Rachel Tiede is an excellent therapist. She has a great quality of listening, empathy and compassion. This is combined with a lived and reflected on experience of her own that allows her to offer insightful questions and useful guidance. Her approach is always gentle yet perceptive and I always felt better afterwards. Thanks you Rachel may you continue your great service.

Rachel is a great counselor! She asks the most perfect questions at the most precise moment in order to help with a breakthrough. I have talked to many counselors and doctors and it is difficult to find someone like Rachel. She truly cares about people and supporting them. I like that she is straightforward and doesn't loop around the point. I feel as if I've known her all my life and she can speak to what I'm going through clearly and easily. I appreciate her presence in my life at the moment very much!

It has been a little more than a week that I have been having sessions with Rachel, and I am already so much better than I was when I started. She is amazing. She understands me so well just through my messages. The questions she posts to me, are so helpful and it's help me understand what I should do or should not do, just why replying to her questions. She is a wonderful counselor and also can make one feel very good about oneself. I would definitely recommend Rachel to all those looking for help.

I was getting discouraged with the counselling experience I had on here but then I was paired with Rachel. She seems genuinely interested in my story and in helping me through my mental illness and life conflicts. Rachel is quick to respond and provides thought out responses. I am looking forward to our first live session.

Written by M.I. on May 06, 2017 after counseling with Rachel for 1 month

Rachel is a great listener with affirmative words and is a constant source of encouragement. She also has good insight into people's thoughts and actions and attempts to use these to cater to the clients' needs. She allows you to go at your own pace and develops ways to encourage you to think differently about your issues. The best part was that she was quite responsive and would answer as soon as possible. I would like her to possibly show a bit more of tough love and encourage structure in the counselling sessions.
