REBECCA MCCONNACHIE- OWNER/PARTNER

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Certified Counselor Supervisor

BIO:

Hello, I’m Becki McConnachie.

I have a strong belief in the resilience of people. I believe that everyone has the capacity to heal with support and guidance. Therapeutically, I use an eclectic approach to therapy with a strong cognitive behavioral component; however, I also use other techniques as appropriate.

Professionally, I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a Certified Counselor Supervisor within the state of ND. I have almost 30 years of experience in the counseling field. Equally, I have many years of service as a board member with the ND counseling associations. I hope to use this experience to provide crisis debriefing within our community. Specifically, I am interested in working with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/bereavement, and caregiver support. Other interests include working with couples and providing group therapy.

As a therapist at Beacon Counseling Services, I am excited to guide others on their journey to hope and healing!
