Meet Rachel:

I specialize in working with tweens, teens, and young adults with a variety of concerns including anxiety, depression, identity exploration, communication, emotion regulation, and more. I have special interests in working with clients who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community or the Jewish community. I also enjoy working with older adults with concerns regarding aging, relationship changes, grief, etc. I pride myself on being able to create deep, lasting connections with my clients and providing a safe place to process the challenges of life. Through talk therapy sessions with a strengths-based approach, I will collaborate with you or your child to develop a toolbox of skills and strategies in order to create a life worth living!

My Approach

I understand that challenges are an inevitable part of life and that taking the steps to get help for your mental health can be daunting. I am down-to-earth and a kid at heart, allowing me to build relationships quickly and effectively with clients of all ages. After creating a foundational relationship with clients, I integrate strategies from DBT, ACT, and more into sessions that are strengths-based and solutions-focused. I also enjoy incorporating non-traditional interventions including art, music, and video games into my sessions.
