Dr. Rachel Minelli


About Me

I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Illinois and I have extensive experience working with both individuals and families. I work with clients with a variety of concerns including stress, relationship difficulties, parenting concerns, depression, anxiety, low motivation, trauma and abuse, and poor self-esteem.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, positive psychology, attachment, and solutions focused counseling. I will tailor our conversations and treatment plan to meet your unique needs. I work collaboratively with clients to address the goals that are important to them. I strive to create a warm and accepting connection with clients to help them feel safe to explore their concerns.

I believe that we all need help sometimes to cope with life's challenges. I look forward to helping you meet your goals!

Very much like Dr. McNally. She's very sweet and very easy to talk to you.

Dr. Minelli has been wonderful so far. She is the first therapist I have ever felt comfortable with. She reacts fast and responds quickly. I enjoy our conversations and look forward to our one on ones. She keeps the conversation moving. I would recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Minelli is excellent. She is able to see right down to the core issues and address them in a compassionate, caring way. She is a gem.
