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 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!

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
