Rachel Stuart


About Me

I am so glad that you are here and are taking the first step to improving your life and current situation. Let me tell you a little about myself and my practice. My name is Rachel Stuart. I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of Mississippi with over five years of experience working in a community mental health center providing individual and group psychotherapy while coordinating a Senior Psychosocial Rehabilitation Program for residents in a nursing facility. I received both my Bachelor's degree in Psychology and my Master's degree in Mental Health Counseling from Mississippi College. I am also a National Board Certified Counselor. Most importantly, I am extremely dedicated and passionate about helping others find meaning and a way to transcend the pain that is inherit in this existence.

Throughout my professional experience, I have had the privilege of working with a diverse group of individuals struggling with a variety of issues. I have a great deal of experience helping others overcome depression, stress and anxiety, grief and loss, relationship problems, trauma and abuse, difficult life transitions , and feelings of meaninglessness , isolation, and helplessness.

I view therapy and life in general as being far more complex than the medical model and science can fully explain. I see people as far more than diagnoses and will never pigeonhole them into a theoretical model, nor will I force my world views on them or assume their experiences and emotional reactions are similar to my own. My focus is on meeting each person's unique set of needs and tailoring my approach to meet those needs.

I use an integrative action oriented approach to therapy to help you focus on the issues that you would like to address in the present and your goals and expectations for the future. Together we may use a variety of methods to help you address relevant background issues, emotions, underlying thoughts and assumptions, and actions that are impacting your current situation. I utilize a humanistic approach and draw upon many of the practices of Solution Focused therapy, Narrative therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral therapy.

Together we can remove the constraints of hopelessness and stagnation that you may be feeling and that you also have the power to deconstruct. My greatest joy is to be able to free people from a narrow understanding of their potentiality by perturbing change and helping them to identify overlooked themes, resources, strengths, and exceptions to their problems instead of conceptualizing their problems as fundamental character flaws or problems inherit in their biology.

Thank you for taking the time to get to know a little about me. I look forward to learning about you and taking this journey together towards self healing and growth.

Rachel is a great listener, positive, compassionate, and easy to talk to. She always provides me with feedback. I currently feel I have no one who understands, so it makes me feel good to know that Rachel is here to help me. I appreciate how relatable she is to my situation above everything.

Wonderful counselor. Understanding, fair, and knows how to guide rather than force a person to a better route. I love speaking with her.

Rachel is awesome and has been really effective in her counseling. In just 48 hours of working with her, I have managed to learn to let go of my guilt via my grief, and learned to find a better balance to help build a stronger bond with my husband.

Thank you Rachel! Your work is greatly appreciated

This was my very first time ever that I've tried to get help, and Ms. Stuart was kind and compassionate. She was very helpful in assisting me with my mental stability. She was very professional, answered back in a quick manner, and made sure that I left my session feeling better. I would suggest this site to anyone and everyone who might need it. I can't think her enough for being there in what seemed like my darkest hour.
