Rachel is absolutely amazing! She always listens to what I have to say instead of just hearing me. Rachel is spot on with resources to assist me with my life challenges. I am very thankful for her dedication and thoughtfulness.

Better help could not have picked a better fit for me. I love how my therapist always seems to understand where I’m coming from and tries to relate to every situation.
