 NBCC Liaison

 Rebecca Hogg

  Rebecca Hogg, M.A., NCC, is a Resident in Counseling who joined NVLPC in 2013 and found that the support she received as a Masters level counseling student was unmatched. She sought out the support of NVLPC because of her experience living two years in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) and having the support of her fellow military spouses as together they adapted to a foreign country. These experiences engendered a passion to support others in the counseling profession and to this end she has volunteered for NVLPC for 1 year and remains the West Resident in Counseling Group Chair position. She has now volunteered to be in the position of NBCC Liaison Chair. She has experience working in community mental health with adults with severe mental illness and co-occuring disorders and is now building a private practice focusing on providing counseling for those experiencing compassion fatigue, caregiver burnout, substance abuse, or adult and elder life transitions. You can email Rebecca at NBCCLiaison@nvlpc.org
