About me

Welcome! My name is Rachel and I am happy that you are here seeking guidance on your journey in life! Counseling is a great resource with a variety of tools that can help with a wide array of concerns. I congratulate you and your show of courage in taking this first step! I urge you to take some time to find the Counselor that is the right fit for you as we do not come 'one size fits all.' I will tell you a little bit about myself to help you decide:
With a Master's Degree in Community Counseling, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Missouri (License #2021020473) and have also held School Counseling Credentials. I have worked in public school systems and private practice allowing me to view situations from a multitude of perspectives. I have worked with children, teens, young adults, and adults on concerns such as behavior issues, stress, anxiety, relationships, and motivation. I tend to focus on the here-and-now and use techniques that are centered around you. I am here to help guide.

I do offer all modes of communication - Live Video, Live Phone, Live Messaging (you schedule a Live Session and we message back and forth within that time frame ), and Messaging (responses are not in real time and may take anywhere from a few minutes to hours/days depending on day of week). I do require that all new members start with 1 Initial Live Video Session so I can match the name to the face, verify information, and go over some basics, After that, all other sessions may be any combination of the above listed modes.

I pray you find the positive reassurances you are looking for on this journey! If you believe I may be the right fit, I look forward to hearing from you!

FYI: In terms of scheduling, I offer Live Sessions at times that accommodate the busy lives of my clients and of myself and my family. The earliest Live Session Appointments I have available begin at 9:00 PM. I know the late times are not a fit for everyone so I want to make sure this is known right from the start so there are no surprises.

Rachel is so REAL. She is down-to-earth and steady, balancing gentleness and firmness with grace. In the middle of all the problems I've been facing, Rachel showed confidence in me that helped bring out my own confidence, build up my own strategies, and move me forward anyway. So thankful for how God has used Rachel's gifts to bless my life.

Rachel was a great Listener. Since this was our first session I felt like I needed to get everything out so she’d have some idea where my head was. She listened very carefully and was able to connect with me on questions and understanding. I believe she has a good idea on how to start healing and making progress with my situation.
I am very thankful for that

She is great at helping me understand how to recognize what I am feeling and gave me tools on how to handle those emotions properly. My wife and I can not thank her enough for all the time she spent guiding us through so that we can make our marriage strong and we can rely on God together!
