Hello and welcome!
My name is Rachel and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with over four years of experience working with individuals during some of life's most challenging times.
My goal as a therapist is to support individuals in navigating the many challenges that may be creating feelings of distress, a sense of despair, or general anxiety and overwhelm. Oftentimes we get stuck in our way of thinking and need help and support to gain the insight needed to experience positive growth. I work with clients in helping them gain awareness into thoughts and behaviors that may be self-defeating and work to create lasting change. I have experience working with individuals with a range of challenges including self-esteem, divorce, stress, anxiety, relationship concerns, parenting concerns, and trauma.
I utilize a variety of therapeutic modalities within a strengths-based approach including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness.
Additional areas of focus: Addictions, LGBT, Family conflicts, Trauma and abuse, Grief, Intimacy-related issues, Anger management, Career difficulties, Depression, Coping with life changes, Compassion fatigue, Adoption and Foster Care, Blended Family Issues, Caregiver Issues and Stress, Codependency, Commitment Issues, Communication Problems, Control Issues, Divorce and Separation, Family Problems, Forgiveness, Guilt and Shame, Impulsivity, Jealousy, Social Anxiety and Phobia, Women's Issues, Workplace Issues, Young Adult Issues
Clinical approaches: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy
