Rebecca Stein is a psychotherapist who graduated Phi Betta Kappa from The University of Georgia, and later went on to receive her graduate degree from The University of Southern California. She has personally experienced the powerful benefits of connecting with others and using the arts to ameliorate her own chronic pain. She is a firm believer in the mind-body connection.
She credits her trainings at The Relational Center to providing her with greater insight into the biological and psychological healing effects of connection and creative expression. She also credits The Pain Psychology Center for teaching her a combination of psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and somatic therapies to aid in treating chronic pain. She combines these two experiences to influence how she works with teens suffering from chronic pain. At chyp, Rebecca co-facilitates teen and caregiver support groups under the supervision of Diana Taylor, PhD. Rebecca currently provides individual psychotherapy for teens and adults with chronic pain, as well as their respective caregivers, at Thomas J. Pier Therapy. Rebecca continues to see patients for short-term Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) at UCLA Medicine & Pediatrics.
