About

I have specialized training and interest in working with individuals who struggle to manage emotions, whether that be that emotions feel particularly overwhelming and out of control, or whether you are more commonly feeling numb or disconnected. I work with teenagers and adults. You have been doing the best you can. Indeed, many of the ways that society tells us to manage difficult thoughts and feelings take a lot of work but actually lead us to be more and more stuck in our problems as time goes on.
I specialize in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) which is the gold-standard treatment for emotion dysregulation. I work with my team to offer DBT treatment which involves a minimum six month commitment to treatment with individual, phone coaching, and group therapy. I also have passion for trauma treatment (EMDR), and integrate trauma treatment in DBT.
I am currently on maternity leave but please reach out to our administrative staff to schedule an intake if you are interested in DBT.

Rachel King's Groups

Navigating the 4th Trimester

In navigating the difficult transition to parenthood, many new parents experience significantly decreased mood and increased anxiety in the two years after the birth of their child. This 9-week group is structured to help provide you tools to manage post-partum mood difficulties as well as providing a safe and supportive environment. You will learn information about common post-partum experiences and have a space to share with others who can validate your experience. The program is designed to treat depression and anxiety by providing concrete things that you can do differently to manage your mood. Registration is required.
