Honest, caring and logical with every response to my concerns, thoughts and feelings. Rachel truly understands the difference in thought processes in different situations and perspectives to help me paint a full logical picture and allows me to undertake a deeper objective approach to my issues. I couldn’t ask for a more detailed and accurate explanation of what the situation is. She’s truly understands the mind and has lead me to a genuine and honest understanding of myself! If you truly desire growth and fulfillment in life you can count on her to help you achieve it.
