Rebecca Demi

LCAT, MS Licensed Psychotherapist

It's never too late for a new beginning. Is it time for you to plant seeds for your future growth and listen to what's emerging within, rather than watering the old, tired cycles of objectifying, criticizing and judging?

My formal education is a B.F.A. from Marymount Manhattan College where I trained with dance artists & performers in NYC as a modern dance choreography concentration. I wholeheartedly believe 'Knowledge Is Power' and I needed to know how the merging of creative media (music, art, dance) is a supply of medicine for body, mind and spirit.

My Master in Science degree is from Pratt Institute where I studied with experts in the somatic & creative psychotherapy field: clinicians recognizing how the use of non-verbal embodied communication has rewiring effects on a range of human conditions.

I also am a lifelong student of Kundalini and Hatha yoga leading me to blend Emotionally Focused Therapy/Tapping, bioenergetics and Internal Family Systems into my therapeutic apparatus.

Our sessions can focus on the 'here-and-now' while also examining what's happening below the surface on a felt-sense level. We can explore how past patterning and behaviors are subconsciously and unconsciously influencing your day-to-day functioning and overall identity.

This psychodynamic understanding of Self will ultimately restore your sense of awareness, competency, expanded self-expression, and development of inner wisdom.

As a somatic psychotherapist, working with adults & adolescents, on spectrums of both neurotypicality and neurodiversity, I am a lifelong seeker of effective modalities informing our most subtle energy body & micro-movements to enhance communication skills & deepen connection.

Even when we are still (or static) our authentic identities can shine through.

Sessions are dynamic and ever-changing based on the 'here-and-now' however my intention is to always clearly articulate a psychotherapeutic intent within the cyclical, spiraling, and growing alliance we establish.

Before You Contact Me

I worked for 5 years treating clients experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, disordered eating, relationship issues, autoimmune disorders, physical injury, autism spectrum disorder, and those in crisis states of mental health on both inpatient psychiatric & mobile crisis units. At Bellevue Hospital Center, I was the primary rehabilitation counselor on their medical-psychiatric unit. Most recently, I am in my final training weekend (June 2023) of my Level 1 Trauma Certification, and I work at a private school treating children with neurodiverse needs & abilities.
