About me

Do you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed or boggled down with everyday stressors and struggles? We have all been there before. I believe that everyone needs a supportive, objective person to talk to when they are struggling and deciding which move to make next. I can be that supportive person for you. I have experience in substance abuse, child/adolescent counseling, anxiety/depression, coping skills, etc... My main goal as a counselor is to make a difference in the lives of others, and hopefully provide you with helpful tools for whatever journey you may be on in your life.
I have been in the counseling field since 2005. My roles in life are probably not much different from your own; I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, teacher, coach, and friend. Please allow me to utilize my professional and personal experience to help you with your current struggles.

I have just started working with Rachel James, and so far it is going great! She is prompt for our sessions and her warm and welcoming personality quickly put me at ease. She genuinely seems to care and wants to help. She offers good advice, without coming across as “preachy” or judgmental, and her personality inspires confidence that it’s ok to be totally honest and transparent. I am really glad that I got connected with her and am looking forward to continuing to work with her going forward.
