About Me

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!

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!!!

She has been great so far! She is very patient and lets you talk out your internal conflicts. I think she does a great job providing other perspectives that may be too difficult to see.

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!

Written by H.E. on Jun 26, 2019 after counseling with Rachel for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, family conflicts, parenting issues, anger management, and coping with life changes

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 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
