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.

I cannot even begin to express how much Rachael has helped me along. Her guidance is invaluable and she has helped me learn how to smile and to be happy again. Her care and concern for my well-being is so prevalent and her insight and knowledge is exceptional. She is in a word, amazing and I cannot thank her enough.
Rachael has been helping me through what is going to be a long process, she has been on track helping me work through my feelings and she is dedicated to the well being of myself as well as my family. I highly recommend her.
So far Rachel has been great. I look forward to working with her morw
Rachael is SUPERB in every way amd has taught me so much about myself!
Rachael has been great showing investment in helping me through my experiences. She has given specific, actionable feedback on ways to improve. I am very pleased with the progress I feel I am making thus far.
In my two sessions I felt like Rachael completely understood and got me immediately. She comes across very personable and completely feels like she cares about me and my progress. Would recommend her to anyone else looking for a counsellor :)
It makes personal work towards better mental well-being easy to access and so far I feel like I am progressing to my goals.
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.
