About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker in New Jersey with over 10 years experience. I have worked with individuals and families coping with medical issues, including childhood cancer. I also worked for several years in the eating disorder field and in private practice. I have a particular passion for working with young parents in adjusting to parenthood. This includes coping with post-partum anxiety and depression, fertility issues and pregnancy and infant loss.

My style is collaborative and interactive. I work to create a warm and positive atmosphere where I work with clients on mutually agreed upon goals. While my approach is informed by past experiences, I like to work toward real time solutions to difficulties and building internal and external supports.

Reaching out for support is an important step, and I look forward to working with you!

I love Rachel. Every time we are finished with our session, I feel lighter and stronger about my feelings and thoughts. Rachel puts things in perspective, always respects my feelings, makes good observations, and sometimes leaves me with positive observations to ponder about. I highly recommend her!

I’m a really picky person with therapists but Rachel is the first one I feel like I can stick with. She takes great consideration to fit sessions to a larger goal and it has been very appreciated. I feel like my sessions have been truly judgement free and I appreciate that

Rachel is so easy to talk to. She offers great guidance but what I appreciate most is that she just listens to me and lets me get all of my feelings out without judgement. She helps me figure out my own issues with solutions that work for me. I was very nervous about this experience but I am so happy to have found her.
