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!
- Stress, Anxiety

I also have experience in Trauma and abuse, Grief, Parenting issues, Anger management, Bipolar disorder, Coping with life changes, ADHD

I’ve tried multiple counselors in my adulthood and I’ve never made as much progress in my mental health than I have with her. I really enjoy working with her!!
I have been working with Rachel for around 2 weeks now and I already feel less anxiety knowing that I have someone to talk to about my struggles. She responds to my messages throughout the day and always offers suggestions or the encouragement that I need. I've always been weary of online therapy but it has proven to be so helpful with my mental health.
Rachel is so understanding and kind.
