Rebeca Rocha, PhD, LCSW

Portland OR
Rebeca's practice primarily serves a diverse range of young and middle-aged adults hailing from various non-dominant cultures and racial backgrounds. She dedicates time to deeply understand the unique resources, qualities, values, and resilience of each individual under her care. Tailoring her therapeutic approach to meet individual preferences and requirements, Rebeca incorporates evidence-based interventions such as Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Mindfulness. To maximize her community impact, she prioritizes individuals belonging to historically marginalized racial and cultural groups or those with specific cultural needs.
Rebeca is a multiethnic cisgender woman originally from Brazil, holding a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Culture from Universidade de Brasília, Brazil, and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from Arizona State University (ASU). Her doctoral research delved into the long-term ritualistic use of ayahuasca and its correlation with substance use patterns. Rebeca has completed the MDMA-assisted psychotherapy training program by MAPS and Fluence's Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy, requirement to become psilocybin facilitator in Oregon. Throughout her professional journey, Rebeca has acquired extensive experience working with diverse populations, including domestic violence survivors, unaccompanied immigrant and refugee youth, and individuals dealing with trauma, grief, depression, substance use disorders, psychosis, and anxiety.
