills, and

  • heal from trauma.

 

She uses

  • cognitive behavioral therapy,

  • DBT - informed individual therapy and skills development,

  • ERP for OCD 

  • motivational interviewing,

  • supportive and solution-focused therapy,

  • mindfulness and,

  • cognitive processing therapy (CPT) for PTSD

She is a behaviorist at heart who strongly believes that the power to live the life you want comes from within. She will work together along side you to solve current problems, she may help you identify how you interact with your environment and how your environment interacts with you. At times she'll be a validating and supportive ear for you to process difficulties or challenges that may arise during your time working together. Some work may look at your family of origin, life experience, story, unique journey, and how this picture has shaped you.

Rebecca takes a holistic approach to therapy by looking at each aspect of her clients’ lives. She objectively views their world to help them lay the groundwork to heal and navigate it; build support; and gain knowledge, insight, and authenticity. As Rebecca would say, “With insight, a person can own all they do.”

 

Rebecca is a gender therapist who also specializes in treating anxiety disorders, mood disorders, depression, trauma, and other behavioral concerns.

Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern
They/Them/Theirs

Are you feeling disconnected from yourself? Do you want to learn to build a better relationship with yourself, your mind and body?

Let’s collaborate to deepen your connection with your authentic self!  You know yourself, your history and circumstances best, and I have a tool box full of strategies to help you build your foundation and grow. I understand learning about yourself and loving yourself is a process that takes time, compassion, and support.

I am a Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Massage Therapist, and Yoga Teacher; I have also worked as a domestic abuse survivor advocate, case manager, and disaster survivor assistant. I use my trainings and an intersectional approach to help people deepen their connection with their whole self by integrating mind and body through a process grounded in affirming exploration. 

 

The interventions I use are eclectic, experiential and evidence based.  I specialize in working with people who are LGBTQPIA+, as well as friends, partners, family members and allies. My passion is co-creating and fostering safe(r) and explicitly affirming spaces for people who are Transgender, Nonbinary and Gender Nonconforming. I offer gender affirming services, including assessments and referral letters for folks looking for this support. 

I look forward to meeting with you and am excited to accompany you on your journey.
