Rebecca Barras

Psychotherapist

Rebecca is a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. She obtained an Honour’s Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Queen’s University, with a special interest in neuroscience, and a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University. She is currently pursuing her licensing with the Biofeedback Certification International Alliance (BCIA) for neurofeedback and has experience working with the brain at the electrical level. 

 

Rebecca believes in looking at the whole person and uses a biopsychosocial approach to psychotherapy. This means considering not just the mental and emotional well-being of an individual, but also emphasizing the role that physical health, social connections, and spiritually have in living a fulfilling life. 

 

Rebecca works with individuals 16+ by utilizing a combination of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), compassion-focused therapy, and autonomic nervous system regulation skills (such as vagus nerve stimulation) to help clients accomplish their goals. 

 

Area of expertise:

- Autonomic Nervous System Regulation

- Trauma Recovery

- Emotion Regulation and Management

- Mood Disorders (anxiety, panic attacks, depression, bipolar disorder)

- Adult ADHD and issues with memory, concentration 

 

Hobbies and Interests: Outside of work, Rebecca can be found hiking with her three year old Australian Shepard, gardening in her veggie garden, or curled up with a blanket and book. Recently, she has found great enjoyment in making delicious soups and breads each week.
