Most couples want a marriage where they can be vulnerable with each other. Where intimacy and loyalty come together and create a beautiful friendship where they can experience the fullness of life together. The problem is, many couples often feel isolated and uncared for because of unmet expectations, miscommunication, and mistrust. I know it's frustrating when you feel like you aren't on the same team or how sad it feels when you second-guess if you made the right choice when you said “I do.”

Hi! I'm Rachel. I graduated from Northwestern University in 2014 with a Masters in Counseling Psychology specializing in Child and Adolescent Psychology. I have been trained in EMDR, worked with trauma in the inner-city of Chicago and am very well versed in this department. I am LGBTQI affirming. My clients have said I have a warm presence. My therapeutic approach is client-centered- I use expressive/art therapy techniques, focus on internal family systems and parts work (essentially looking at oneself through a lens of functional parts, some more at the forefront than others). I offer free 15 min consultations.

Feeling stuck? Being human is hard. Maybe you’re tired of falling into the same old relationship patterns, feeling weighed down by anxiety spirals, or going through some difficult transitions. Maybe you just want some space to feel heard and seen. Therapy can provide the opportunity to help break us out of patterns that aren’t serving us anymore and get us to a place where we can have more peace, balance, and relief.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who works with children, adolescents, adults and families. I work with clients experiencing a wide variety of life circumstances and issues; however, I have specialty training working with school-aged children, college students and families. My approach to working with clients is to first provide them an environment where their life circumstances can be understood so they can feel safe to explore new possibilities. My priority as a therapist is that my clients feel empowered to live their best life within their own unique set of cultural factors while taking into account their personal goals.

I believe in a therapeutic relationship that is nurturing, supportive, and energetic, where folks are free to question, grow, and change. As a queer therapist with lived mental health experience, honoring your story is important to me. As such, I am always looking for new ways and perspectives to approach the intersections of identity, history, and values. I often look for patterns and adaptations you might not see, and seek to bring them into the room respectfully and with the utmost sensitivity to your needs.

I'm a clinician who is dedicated to creating a warm, safe, and enriching environment for my clients. I understand everyone’s therapy journey is unique and I strive to ensure all of my clients feel seen, heard, and understood. Therapy is space for you to explore your talents and strengths, identify barriers, and learn new approaches to cope with stressors. Most people underestimate the skills and strengths they possess. I believe by empowering and highlighting skills a client already has allows the foundation for new coping strategies to be built. Life can be challenging and I believe nobody should ever feel alone on their journey.

Therapy can be a process of unfolding for individuals and families. Whether deepening insight and self awareness, increasing compassion, or finding new ways to address life, the process of readying one's self for change can start in the quiet, reflective space of therapy. I provide in person and virtual psychotherapy and consultations to residents of Illinois and Indiana. While my therapeutic approach is eclectic, I rely on a psychodynamic understanding of the lifespan, third wave behavioral approaches to change, and I center the importance of self-integration.

Closed to new referrals at this time. In my 10 years of practice as a psychotherapist, I have worked with people facing many struggles, including surviving past trauma and abuse, feeling suicidal, and severe/chronic mental illness. As a member of the LGBTQ community, I have worked with many people who identify as LGBTQ, and have supported people through coming out, gender transition, and accessing gender-affirming health care. As a white therapist, when working with BIPOC clients, I use the frameworks of anti-racism and cultural humility, and strive to make space for exploring the impacts of racism and racial differences.
