Hi there! I'm Rebekkah Witten (she/her), and I am on a quest to help people be happier, healthier, more engaged, and more connected – to themselves, their families, and the world around them! I love a challenge and am delighted to wade in wherever a creative problem-solver, radical listener, or “roll-up-her-sleeves” do-er is needed. I am passionate about integrative mental health, nature-based healing, and social justice. My goal in life is to be a force for good - and to find some fun all along the way!

I believe we are all, to some extent, the natural product of our experiences and environment. I also believe that with enough knowledge, practice, and support, we all have the capacity to grow beyond those survival strategies. My talent is helping you build a life full of personal empowerment, vibrant authenticity, and deeply nourishing relationships, no matter where you're starting from. I want you to feel well-supported as you do this difficult work, so I have a trauma-informed, collaborative, integrative style based on the principles of humanistic, relational, and transpersonal psychology, and heavily influenced by evolving neuroscience. My work with clients is rooted in curiosity, compassion, and courage, and I specialize in blending modern, evidence-based techniques with ancient wisdom through practices like mindfulness, radical acceptance, yoga, rituals, connection to nature, and expressive movement or art... depending on what interests you.

My free time is spent with my family, playing games of all kinds, and learning to do everything I can from scratch.


To develop my professional techniques, I studied with the University of Louisville's Kent School of Social Work, the University of California San Diego's Mindfulness-Based Professional Training Institute, the Gottman Institute, the folks at Subtle Yoga, and the Mindful Ecotherapy Center. I have also invested (literally) thousands of hours in reading professional research journals and books, attending training workshops and seminars, and consulting with peers and colleagues to expand my knowledge and skills. And while therapy and coaching are different services, the skills and knowledge that make me a great therapist also happen to make me a great coach!  

I accumulated more than 11 years of experience providing clinical psychotherapy as well as leadership for rural behavioral health teams before launching THRIVAPY in 2023. I remain committed to furthering the growth of the mental health field by providing supervision to prelicensure social workers as well as consultation to licensed clinicians in my states.
