About The Therapist
My name is Rebecca Stiemens and I am a bilingual (English/Spanish) licensed psychotherapist in the Houston and surrounding areas. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with additional training to provide supervision to other clinicians seeking licensure (LCSW / TX 57211). I am an EMDRIA Certified Therapist (EMDRIA Member ID: 55273690). I am currently seeking certification in my work with couples specifically in Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) and The Gottman Method.
In my 15 plus years of experience I have had the privilege to work with clients of various backgrounds, mental health diagnosis, socio-economic classes, physical & mental abilities who want to overcome self imposed or world imposed barriers in your life that is preventing you from becoming your true BEST self.
My experience in the Houston area includes working as an emergency psychiatric clinical social worker for the HCA network which includes Kingwood Hospital, Conroe Regional Hospital, The Women's Hospital, Bayshore Hospital and other hospitals located in Houston and Greater Houston area. I also have experience as a lung transplant social worker for Texas Children's Hospital, as a kidney transplant clinical social worker for CHI St. Luke's and as a Living Donor Clinical Social Worker for the Living Bank.
I have experience of working in London, UK for nearly 7 years as a manager of a Looked After Children's Team and Children with Disabilities for the London Borough of Camden.
I received my Masters of Social Worker from the University of Houston Graduate School of Social Work in 2006. I completed my internship with the Texas House of Representatives and with Texas Children's Hospital Kidney Transplant team. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Houston - Central Campus in 2002.
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. At the age of 26 I emigrated to London, UK where I had the opportunity to travel western Europe whilst working. I met my husband, Gordon, whilst abroad marrying him 2011. We share our lives and home with our three furry children, Leo, Khaleesi and Lyra! In my spare time I enjoy spending time on walks, reading, riding my cycle and puzzles.
