Rachel Hamilton

(LCSW)

About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker licensed in California and Indiana. I have offered psychotherapy for 15 years working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, psychosis and life transitions including grief and loss. I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Grief Therapy and Jungian Dream Work. I have aided clients with parenting skills using logical and natural consequences with consistency.

I create a warm, inviting and safe environment and confidentiality is guarded. I use a client directed approach with non judgment, kindness and respect. I understand it can be difficult to ask for help and believe it takes bravery and strength to allow another person to be a part of your struggle. I consider it an honor to be invited and trusted with what you are willing to share and guard it as private and precious.

I believe there needs to be a good fit of client and therapist. Thank you for reading my profile and considering the fit. I look forward to working with you.

Rachel has been great to work with. I prefer phone conversations with her and she is very empathetic, open to what I want, flexible and very present whenever I chat.

I hit a rough patch during this time and Rachel is providing the support I need right now. Thanks Rachel!

Rachel has been wonderful. In my personal experience she has made me feel like she really cares about what I have to say and what I’m feeling. She engages in active listening and never assumes she understands what I’m saying. Rather she’ll summarize what I’ve said and asks if she’s got it right. She will also ask me how/if she can better help me. I get to set the pace and I’m able to ask for what I need. She’s compassionate and real.
