Becca Vermace, LMFTA
Becca Vermace’s Therapist Disclosure Statement <<< (Clickable)
Over my time as a therapist, I have come to view the therapeutic process and relationship as a collaborative one. I operate from a systems perspective which means when working with clients, I consider and help them process how all their relationships and the greater systems (culture, race, capitalism etc.) at play are influencing their lives. I am a very relational oriented person and I know first-hand how important the relationships we have in our lives influence our mental health. This has shaped my passion for helping families and couples better their relationships and feel safe, connected, and satisfied within those relationships.
Some of my counseling techniques are drawn from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I believe that every client is different and has different needs, and thus it is important to me to have access to a wide variety of techniques that I can draw upon to be the most help to my clients. Life can be very difficult, and my ultimate goal for our time together is to come alongside of you to help ease your burdens and create that positive, lasting change you desire.
I look forwarding to connecting with you!
In my free time, I enjoy spending quality time with my husband, my friends, and my parents. I am a lover of meeting new people, traveling, trying new foods, riding my bike, playing card games, and cuddling with my cat.

Q&A with Becca
1.) Some therapists are more comfortable addressing the immediate problem, while others want to focus on the deeper issue. Which are you?
I like to focus on the deeper issues or “the root” because I am under the impression that if we get to the root of the problem and address that, then typically the “symptoms” or immediate problems will also be resolved. I want to help clients reach permanent solutions not “band aid fixes”.
2.) Do you tend to lead the session, or follow my lead?
In a first session I will lead. After the first session I will follow client’s lead. If I notice that a client is feeling stuck or distracted etc. I will typically jump in and help lead.
3.) What are your strengths as a therapist?
I believe my strengths as a therapist include clear communication, showing clients that I understand their experience through empathetic listening, highlighting and drawing out client’s strengths, being direct, and not being afraid to say the hard things or challenge people.
4.) If you had one superpower, what would it be and why?
If I had any superpower, I would want to be able to understand what animals are saying and communicate with them.
5.) What makes you laugh?
Funny cat videos, ironic moments, and times where I make silly mistakes.
6.) Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive?
My biological father
