'The first duty of love is to listen.' When someone truly listens the problems come to light and can be healed, resolved. Your unique capabilities and telling of your story in the ways you choose to resolve what brings you here are highly valued in the counseling process. I may use assessments and diagnoses but may also help with adjustment or not need to label. I assess the problem and offer researched solutions proven to work. I use a variety of therapies, including a person centered approach and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I also offer Equine and Canine Assisted therapy. I offer tele-therapy and remote video counseling.
CBT is proven to work as effectively as Rx drugs for some diagnoses. Sometimes prescription medication is necessary and I consult with medical doctors and other professionals I refer to. I do Play Therapy and Couples Counseling. I was also a Professor of Psychology, Career Development, and College Success. I work with military and international clients.
I've worked at a Baker Act Unit (crisis); domestic violence shelter; prison; base; residential drug treatment center; court programs; in home treatment; schools; on immigration, bariatric, and child dependency assessments; under a Psychiatrist, Behavior Analyst, & Physical Therapist; and as a Personal Trainer.

Rachel is extremely helpful, compassionate and patient. She balances her advice and counselling with the right amount of non-judgmental listening wonderfully. I highly recommend Rachel.
Rachel is a great listener and have a wide experience. She provided me with useful surveys and resources. As a bipolar, I have better managed my mood swings due to her help in cognitive therapy.
Rachel has been very supportive. Not only in the advice she gives, but she's also very respectful of how I wish to approach therapy at the moment. I'm only comfortable with live chat, and she respects the boundary. Same with therapy methods that I try but don't feel are effective for me specifically.
I feel she approaches my and my situation as an individual, not with broad stroke approaches just because she is an expert. This approach has made it much easier for me to open up to her and have an open mind to trying her methods. If they don't work, we tried and that's ok. So we try something else. I feel very fortunate to be working with Rachel.
She is great!
