About Me

Are you experiencing increased levels of sadness, anxiety, or fear?
Do you find yourself in a situation that you feel is beyond your control?
Have these uncomfortable feelings become present recently or have they been around for longer than you wish?

My name is Rachael Hudson. I have worked as a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) for those residing in South Carolina since 2015. I am also Board Certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC).

I consider it an honor to sit with individuals as we discover healthy ways to heal that uniquely fit individuals. As a counselor, I have experience working with clients who have a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship issues, as well as situational hardships and beyond.

My counseling style is warm and empathetic. I often find myself using Person-Centered, Solution Focused, and Motivational Interviewing approaches in the initial stages of counseling. I find it beneficial to first discuss current concerns and then the different ways you have tried to resolve these concerns in the past. From there we are best able to find alternative approaches to address your current situation. Facts from your past can often shed unexpected light on discovering realistic solutions in current hardships.

Repeatedly, I have found the Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic approach to be of assistance to clients, yet I am very comfortable pulling from numerous therapeutic approaches to best match my client’s needs. We will address plans and the progress toward your goals in every session. Please discuss your comfort with the approaches I introduce to ensure quicker success.

My main goal is to join with you to discover new and effective approaches to reduce your discomfort.

Verbal communication during sessions often leads to discovering resolutions in a shorter time frame than communicating via text only. For that reason, our official meetings will be held via PHONE or VIDEO. I want you to feel as comfortable as possible beginning this process of counseling. Please reach out to me with any questions via the message system as we begin your journey to healing.

Rachael has greatly helped me manage anxiety and confidence issues while I navigated through important life transitions. She is empathetic, and she has patiently held me accountable as I've worked toward goals. I've always felt comfortable talking with her, and she has been genuinely invested in helping me move forward in life. Her enthusiasm and support has made such a difference in my life. I highly recommend her!

Rachael offers supportive, encouraging help! She asks great questions and truly listens.
I was really struggling with anxiety and depression and she helped me find the exercises that helped me re-tool my thinking.

I feel safe sharing with Rachael. She hears me, yet keeps me on task. I would highly recommend her. She is exactly what I need to sort my feeling out.

Written by A.S. on Dec 30, 2019 after therapy with Rachael for 3 weeks on issues concerning depression, and relationship issues

I find Rachael to be very relatable, professional and very supportive. I don't feel judged and so I feel more likely to confide with her and I take the exercises that she gives me seriously. I also appreciate that she follows up with me post conversation. I appreciate betterhelp for online counseling. My first thought was that this wouldn't be very personal but it has exceeded my expectations especially as a busy executive. I have recommended betterhelp to an associate and I am aware that she has signed up and had her first session as well.

Raechel is a great listener. She adjusts her methods to fit the person she is counseling so that they fit the individual needs. She also assigns worksheets and activities to help the person learn and cope between sessions.
