Hi, I'm Rachel Chernow and I'm a licensed clinical counselor in Maryland since 2007. In my 10+ years as a clinical therapist, I've worked with various populations struggling with a wide variety of diagnoses, including Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar disorder, adjustment Disorder, schizophrenia, and others.
I have a Master's degree in clinical counseling from Johns Hopkins University and have worked in private practice settings as well as community based settings.
I believe in order to have success in therapy, the initial focus must be on the relationship. I strive to develop a strong rapport with my clients based on a warm and caring presence. My therapeutic approach combines person-centered, cognitive behavioral, and psycho-dynamic. I will work collaboratively with you, the client, to develop and tailor a treatment approach that works best for you.
I recognize that asking for help can be a difficult step but I am here to support you as soon as you are ready!

Rachel is a very compassionate, thoughtful therapist. I enter therapy pretty open, but I think even if I didn’t, she would still be really good at asking questions that stimulate a lot of discussion and move sessions forward. I love that Rachel gives me measurable goals. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about the goals we developed together, but as the week went by, I really appreciated having quantifiable, straightforward goals to reach toward.
