I identify as Black or African American .
Please Note: My practice is Virtual Only. Our beliefs and how we see the world are influenced by things we don’t get to choose, like our families or the circumstances we’re born into. Even if we don’t get to choose these things, we have the ability to change in the ways we want to. Therapy can help us become more free. If you want to begin that journey in self discovery, I’m here to walk with you. We will explore the circumstances that shaped you. We will explore the past, present, and imagine the future. I will help serve as a navigator down the path to your answers, your destinations, and ultimately, your truth.

A queer, biracial Black woman born into a multicultural family, one of my proudest achievements was when I became the first person in my family to earn a university degree.
I have the honor of accompanying fellow LGBTQIA+ individuals of color, especially those moving through life transitions, first-generation undergraduate & graduate students, academics, artists, writers, and those holding intersectional identities rooted in multicultural and interracial families, partnerships, and transcultural and/or adult adoption. In addition, I work with couples as well as poly individuals and ethically/consensually non-monogamous partnerships.

Hi, I’m Dr. Rachel Fenton. As a graduate of GWU’s Psychology Doctoral program, my treatment approach tends to be psychodynamic using an integrative lens. My training includes both inpatient and outpatient work as well within an addiction treatment center. I have particular success working with individuals with complex trauma and/or racial trauma and provide compassionate care to Black Indigenous People of Color (BIPOC). For all of my patients, I believe in treatment that is tailored to the specific needs of the individual while at the same time providing a space that is conducive for the utmost vulnerability and authenticity.

I am invested in working with black and brown populations, especially youth and women of color.
Fighting life’s many challenges can feel like a never ending battle, especially when feelings of hopelessness and frustration take over. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck, or misunderstood or maybe you just want someone to talk to who listens and understands. You’re probably sick and tired of having to be “strong” all the time, and it’s left you feeling drained. You deserve to be heard—to be validated—to be seen.

What I have learned in my work and life experience is that having a consistent space to unpack unhealed wounds allows for new perspectives to emerge. The intersection of our identities impacts how we view ourselves and how we process life experiences. My experiences working with Black and Latinx communities, and the growing need for inclusive representation in the mental health profession, have influenced my decision to become a therapist. As a Nigerian-American child of immigrant parents, I recognize that it can be transformative to receive services from a provider who shares similar social identities.

Sharing your individual difficulties, fears, desires, and dreams can be a challenging experience. Therefore, I focus on building a warm and safe therapeutic environment for introspection and self-discovery. I believe that we frequently we have the tools inside of us to heal our struggles and I seek to help you uncover those tools in therapeutic work. As a queer black woman, I understand it can be tough to find spaces to authentically express your true feelings, as well as get validation and support. I have experience holding space and processing the challenges that can arise from holding multiple marginalized identities.

I have done extensive research and training on issues commonly experienced by women of all backgrounds, within the Black community and within Black romantic relationships.
The word Sankofa means "one must go back in order to move forward". The idea is that in order to move forward into our highest potential, we must use the best of what was in our past. As a relational therapist who primarily works from a Solution-Focused approach, the word Sankofa reflects my belief that learning from our experiences in the past can contribute to healing in the present and future. I believe we are all capable of change through an effective solution. I have experience bringing about the changes that will lead to a healthier and happier life.

Trying to manage life is a never-ending journey. With what life throws at us like heartache, loss, and overwhelming moments that become trying. With us not knowing which directions to take and feeling all feelings at once we can end in areas of anxiety, depression and negative behavior patterns. In times we face adversity, we tend to already have a solution but have a hard time with the steps and changes needed to get there.

Sometimes we get to a place in our lives where we realize that we feel stuck. We want to take that next step in life, but feel like we just can't get there. We try different things, but nothing seems to work, at least, not the way we need it to. It also hurts to have a picture in our mind of what we want our lives to be, only to look around and see that we are far from having it. You might feel that you can relate to some of these experiences. You are not alone. Many people share these feelings. I'm interested in working with you, to help you have more of the life that you want.

As a psychotherapist, my ultimate goal is to provide a safe and supportive environment for my clients to grow as a person and develop skills that will improve their overall quality of life. Therapy isn’t a one size fits all practice. Therefore, I believe in building good rapport with my clients to properly assess their needs in order to determine an individualized treatment plan. I have experience working with populations whose cultures and backgrounds often stigmatize mental health, therefore I am passionate about bridging that gap. I'm thankful that you have visited my page and I look forward to working with you!

At Somatic Freedom Therapy, we know that many people are not able to access the sense of freedom that they deserve! So many people are imprisoned by their pain, suffering and the systems that perpetuate it! Maybe you have noticed that you are not happy; not feeling confident or that fear and worry are stopping you from living the purposeful life that you dream of living. Or perhaps depression is holding up your life goals? Do you wish that you could remain present and feel a sense of aliveness? Have you noticed that you have lost your sense of joy and easeful ability to connect to others with playfulness?

My favorite author, Cleo Wade, once wrote, “There is no mountain that cannot be climbed and there are more pathways to the top than we could ever imagine.” At times, it can feel like the mountain(s) in front of us are insurmountable. These mountains could include grief reactions, trauma, relationship problems, newfound or old insecurities that won’t go away, job or financial insecurities, family difficulties, and many more. I believe that therapy exists to help you find alternative pathways to the top of the mountain you are facing.
