I am a warm and accepting counselor licensed in California with 10 years of experience working with adults. I have worked with people who experience a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, and career challenges in the nonprofit sector. I have a passion for working with people and believe deeply in working together to develop a healing place where growth, self- exploration, and change can happen.
My style is accepting, nonjudgmental, and interactive. I believe change begins with curiosity and willingness to explore. I strive to create a safe, healing, and positive relationship and space. I combine various approaches to best meet the needs of each person I work with. My goal is to create a space that you feel safe to entrust me with your stories and experiences while we work towards growth, self- exploration, and your goals.
Seeking help and creating change is not an easy task. I will be here with you to support, guide, challenge, and empower you during your journey. I look forward to working with you!

Rachel is very personable and makes me feel comfortable. When I can’t make a session, she checks in which is appreciated.
