Rachel has been a great help. She truly listens to me and reads all of my journal entries and asks a lot of great questions during our sessions. I would highly recommend Rachel to any with drug abuse disorders and suffers from mental illness

I have trust issues with Women in general so I was very nervous when I got assigned to a Woman therapist. I'm glad I stuck with her! She makes me feel comfortable & we are building trust. This is a corrective experience for me & valuable for my future relationships with other Women.
