About Rebecca

Rebecca Pancoast is a Senior Clinician at IPNB Psychotherapy of Austin. She describes therapy as a rare space where we are invited to be met at the wonderous and messy edges of what it means to be human. The IPNB family of clinicians is her biggest support in the lifelong endeavor of learning how to hold therapeutic space both lovingly and skillfully. Rebecca describes herself as enamored of ideas and held by mystery. She has a curious mind that delights in making sense of the world and a soft heart that always leads her back to beauty and uncertainty.

​As a therapist, Rebecca provides experiential, body-centered guidance to support her clients in witnessing, healing, and integrating the beliefs and experiences that have brought them to therapy. Rebecca weaves together the neuroscience of the embodied brain with deep healing techniques to facilitate her client’s journey into self-discovery and belonging. 

In her time outside of the therapeutic space, Rebecca values connecting with animals and nature. The home she shares with her partner is alive with color, art, plants, and rescue animals. Rebecca is a neurodivergent person and provider. This enables her to offer a lived experience of how challenging it can be to live well in a world that often processes core human experiences like sensation, emotion, and relationship differently. While every neurodivergent person has a unique constellation of traits, Rebecca finds that adding a gentle combination of psychoeducation, validation, and thoughtful exploration of a client’s unique neurotype to experiential work supports them in moving toward deeper self- compassion and regulation. Rebecca specializes in working with women, men, and nonbinary adults, including those with ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, and other neurodiversities.

She is experienced in supporting members of the LGBTQ+ community and strives to be thoughtful about how her clients’ multiple identities might impact their lives and their experiences of therapy. Rebecca has specialized training in the use of experiential therapies with individuals with complex trauma.

Q&A with Rebecca


How does talking to someone help?

We learn to hear and understand ourselves by first being heard and understood. When we grow up in environments where we must fight to be heard or silence ourselves to stay safe, we become adults who feel cut off from who we really are. Talking to someone can help you make sense of how you became the person you are today, as well as help you discover new possibilities for who you are already becoming.

What question do you usually ask a client first, and why?

When a person first comes to see me, it’s clear how hard they’re already working. They are usually hopeful, but exhausted by their tenacity. Most of my clients walked a long road with their symptoms before they embarked on experiential therapy because powerful, effective inner work moves us into uncertain and vulnerable territory. The simple question, “How would you know if therapy went well?” is an invitation to share a small snapshot of the future they started moving toward long before I met them. Then, I can begin to join them on that journey and hold the image of that hope for them as they move into the difficult places—this time, not alone.

What is the best thing you have learned from one of your people?

The best thing I learned from a client is something that I learn again and again with every client. Each person I sit with teaches me that no thought, feeling, or behavior is arbitrary. What we call problems or symptoms emerge from our past, and the intensity of our current symptoms only rises to meet the intensity of what we endured. This truth strips away constructs of “good enough” and connects me to the inherent worth of every person, including myself. I think that’s the best part of being a therapist—the opportunity to sit in awe of what is good and valuable in each of us.
