About Me

Rachael is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist committed to treating individuals of all ages, families, and couples. Her specialty is working with clients who struggle with depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflict, pre/post-divorce, and behavioral concerns in children.

Rachael is a Certified Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapist as well as a certified Parent-Child Interactive Therapist and Level 1 trainer. Studies show that most individuals seek out therapy when they are in a state of crisis and when their bodies are out of homeostasis. Voelker excels in helping clients return to their pre-crisis state. Voelker, while focusing on both a systemic and strength-based approach, highlights the strengths of several therapy techniques including cognitive behavior, solution-focused, and motivational interviewing. Utilizing this approach allows several models of change to be integrated thus placing the client’s needs and goals as the driver to focus on the long-term success of the client.

Rachael has an Associate of Science degree in General Studies, from Northeast State Community College; a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, from King University; and a Master of Art in Marriage and Family Therapy from Liberty University. Voelker has been working in the mental health field since 2013.

Written by B.R. on Apr 07, 2021 after counseling with Rachael for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, intimacy-related issues, and sleeping disorders

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.
