Rachel Burgess


About Me

Hi! My name is Rachel. I’m a licensed professional counselor in Virginia. I enjoy listening to others and helping them find a way through challenging times. I have 12 years of experience working in mental health providing individual counseling and group work. I have worked with individuals ages five to adult. With my broad range of experiences, I am comfortable assisting with a broad spectrum of clinical issues. Areas I am exceptionally well-versed in include: anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, grief, stress management, addiction, co-occurring disorders, anger management, family conflict, and adjustment issues.

I believe that having a trusting, therapeutic relationship is key to having an overall positive experience in therapy. My counseling approach is warm, yet direct. I believe in focusing on one’s strengths to guide them through the challenges in their lives. I use a person-centered approach commonly with solution focused therapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy is apparent throughout my sessions as I try to help you connect your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

I’m glad you have taken this step to make a healthier you. I look forward to working with with you!
