Rebecca Gessow

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience as a Solution-Focused therapist. My goal is to help my clients, with the the aid of insight and understanding, to make the changes they need to live a better life. I have worked with all age groups but my current focus is adults, and I have a particular passion for helping couples find their way. I have worked in several community mental health settings, as an Integrated Behavioral Health Specialist, in a medical facility, in an agency setting, and in my own private practice. I was a school psychologist before I was a clinical social worker and my knowledge of the individual, and the individual in society, illuminates and informs my practice.

I am happy to work with clients interested in brief therapy and my belief is that sometimes a neutral party is helpful for a few session. Relationships are at the heart of counseling and the foundation of my treatment approach. I always look forward to meeting new clients and I would love to help you with whatever your need is today.

I work only on Sundays only so if you are in need of a Sunday appointment, please feel free to ask for me!

Andrew St. Louis

Hello all! My name is Andrew St. Louis (yes like the city), and I am a Masters level clinician with an MSc degree in Developmental Psychology and Clinical Practice. I received this degree abroad at University College London, where I studied at the Anna Freud Centre in London, England. I have spent the last 5 years working with children and families with severe behavioral needs in helping to address prominent obstacles within different therapeutic settings, such as in homes, schools, detention centers, etc. I like to work collaboratively to help achieve the client’s desired goals through consistency of treatment, all the while creating a safe space to discuss and explore your wants, needs, and challenges.

My background is working with children and young adults from ages 3 to 18, but I have worked with adults (18+) and families within a home setting for the past three years; I have also worked and volunteered with LGBTQIA+ individuals.

If given the chance, I hope to help you on your journey of self-discovery, overcoming trauma, or whatever other obstacles you may be facing!

Andrea Combes

My name is Andrea Combes and I joined Bella Mente with a desire to work therapeutically with individuals and families in an effort to embrace change and process life events. I have worked for over 25 years with children, teens, and adults as a school-based counselor and more recently in a small private practice. I received a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University, a Certificate in Advanced Graduate Studies from Salve Regina College, and was a Licensed Professional Counselor in Connecticut for five years. I am currently working towards meeting the requirements in Rhode Island to be a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LHMC).

The therapeutic relationship provides an opportunity to learn more fully about one’s self and the dynamics that exist within our interpersonal connections; it is a privilege for me to be able to embark on that journey and help impact an individual’s ability to experience transformation and to gain increased satisfaction in life. My counseling style is holistic as I acknowledge the unique characteristics that are present within the many approaches to therapy. This allows for the use of the most appropriate tools as the therapeutic relationship evolves. Most importantly, I approach every client with respect and caring. My goal is to listen to my clients with compassion, to listen to their feelings and concerns, and provide insightful and thoughtful feedback and support.

My areas of specialization include depression, anxiety, trauma, sexual assault and violence, healthy sexual development, personal identity and changes, relationship discord, conflict resolution, loss and grief, and the effects of low self-esteem. My experience within the schools has provided me with the skills and tools to support children and teens as they navigate potential challenges while they grow and mature. I also support adults as they navigate life’s challenges and difficulties. I look forward to providing a welcoming and inclusive therapeutic experience for all.

Anjely Huertas / Bilingual

I am a master’s level Clinical Mental Health Counselor and completed my degree in Rhode Island College.

For those on the journey of self-exploration, start where you are, and I will meet you there. I believe counseling is different for every single individual and I view each individual as a whole being. Thus, in collaboration with you, I create a unique consolidation of integrative methods to guide you on your path to your fullest potential, live a life of meaning and fulfillment, and live in your truth.

As well, instead of treating diverse individuals with methods specifically for one culture, I hope to incorporate and provide culturally aware services. Such as, examining intersections of systems of power such as race, class, gender, religion, sexuality, able body etc., to provide the apt most care to reach your full potential and live authentically.

With a Holistic, Culturally Aware, and Humanistic/Person-Centered approach, I am also influenced by Psychodynamic therapy, Existential therapy, Gestalt therapy, Cognitive Behavioral therapy, Psycho-education, Art therapy, Solution Focused therapy, Narrative therapy, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness-Based Interventions. I have work with a range of concerns including: loss of self-connection, low motivation, family challenges, self-acceptance, personal growth, boundary setting, purpose seeking, anxiety, depression, stress and overwhelm, emotion regulation and expression, life transitions, relationship issues, mood regulation, anger management, authentic living, value exploration and more.

Throughout my work, it’s been amazing to experience many incredible, brave, and beautiful individuals who have guided and aided me to hone my skills, and I am honored to utilize them to guide others. You and I will create a compassionate and safe space to begin your healing, and I am humbled to experience your journey.

Spanish:

Soy Consejera Clínica de Salud Mental de nivel de maestría, y completé mi título en Rhode Island College.

Para aquellos en el camino de la autoexploración, comience donde esté y los encontraré allí. Creo que consejeria es diferente para cada individuo, y veo a cada uno como un ser completo. En colaboración con usted, creo una consolidación única de métodos integrados para guiarlos en su camino hacia su máxima potencial, vivir una vida con significación y satisfacción, y vivir en su verdad.

Además, en lugar de tratar a individuos diversos con métodos específicamente para una cultura, espero incorporar el conocimiento que he aprendido en mi educación y experiencia para brindar servicios con conciencia hacia su cultura. Por ejemplo, examinar las intersecciones de los sistemas de poder como raza, clase, género, religión, sexualidad, cuerpo capaz, etc., para brindar el cuidado más adecuado para alcanzar su máxima potencial y vivir de manera auténtica.

Con un enfoque holístico, culturalmente consciente y humanistica / centrado en la persona, también estoy influenciada por la terapia psicodinámica, terapia existencial, terapia gestalt, terapia conductual cognitiva, terapia artística, terapia centrada en la solución, terapia narrativa, psicología positiva, e Intervenciones Basadas en la Atención Plena. He trabajado con una variedad de inquietudes que incluyen: pérdida de la autoconexión, poca motivación, desafíos familiares, autoaceptación, crecimiento personal, definición de límites, búsqueda de propósitos, ansiedad, depresión, estrés y agobio, regulación y expresión de las emociones, transiciones de la vida, problemas de relaciones, regulación del estado de ánimo, manejo del enojo, vivir auténticamente, exploración de valores y más.

A lo largo de mi trabajo, ha sido maravilloso tener la experiencia de muchas personas increíbles, valientes, y hermosas que me han guiado y ayudado a perfeccionar mis habilidades, y me siento honrada de utilizar mis habilidades para guiar a otros. Usted y yo crearemos un espacio compasivo y seguro para comenzar su sanación, y siento humildad al conoser su camino.
