Rebecca Pottenger, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

About The Teacher

With a private psychotherapy practice in Fresno, Rebecca has three decades of practice in the healing arts, leading women’s retreats and research dedicated to helping women reclaim their sense of self, their bodies and authentic voices.

My work with couples draws on experiential exercises that help couples rebuild trust and shift from positions of defensiveness or attack, hurt or frustration, to a place of mutual understanding and increased closeness.  As we address the challenges you bring to the couples setting, you and your partner can learn and practice tools that lead to deeper understanding of yourselves and each other, better communication and a relationship that helps you thrive amid the stresses of life. Wilderness Therapy
Wilderness therapy provides a supported opportunity to discern the difference between perceived and real limits, moving through fear and self-judgment into self-respect and self-care rooted in the on-the-ground experience of self-acceptance, compassion and self-worth.  In the outer challenges we encounter, we find ourselves moved and supported by that which is indestructible and authentic in us.  In wilderness practices, drawing on my therapeutic skills and training in shamanism and wilderness rites of passage, I hold a safe and supportive space for the process of personal growth and have been witness to transformations in
myself and in others at every level  -- mind, heart, soul, and body.
