Rebecca Solodovnic


Rebecca earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, after which she built a career in Human Resources. In her role as Vice President of Human Resources, she worked with employees to develop their communication skills, effectively mediate conflict, develop wellness techniques to combat stress, and to identify strengths and passions in order to succeed in internal career pivots and sometimes external career changes. This work encouraged Rebecca to reflect upon her own life and realize that she wanted to be a therapist.  She went back to school for her master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling at New York University. 

Rebecca was born in the USSR and came to the United States with her family in 1979. Rebecca’s own experiences with chronic illness, family relationships, career change, and other difficult situations has helped inform her practice. She enjoys hiking, exploring NYC on foot and watching movies. A mindfulness-focused therapist, she likes to start her day being present in the moment with a great cup of coffee. She has a certification in anger management and crisis intervention from the National Anger Management Association and she is trained in emotionally focused therapy from the New York Center of Emotional Focused Therapy.

Approach & Values

Rebecca’s therapeutic approach draws from an integration of cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies combined with mindfulness and psychodynamic elements. When counseling couples, Rebecca draws from an emotionally focused therapeutic approach. She works with clients to navigate through their issues, build up their courage, identify their strengths and opportunities, and improve upon their relationship with themselves and others. She provides her clients with the tools they need to reach their goals. Building trust with her clients and creating a safe, non-judgmental space where any topic can be discussed is of the utmost importance. Rebecca provides therapy in both English and Russian.
