About Me

Hello! I appreciate you taking the time to stop by. It takes courage to seek guidance towards achieving a healthier more balanced life no matter the challenges you face. My name is Dr. Rachael Baker. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in the Sunshine state, Florida. I earned a Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling in 2009 from Capella University, and a PhD in Counseling Studies in 2014 from Capella University. I have been practicing for 12 years in both private practice and agency settings. I have had the opportunity to work with various types of presenting problems including depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship issues, parenting, mood disorders, and trauma.

As a therapist, my treatment approach encompasses active listening and empathy. I practice an inclusive perspective, making sure to consider the unique needs of each client, and include personal experiences and presenting struggles that might help you to identify areas of change in your life. The holistic and integrative approach I use includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. I believe it's imperative to be respectful and sensitive to everyone's needs, while remaining encouraging and supportive. Together, we will find the best approach to help you begin making changes towards a better life!

You have already taken the first step towards making change and achieving a more fulfilling and happier life. I hope to have the opportunity to support you in this journey and help you to accomplish your goals.

Dr.Baker is exceptional. She was exactly what I needed in order to heal and move forward with my life. I love her approach. She not only listens, but makes sure I am actively doing what I need to recover and live my best life. I was in a super dark place I didn’t know how I would get out of if it wasn’t for her. She genuinely cares and made sure I was going to get better. I can’t thank her enough. I would recommend her to everyone I know.
