I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 8 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families dealing with all sorts of problems ranging from depression to acute trauma and addiction. My extensive clinical experience working in psychiatric hospitals has prepared me to work with a wide variety of clients using evidence based therapies to help create sustainable progress. With couples and families, I utilize an eclectic approach including Gottman Method, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and more. Couples will be considered one client, however, some individual sessions may be appropriate. I help educate families and couples on communication, boundaries and much more. I offer my clients guidance, suggestions and resources to aid in the progress towards their goals.

I appreciate Rachel’s patience and expertise. She has a real talent and skill for listening and guiding you to look inward to help problem-solve/brainstorm toward a resolution. She offered worksheets and information very relevant to my situation and prompts and exercises to practice the skills she saw would be helpful in moving forward and letting go.
She is kind and well spoken. Listens equally to my husband and i hiving us each a chance to give our side. Offers meaningful suggestions.
I’ve spent so long avoiding therapy because of the stigma as well as the cost associated with it. I feel like I’m finally starting to understand who I am and what I deserve.
