About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Pennsylvania with over 20 years experience providing counseling across a variety of professional settings with a diverse clientele. A well-practiced and experienced professional, I am comfortable assisting with a broad spectrum of clinical issues. Areas I am exceptionally well-versed in include: development and adjustment issues over the lifespan, career challenges and unexpected life changes, developing a stable and positive sense of identity and self-esteem, and finding a deeper meaning and sense of purpose in one’s life struggles. Key issues include anxiety, depression, parenting issues, ADHD, ODD, developmental issues and/or special needs, supporting adults with autism, PTSD, sexual abuse or trauma issues, and helping adults recover from a traumatic or life-altering event such as a brain injury. As the parent of child with autism, there is a special place in my heart for supporting individuals on the autism spectrum, their caregivers and their loved ones.

I am adept in helping individuals develop skills in a variety of areas including setting and achieving life-changing goals, bettering themselves in key life areas such as relationship skills, parenting skills and support, time management and organizational skills, problem-solving skills, conflict resolution skills, executive functioning, and developing a daily routine that reflects their individual goals for their life.

My counseling style is warm, empowering, and collaborative. My approach combines humanistic and cognitive therapies and employs motivational interviewing and reality therapy to help you develop a clear vision of the life you want for yourself, determine the steps necessary to achieve that life, and provides coaching as you work towards achieving your goals.

I look forward to joining alongside you on your life journey.

Rachel is outstanding! As a Therapist and a Listening Ear, she is thoughtful, insightful, encouraging, and challenging in a way that reflects her groundedness in Jesus. She uses scripture as a tool to bring out the best in me. I cannot recommend her highly enough - I am a better person for the work that we have done together!

Rachel is a fantastic therapist who really understands, listens and helps me through troubles and issues going on in my life. I have made much progress and she certainly gets some of the credit. I picked her after my initial therapist wasn't a great fit and I could not have been luckier to have her help me.
