About Me

Hi !
Welcome to the BetterHelp Community.
I am Rachel Murphy Hinton, a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am licensed in the State of Louisiana and can provide services to people who are physically in Louisiana at the time of sessions.
I offer Individual, Family, and Couples/Relationship/Marriage Counseling.
I have fallen in love with tele therapy and as a result, have transitioned my practice to full time tele therapy!
Based on the Louisiana LPC rules regarding TeleTherapy, I am able to provide tele therapy sessions by video sessions or phone sessions. While I am able to message, the messaging is used for example to schedule and reschedule appointments, and I am not able to provide the therapy sessions through messaging.
I often say that Life is a Journey...it's such a journey...and We're all on it! I've recently added to that, saying... "and there is room for all of us!"
I have also often said that I believe it takes a lot of courage to reach out for help. And the truth is, we all need help...none of us can do it on our own!
My passion is to create a safe space for people to be able to talk about whatever it is that they are coping with ...and for some of us, to be able to say out loud the things that are hard to say out loud. I believe that the counseling relationship is a unique relationship. I believe so much of what makes counseling work is the relationship and the fact that it is nonjudgmental. My style is warm, inviting, and engaging.
I have been in private practice for 20+ years. I have worked with a variety of populations over the years. I have an outstanding background as a positive and energetic therapist with a high standard of excellence, professionalism, and ethics. I have provided services addressing numerous issues such as: anger management, domestic violence, substance abuse issues (for clients and for family members affected by one's substance use/abuse issues), stress management, mood management, depression, anxiety, grief issues, trauma, sexual abuse, physical abuse, adjustment issues, life changes, divorce, and relationship issues.
I have experience with and am comfortable working with people of various ages, cultures, and backgrounds. Again, I emphasize the importance of the counseling relationship and connecting with people and building the relationship in counseling.
I also believe in the quote "you are stronger than you know you are and you are more beautiful than you know you are." I often find that in counseling, as we explore coping skills, we are also identifying and sharpening many existing strengths....and that people are stronger than they know they are!
My approach is a mixture of client-centered, cognitive behavioral, and Emotionally Focused Therapy.
I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy. Emotionally Focused Therapy is used in Individual, Relationship/Couples and Family Counseling.

It is an honor to walk with you on the journey through counseling.
I look forward to connecting with you.

She is such an amazing therapist! She listens so well and gives the best guidance/advice.

Rachel is so kind, thoughtful, and patient. She keys in on exactly how you’re feeling and gives you a safe, open place to express it. At the same time, she is not afraid to call you on your BS! If she can sense that you’re not being honest with yourself or with her, she will gently push you to confront the truth.

She is truly gifted. Our only regret is that we didn’t find her sooner!
