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.
