Rebecca Gillett was educated at Erikson Institute and Loyola University in a combined Master’s degree in child development and social work.

Rebecca has been working with children and families in a wide variety of settings since 2006, including work at a therapeutic school for young children. There, she gained in-depth experience treating school-age children with emotional and behavioral disorders, both individually and in groups.

At Erikson’s Center for Children and Families, Rebecca has been providing counseling services, addressing a range of issues including trauma, sibling rivalry, anxiety, adjustment to parental divorce, and child behavior challenges. In addition, she is part of the Center’s interdisciplinary assessment team, and has conducted child and family assessments for the Cook County Family Court.

Rebecca also uses her experience working in educational settings to provide child observations and teacher consultations in schools, as well as providing therapeutic interventions directly in the classroom setting for children who have difficulties with peer relations or managing classroom routines.
