Welcome! My name is Rebecca Hunt (though I go by Becky) and I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) in the state of Ohio. My 14+ years of previous social work and counseling experience include early intervention casework, play therapy with children and families, group work for teenagers, child welfare counseling and case management for children and adults, parenting support, ADHD support for families and children, and case management for homeless individuals with acute medical illness. I focused on Social Work in Children and Families as well as Military Social Work during my master’s program at USC and have a passion for working with those, both children and adults, who have experienced trauma. I am a Catechist at my local Catholic Church and believe that spirituality is life changing for those open to the experience.
I believe that wellness includes many factors of a person's life--mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health. I believe that many people and families have the ability to manage any situation or challenge with a combination of existing strengths and learning of new skills. In counseling, I use a combination of CBT, solution focused, and problem-solving therapy, along with Motivational Interviewing, trauma therapies, and (yes even) Play Therapy when appropriate. I believe individualized and family plans, when developed in your words, are a great road map for reaching your desired destination. Seeking help reflects the courage and drive that you already have within you. I look forward to our working together.

Rebecca is wonderful to talk with. She makes me feel at ease and safe opening up about my struggles or issues. Rebecca has a way of helping me to look at my thoughts/situations in a new light, using Biblical and pop culture references to reinforce a new idea or way of thinking. I look forward to speaking with her each week. Her guidance has helped me tremendously over the last few months and I look forward to the progress I know I can make still with her as supporter and encourager. I am forever grateful that I found her at the time I did!
I love that Rebecca is relatable. She truly listens and always has ideas on how we (I) can improve in the areas I struggle.
Rebecca has been instrumental in one of the biggest transitions in my life and I am grateful. Not only did she give sound counsel but she enlightened my perspective. I’m still a work in progress and she has been a great sounding board as I continue to grow.
I like Becky a lot and wouldn’t cope with out her.
She's the best! Very helpful.
Rebecca is understanding, supportive and her insights reaffirmed my worth and the empathy that I should have toward myself. Even in complex situations, she provides sound-simple truths. Providing me with sustainable tools that can be utilized long after the sessions are complete.
She pushes me and often asks me to clarify what I mean, which helps her understand better and is probably good for me, too. She also encourages me to be gracious to myself for improving slowly, and is kind enough to put up with my negativity. I appreciate her!
