Becky Lawyer, MA, LPC, LPCC

Becky Lawyer

About Me:

Becky is currently accepting clients who live in Minnesota or Wisconsin, as she is licensed in both states.

Becky believes that one of the bravest things a person can do is to explore and understand their own story. She feels privileged to walk alongside her clients and partner with them as they deepen their understanding of their story. Becky provides a therapeutic space that is safe, supportive, and non-judgemental. That space can help people learn to trust and accept nourishment within a relationship where they feel understood and can grow.

Becky loves working with a variety of clients and client concerns to help them develop new skills, regulate emotions, and express themselves more fully. She works well with trauma, suicidality, and grief following the loss of a loved one to suicide. As a previous college counselor, Becky is drawn to working with adolescents and young adults as they determine their values and what they truly want out of life. Becky also enjoys working with people who may describe themselves as having perfectionist tendencies and those who sacrifice personal needs to meet goals.

Becky loves reading, creating stained glass, and getting lost in nature, which makes walking therapy sessions a great option if you work with her. She also loves to laugh and bring humor into therapy as appropriate. Becky volunteers with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
