About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, who has a diverse background and years of experiences in counseling of all ages with respect to various concerns and/or challenges they ma be dealing with. I am an Army Veteran with extensive experience in trauma. For the past few years I have worked as an advocate of victims of sexual assault and harassment. My areas of expertise include, but not limited to anxiety, trauma, substance use disorders, relationship issues, career challenges, coping will life challenges, and LGBTQ concerns.

My counseling style is supportive, honesty, understanding and non-judgmental. It is important to note, I tend to be more existential and will think outside of the box. My goal is to help each unique individual develop the coping skills they need to be able to lightly carry their burdens and enjoy life.

Realizing the need for change is the first step in making anything possible. Look forward to collaborating with you.

Rachael is a very strong support, especially during tough, high-stress times, as she ensures and maintains a non-judgemental stance. She confidently shares her advice and recommendations to attempt to de-escalate the situation at hand and discusses and agrees on next best steps to move forward. I would highly recommend her as she has been very kind and understanding.
