Dr. Rebecca Hern joins us today as we're digging into depression and the link to infertility.
Dr. Hern is a licensed, clinical psychologist who works in private practice in St. Paul, Minnesota. She completed her doctorate in clinical psychology in 2014 at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology, after having completed a 2,000-hour APA-accredited internship at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.
She went on to complete her Postdoctoral Residency at Hazelden Betty Ford and has continued to work in the field of addiction since that time. Given the high rates of co-occurring disorders with addiction and the relational impact of addictive disorders, Dr. Hern has gained expertise in treating and educating others about a wide spectrum of experiences.
In particular, the high correlation between addiction and trauma has led her to become specially trained in EMDR therapy, which has been demonstrated to effectively and rapidly address trauma, depression, anxiety, and numerous other mental health concerns.
She has come to appreciate the importance of understanding presenting concerns from a functional perspective, and not just treating symptoms, but understanding and addressing the underlying roots. This often involves assisting people with compassionately looking at the evolution of their symptoms over time, and the role of cultural, relational, trauma, medical, nutritional, and spiritual factors.
Clients often share that they appreciate being able to dig deeper in understanding themselves in their work with Dr. Hern. You can connect with Dr. Hern on Instagram at @dr.rebeccalynn, where she shares some of her key insights and knowledge acquired through her work as a clinical psychologist.
