Rachel likes the question "What happened to you?" not "What's wrong with you?" She firmly believes that every person has a story that deserves to be told. Acknowledging the immense strength it takes to seek help, Rachel makes sure to commend people's bravery and courage. When working with individuals, she meets them where they are at and strives to create a safe space where they don't feel isolated.
Rachel strongly holds the belief that each person knows themselves best, and together as a team, they can reach the clients' desired goals. Building a trusting, therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance in her therapy process.
Her approach is holistic and humanistic, incorporating therapies such as person-centered therapy, mindfulness therapy, psychodynamic therapy, trauma-informed care, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Rachel believes in tailoring the approach to each person's needs and finding what works best for them. Rachel is proud of her journey and how she got to where she is today. She takes pride in the self-help workbook she self-published and the support group she ran. Her passion for helping others stems from a deep desire to ensure that no one feels alone. Breaking the stigma surrounding mental health is a significant goal for Rachel, as she envisions a world where mental health treatment is normalized and accepted by all.
