I am a licensed clinical social worker in Pennsylvania and New Jersey with over 20 years of experience working as a therapist and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of difficulties including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, loss of a loved one, trauma, and physical and sexual abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. My clients are the experts' of their life experiences, so I work hard to listen to their needs and meet them just where they are. Together we work to overcome their challenges. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I tailor our dialog and treatment goals to meet their unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to ask for help so I applaud you for taking this first step. Please know that I am here to support and empower you and move towards a more fulfilling and happier life.
I look forward to hearing from you and working with you!

I've had two sessions with Rachel so far and she's been very helpful. I'm a goal-oriented person and her approach has been what I've needed. We seem to work really well together and Better Help has been a huge blessing. I've wanted to talk to a therapist for a while, but Covid has made it hard, and being able to communicate online and through video has been wonderful. I would definitely recommend Rachel to anyone needing a therapist.
Rachel makes me feel very comfortable. I feel like she is like my second mom because I can tell her anything and I always get a caring but objective response. She is very empathetic and I recommend her to anyone looking to speak with a therapist!
Rachel has been an amazing asset during COVID. It really helps to talk things through once per week.
She is fantastic.. great listener n gave me some great advice
Rachel is such a great listener and really creates a safe space for you to talk about what you have going on and finds ways of helping to soothe and comfort you while also helping in proactive ways to feel better.
I have been speaking with Rachel for two years now and I love her so much. It takes me a while before I actually open up with therapists/counselors about my past traumas. But with Rachel she was very patient and it was easy for me to confide in her. She understands me and my life. She takes my needs and emotions seriously. I feel heard and safe when talking to Rachel. I feel myself healing when talking to Rachel, even amidst all of the healing I still have left to do.
Very caring and supportive, helps me worth through issues and see the positives I so often discount. I’ve made many insightful realizations and steady steps towards improving myself with her help and guidance.
Wonderful to speak with
Rachel is so easy to talk to. She’s caring, understanding, kind and compassionate. She has been so helpful and brings me a different perspective.
I love Rachel. She understands my words so we can talk about my problems not my identity
When I finally took the step to reach out for help, I was uneasy. I didn’t know what to expect and was worried about people thinking I’m “crazy.” Rachel has been so wonderful- seriously. She has a calm, humorous, and kind vibe. She listens to me and genuinely helps me feel better by assisting me navigate through my emotions and thoughts. It’s been a little over a month and I feel so much better. I’m thankful for her, truly.
She’s amazing. Truly cares.
Rachel is great.
She is a wonderful counselor. Kind and compassionate.
Rachel is confident and thoughtful. I had given up hope in myself and she held hope for me.
Rachel listens and provides thoughtful information to really think through. Very helpful in working thru problems.
I am so grateful to have been connected with Rachel. Rachel is extremely empathetic, intelligent and perceptive. Rachel instantly created a warm and supportive environment where I am able to speak freely. She knows when to let a thought linger and when to ask questions to push your thinking. Rachel has made a lasting impact on my life even in our short time working together.
I loved working with Rachel. She truly cared and that's rare to find.
Rachel is absolutely fantastic. She is patient, kind, and gives you third party perspectives into some of the most difficult personal issues. I was in a dark place just 6 months ago, and she has helped me gather myself, see myself in a different light, and helped me overcome past relationship turmoil and familial traumas. She has a very caring, nurturing disposition, and I’d recommend her to anyone. Thank for helping me see the light in myself, Rachel! I’m sure she has changed many lives and will continue to do so for years to come.
She listens and advises very well. She is supportive and gives great advice.
Rachel always looks out for me. Aside from our sessions ,a simple message can be very uplifting when you need it most and she has an instinct for when that is needed. Highly recommended!!
Rachel is very patient, an excellent listener and actively engaged in our conversations. She always offers to be available if anything crops up between appointments, which I appreciate. I have made great progress working with her and am looking forward to continuing our conversation into the New Year. Highly recommended.
Rachel is kind and empathetic and the best therapist I have ever had!
Rachel was magnificent. She was an absolute pleasure getting to know and work with. I recommend her! I worked with Rachel for 4 months. We focused on my anxiety/ocd, slight depression, grief after the loss of a loved one, and how to re-motivate my positive thinking. I can not say enough good things!
I’ve only been in contact with Rachel for a brief period of time, and I have not had any type of therapy in years. I am pleased with the level of care and attention Rachel gives to me during our phone calls. It’s been really nice being able to connect with her each week about the current events of my life- almost like a weight being lifted off of my shoulders. Thank you Rachel!
Rachel is great - kind, supportive, non-judgmental, and very responsive. Really happy to have been matched with her, as she clearly really cares about helping her clients and gives great, practical feedback.
In such a short amount of time, I’ve had a lot of stress in my life that I felt like I was on the verge of a mental breakdown. I never understood how talking with a therapist could help people but I was willing to try anything at this point. All I can say is WOW, I have no words. I’ve only had 2 sessions so far and Rachel has helped immensely. I highly recommend!!!
Rachel is a kind, smart, supportive counselor who has helped change my life for the better.
Rachel is wonderful. She is extremely respectful that I am to shy/nervous to video chat or call (something needing to be worked on). Just messaging her is such a relief for myself; not having others to speak to. It feels like I am talking to a friend. I cannot recommend her enough!
Rachel's help has been instrumental during one of the toughest periods in my life. Rachel is an excellent listener and is able to facilitate productive therapy sessions while still allowing for enough space to come to your own conclusions. I would recommend Rachel to anyone who needs to methodically analyze a tough situation.
Rachel was an invaluable resource to me in a time of great need. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She's a great listener and offered several ways to help me through a difficult period. I cant thank her enough!
In the short time I have been speaking to Rachel, I have already felt comfortable with her and look forward to continuing sessions with her
Rachel is very understanding and a very good listener. She answers in a timely manner and is very easy to talk to.
Rachel was my only hope in a time of complete disparity, loneliness, and hopelessness. Without her, I’m not sure if I would be here writing this message today. Couldn’t thank her enough, and anyone who appreciates a laidback approach to counseling will enjoy her techniques and personality
Rachel is warm, thoughtful and kind. Never judgmental and always make sure to let me know I am heard. She is amazing!
Amazing session. I can't wait to continue working with Rachel, I feel she's so compassionate and incredibly intelligent.
Rachel was a lifesaver when I was going through some difficult times with my husband. Her incredible availability and responsiveness was amazing. She was highly supportive.
My counselor is intelligent, professional and understanding. She is a great resource and very helpful.
Rachel was easy to talk to and very intuitive. I felt she provided direct feedback and tangible next steps in loving forward. Highly recommend.
