I am not really someone that reacts very well to a typical “Therapy” environment because I use humor to mask a lot of my feelings and that’s not really the vibe when you see the therapist in my experience. Rachael not only makes me feel comfortable in our sessions, but they are actually really fun. I look forward to them weekly because she allows me to express myself and make jokes, but also helps me address my day to day stressors that may be underlying issues for my bigger problems. She is attentive, funny, but most of all she is knowledgeable and compassionate. She is extremely easy to talk to, and I could not recommend her enough!
She’s great! She listens and you can tell she really cares about helping me through my crisis.
I am very comfortable with Rachel. She has helped me through counseling as well as given great reading material for help while I am not in session.
Ms. Rachel is great, I have recommended her to my family and coworkers. These are hard times we are living and it is a good thing to speak to someone who can listen and help you work through some tough decisions.
