Rachel is presently not accepting new clients. Life presents us with many opportunities for stress, anxiety and emotional turmoil. Sometimes we need professional support to help us navigate difficulties in our life, especially when our own coping and problem solving strategies are not working anymore. Therapy is a tool that can help us steer the course of our life to the best of our ability so that we can achieve our goals and find more success personally and interpersonally. I always take a non-judgmental stance and hope that you will find me open and easy to talk to.

Are you feeling overwhelmed by life’s demands? Do you struggle with over-thinking and worry that things are not going to be okay? Unfortunately, many people never seek help for these types of issues and suffer in isolation where many of these symptoms only become worse. I offer an effective therapy called Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. It helps you learn how to have a healthy relationship with your thoughts, behavior, and emotions. We’ll work through your patterns, and I’ll help you learn new ways to manage what life throws at you. Anxiety can make us feel stuck, but there is hope.

When working with a client, I find it most important to create an "emotional safe space" where one feels comfortable to openly express and is able to feel truly heard and understood. My overall approach focuses on helping one strengthen one's own relationship with them self via self compassion and self kindness. It is my experience that this is the most effective way to find clarity and balance in one's relationships, work and overall ability to feel unconditionally comfortable with oneself. It means nourishing your mind, body and soul by having the kindest thoughts about yourself, caring for your body and finding your own unique spiritual connection between you and life. When we focus on our own "wholeness" we are able to find peace and able to give more to our relationships and to our dreams.
