Becki has spent much of her counseling career assisting those who are youth aged and assessing clients in crisis. She is certified in Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) and has led groups on substance use, anger management, and life skills.

Becki received the calling to enter the counseling field after spending 25 years in media when she was diagnosed, treated for, and survived breast cancer. The experience took her to a place of great suffering and also put her around others who were suffering and needed help, especially with the mental and emotional toll that a cancer diagnosis can cause. While God has not led her to work with cancer patients in particular, it has become clear that just about any of life's situations can cause mental and emotional challenges and she feels called to meet people in their difficulty.

When not working, Becki enjoys watching her teenage son play soccer, basketball, and baseball. Becki attends Pathway Community Church.
