About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor with 14 years experience. I have worked in a variety of settings, these include a hospital setting, the school system, and community mental health. I have worked with clients of all ages with a variety of experiences to include abuse/trauma, mood disorders, relationship issues, family concerns, and self esteem.

My therapeutic approach is to provide solution focused and client centered techniques to empower clients to address day to day stressors and predicaments. I have especially enjoyed working with adolescents who face a variety of personal life challenges. I believe in treating each client with respect and compassion. I have been told I am easy to talk to and help people feel comfortable in opening up about their personal problems and concerns. I will tailor each treatment plan to help individuals achieve the goals they have set for themselves.

I look forward to working with you!

Rachel has really helped me during a low point of my life. She is able to put things in perspective, while also continuing to validate my feelings. Overall, I have felt more empowered each time our video calls end. I thoroughly enjoy meeting with her, and I look forward to our sessions each week. Thank you Rachel!

Extremely personable and helpful in finding ways to cope and overcome my new “friend,” anxiety. I am very grateful

I believe Rachel really understands my fears & has concern for my wellbeing & making me look to the brighter side of things or at least find a little humor when life is getting the better of me. She has me dig deep to try to find something positive in my day or to do for myself. She makes a difference in how I see things.

Written on Aug 17, 2022 after therapy with Rachel for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

I have been working with Rachel for about a year now. I started with, and continue to, battle anxiety and stress as part of my daily life. Rachel always listens to what I have to say and she helps me to be strong enough to help other people that I need to help. Without her I would be overly anxious, overly stressed and depressed. I know that as a fact because she helped me to alleviate those symptoms in the beginning by meeting with her weekly and just having the best face to face discussions.

I was comfortable with Rachel right from the beginning . She’s very personable, easy to talk to and listens very well. She remembers things from week to week that I don’t and helps me continue working through an issue until it is actually resolved, instead of just putting it in the back of my mind.

I highly recommend working with Rachel. She is very knowledgeable AND she is very kind and compassionate.

I have been with Rachel for about 6 months now. She is a great therapist and has helped me through some difficult times. I have learned a lot from her.

Written on Aug 16, 2022 after therapy with Rachel for 4 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, depression, self esteem, relationship issues, family conflicts, and adhd

Rachel is fantastic. Over about three or four months of work, she has helped me to stop filling my head with negative self talk. Rachel is assisting me in rebuilding my relationship with myself after having many unhelpful influences on how I view myself. She is stable, intuitive, smart, helpful, compassionate, creative, and an overall delight to speak to on a weekly basis. I always leave my sessions feeling more grounded and confident in how to walk forward with my week. Rachel helps to foster positive habits and self care and she is an amazing person.

She gave me some tips that would be very unfeasible (like leave my very young child alone in the home) when I said childcare was difficult to find. But she is a good therapist overall.

She does respond in a timely manner, I miss clicked the button. But she’s great and very easy to talk to and cares about what I’m saying like she has emotional investment which means a lot.

She’s provided me a great deal of support, understanding, encouragement, and guidance. Our sessions have equal parts humor and “realness” and through them I am learning healthy habits and gradually becoming a more successful version of myself.

Rachel has been great and extremely kind to me. I’m glad to have matched with her

Written on Mar 01, 2022 after therapy with Rachel for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Rachel Young has been stability for me. I am often high functioning and do not realize when I need help from an outside source until it is often too late. Having Rachel there helps me begin to find a way to better myself and how to make areas that are weak, manageable again. There are still days where it is tough, but Rachel finds a way to let me talk, listen to me when I make no sense, and really sympathize, empathize, and question why I feel the way I feel. I happily recommend Rachel Young to anyone that needs someone to listen and feel like while it is difficult you are moving forward and picking up the pieces. She has a sense of humor, she lets you feel what you feel, and she can be there for you on your way to self healing/mental check ups.

Rachel has helped me through a very difficult season in life. She has been kind, available, helpful, professional, and simply a wonderful human being since we started working together. Ms. Young does an excellent job pointing out the blind spots in life, the kind of issues that truly help after you begin addressing them. Rachel is also very real. This is easily one of the top reasons I've enjoyed working with her so much.
