Rebecca Hogg

Director, Clinical Services

Inspired by growing up near the coast in both California and Florida, as well as traveling the globe, Rebecca developed a passion for taking photos of the natural beauty around her.    She challenges herself with adventurous and calculated risk activities such as skydiving and parasailing.  Initially drawn to law, Rebecca received her Bachelor of Science from the University of Central Florida and worked for dynamic legal teams before deciding to be involved in education and then counseling.  She continued her own education by earning a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University.  She is now a Registered Play Therapist and has extensive experience working with children who have had to overcome trauma, challenges, and social concerns.  She also takes initiative as demonstrated in the training video she co-created for other therapists about how to do EMDR via telehealth which has been recognized by EMDRIA.

Rebecca has always been drawn to things that inspire people, which shines through in her practice. In recent years, she has found her niche of working with families affected by addiction and has developed a passion for helping those who have spent so much time caring for others. Rebecca is a bright, shining light who oversees all clinical services provided by Labor of Love to the families we serve. In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys exploring old and new places as well as sharing laughs and games with family and friends.

Brian Percox

Director, Family Services

Born and raised in Stockton, California, Brian was a promising and steadfast athlete in competitive gymnastics in his formidable years after his family relocated to Tucson, Arizona. After the loss of his brother to leukemia, Brian’s family began to bear the heavy loss in the way of acute markers of active alcoholism, something that both shaped and made him effective with the families he serves today.

Having spent some time incarcerated in his young adult years, Brian was able to convert that experience to good account upon his release and later was a volunteer in the Correctional system in the state of Maine, having been recognized by one of the worlds largest 501c3 service providers as having been both an innovator and pioneer into bringing faith-based programs into a lockdown setting in a meaningful and effective way.

After serving fifteen years in that system, Brian gave up a two-decade career in high performing sales and marketing to rise to CEO of one of the nation’s top Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers, treating chronic relapsers. While there he developed a unique and engaging style to work with addicted patients and oversee the correlating family programs-becoming a trusting sounding board for families across the country in distress.

Brian then joined the Labor of Love as the Director of Family Services, bringing both a kind heart and an intuitive expertise to meeting the needs of the families we serve. Brian is a highly sought out International speaker on the topic of alcoholism who leads a quiet life fathering two children: Quincy and Max. He spends his free time in study and enjoying golf.

It was this experience that shaped and defined who Jason was to become. Jason grew up with a passion for ice hockey, going on to play Division I. In his formidable years, Jason attended both York University and the University of Toronto - where he represented both institutions as a Varsity Hockey player.

Dr. Galea later relocated to San Diego to pursue a Masters in Sports Psychology and a PhD in Clinical Psychology.
