Greetings! My name is Rachel Radin, and I am a licensed clinical health psychologist in the state of California who specializes in treating adults with anxiety, mood, and eating disorders. I hold a Masters and PhD in Clinical and Medical Psychology from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in Bethesda, Maryland. I completed a Pre-doctoral Internship in Pediatric Psychology at Mount Washington Pediatric Hospital. I developed expertise in cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, and psychodynamic psychotherapy during my training at USUHS and throughout the DC/Metro Area. As a clinical health psychologist, I have a specialized interest in treating adults who suffer from weight-related eating concerns, such as binge eating and stress-related eating. During my clinical psychology internship at Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, I developed expertise in addressing health-related psychological concerns including diabetes management, obesity management, chronic health conditions, and developmental concerns. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where I developed additional expertise in using mindfulness-based and motivational-interviewing based treatments for a variety of presenting concerns. At UCSF, I developed a brief intervention to reduce stress-related eating among adults using mindfulness and motivational-based approaches. I look forward to working with you and helping to guide you towards your best self!

Rachel has been really attentive to my problems, and has been helping me rationalize a lot of the issues I have been having. I have only had a few sessions so far, but I am feeling confident with her as my therapist.
