I am a Licensed Professional Counselor from South Carolina and a Board Certified through the National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). I have experience working with adolescents and adults. I provide personal counseling. I have worked with clients across a wide range of concerns including addiction, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and struggles while parenting. I also have experience working with individuals with career challenges and ADHD.
Although I have experience and training working with addictions, I have not been specifically trained to work with Sexual or Pornography Addictions. If this is a concern I would encourage you to look to a counselor overtly qualified in these areas.
My counseling style is warm, empathetic as well as client centered. I have found it works best to discuss the current concern and what attempts have already made toward resolving it. From there we are able to get to know one another and find alternative approaches to address you situation. Facts from your past can often shed unexpected light on finding relief in a current situation.
I often use Cognitive Behavioral approaches to assist individuals; although, my approach will shift to most accurately address the concerns shared with me. We will address plans and your progress toward your goals in session. Please discuss your comfort with the approaches with me regularly to ensure quicker success.
My main goal is to join you where you are and work with you to establish new approaches to solving your struggle(s).
I meet with subscribers using either VIDEO or PHONE conversations. While we can and will communicate a good amount via the message system, verbally communicating about your concerns leads to us discovering more fitting resolutions in a shorter timeframe.
If you are unable to make it to an appointment please give me 24 hours notice along with a date and time you wish to schedule our next meeting. I am available Monday through Wednesday on BetterHelp for meetings. I am seldom available for meetings on Thursday through Sunday. Meetings on these days may happen on a case-by-case basis but will not be regularly scheduled.
Are you ready to schedule our first session?
- Stress, Anxiety
- Parenting issues
- Self esteem
I also have experience in Addictions, Relationship issues, Family conflicts, Grief, Sleeping disorders, Anger management, Career difficulties, Bipolar disorder

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.
Rachael is very easy to talk to, I was so nervous but she made this a very positive experience and has helped me so much!!
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.
She has helped me so much over the past few months, keeping me accountable and encouraging me through my personal struggles. The tools and insight she has given me have provided breakthroughs and changes that have improved my quality of life!
Rachael is a tremendous counselor with amazing insights into any situation I present to her. I always come away from our sessions with a clear understanding of the direction I need to go in.
Thank you Rachael!
