My name is Rebecca Ford Auble. I'm a psychotherapist in the Squirrel Hill section of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After providing therapy to individuals, couples, and family members for over fifteen years, I've learned that when we consider therapy, we're seeking two important things: understanding and help. When we're troubled, we often feel alone in our lives--that no one truly understands our feelings or experiences, not even our family and friends. Thus, we seek to be understood--to have someone in our lives who "gets" us. And we also need someone to help us to better understand ourselves and why things are happening the way they are. But understanding, by itself, is not enough. We're looking for practical help, too, in the best ways to use our new understanding to improve ourselves and our lives. As an interactive, solution-focused therapist, my treatment approach is to provide empathic support, issues clarification and insight, and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. The enduring goal of my practice is to offer a refuge where each individual nurtures his/her personal growth and develops a meaningful, satisfying life which expresses this growth.
Blending Cognitive Behavioral and Psychodynamic Therapies, I draw on a variety of strategies and techniques incorporated in a way which is most beneficial for each client. These two therapies uniquely complement each other in providing a comprehensive and effective therapeutic experience for my clients.
