Hi, welcome. I’m Rachel (they/them)! I believe human suffering wells up from a myriad of different sources. It is human nature to suffer, but what we do with it creates our life path. A major factor that may heighten your deep sense of pain is the lack of someone willing to be present in your pain and listen to your story. People innately desire to be seen and have their stories witnessed. Unfortunately many in society fear this intimate act of witnessing, leaving many to experience the void and pain of isolation in addition to their core suffering. One of the first and greatest steps toward healing is to have stories witnessed.

I love working with those looking to understand themselves better and heal wounds of the past. If you're anything like me, you also find safety in understanding why you do the things you do. Making sense of symptoms can lead us to better awareness of patterns and gives us opportunities to break the cycles that keep us from our goals, who we want to be, and where we want to go in life.

There are many reasons why you might be looking for a counselor, but the search always involves a certain amount of courage and humility. Maybe things in life are not turning out as you've planned; or, you've woken up with a hangover three too many times or you can't quite kick your late night consumption of an endless scroll of pornography; or, perhaps, you've never quite gotten past the death of a loved one or a choice made during a heated conflict of war. Perhaps your fighting with your spouse, struggling to discern your vocation, or a myriad of other possibilities; whatever brings you, I commend your brave and humble beginning.

Perhaps you're seeking relief after struggling with the same problem for years. You kept hoping that it would go away on its own, but it just keeps dogging you. Or, a current situation is bringing back old, unpleasant feelings or frustrating behaviors that you thought you had "dealt with", and it's negatively affecting both you and other people in your life. Maybe you're experiencing something now that you've never faced before, and your normal ways of coping just aren't working as well (or at all).

I take a relational approach when working with clients. We have all been shaped by both our personal history and intergenerational history. My hope is that anyone who would invest considerable time, energy, emotion, and money into therapy desires clarity and awareness. Oftentimes, clients have never been given a safe place to process the underlying reasons for the present-day issues. Nor have they been asked the right questions that would help them reflect on the joy and pain that was and is present. This is needed to develop a sense of self. I hope to be part of a client's journey toward being more fully who they were born to be.

Life can be hard. Lonely. Confusing. Painful. As woman, we are called on to do a lot and to be a lot - often at the expense of our own health and well-being. When loss or a major life transition occur, it can become too much to handle. Overwhelm floods in. We can reach a breaking point. Are you struggling to function well in your daily life, plagued by sleepless nights, physical discomforts, illness, apathy … just going through the motions of living? Do you worry your relationships are being impacted too much by nagging bad moods or angry outbursts? It doesn't have to be this way. You don't have to do this alone. I can help.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
