An Introduction to Becca Gerlach at Being Human Group
If you’re looking for a therapist who you can get real with, you have come to the right place! I started this practice to provide support for real people with a variety of struggles. Being Human Group wants to help you be fully and authentically human-with the full range of emotions and experiences that comes with that. Life is not always easy, we’re here to help you through and good, the bad and the times in between!
I began working as a therapist after completing my MSW degree at Wayne State University in 2012. Initially I worked with teens and adults struggling with substance use, anxiety and trauma. While I have continued that work, I have expanded my practice to work with queer and trans people on their journeys. I am a WPATH trained therapist, as well as a Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Certified Trauma and Resilience Therapist and I’m working on a Certified Sex Therapist education plan now. I’m a PhD student at Institute for Clinical Social Work, and love learning.
When I’m not working or studying, I can be found with my kiddos and partner, my friends, or trying to find some time by myself to read or binge Netflix series! I love being outside when it’s warm and tend to hibernate in the winter.
I’ve worked through my own healing journey, and I know how hard it can be. Healing isn’t pretty-it’s often painful. The other side though-it’s amazing. I want to help you move through to the other side. We can’t change the past, but we can change the intensity of the pain you feel and we can create new stories and narratives together. I provide a trauma informed, holistic lens to this work.
Being Human can be so hard-we are here to normalize this experience and to help you live a full, authentic life. If you’re struggling with life transitions, relationships, depression, anxiety or addiction, call, text or email today! I’m here and ready to help you walk through your own healing journey!
