About Me

Rebecca Congdon, LMSW

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site, but more importantly for taking the first step toward positive change. Anxiety disorders can develop from a combination of biological factors, personality, and life experiences. Anxiety can be debilitating and rob you from everyday pleasures of life. It has become my life passion to help bring a sense of wellness and balance to those struggling with anxiety.

My name is Rebecca Congdon, and I’m a Licensed Social Worker (LMSW) in the state of Michigan. I have over 12 years of clinical experience working extensively in a multitude of mental health and medical settings with families and individuals around issues of mental health, chronic illness, substance use, adjustment to illness, coping, loss, and disability. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology at Michigan State University in 2003 followed by my Master’s in Social Work at Wayne State University in 2007.

I have seen the mental and emotional toll anxiety can take on one’s life. However, I believe we, as humans, are incredibly resilient – and anxiety is treatable! Anxiety is not a “one-size fits all” illness. Together, we will develop an individualized treatment plan approach that suits you. In my practice, I utilize a mindfulness integrated cognitive behavioral therapy approach (CBT) to beat anxiety. Research has proven both mindfulness and CBT to be effective in treating anxiety and panic disorders.

As a therapist, I don’t believe in just “talk therapy.” To see true improvements in quality of life, we need to use skill-focused treatments (such as mindfulness and CBT). CBT is short-term focused, allowing you to enjoy your life again, usually in a matter of months, rather than years. My therapeutic approach is both compassionate and goal oriented. Sometimes we even add a little humor. Together, we will work to provide you with life-long tools that you will learn to cultivate in your daily life. I understand that making the first call is often the most difficult part. I can assure you a welcoming and safe environment.
