I am so glad you are here.

Compassionately caring for yourself and others is to gently, lovingly open to the struggle or suffering you are holding as well as to the joy and awe in everyday life so you can skillfully process your emotions, build resilience, and live mindfully. Rachel holds space for rest and refuge where growth, change, grieving and healing can happen. 

Rachel is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 20 years professional experience and a lifetime of dedication to nurturing the soil for all human beings to feel belonging, dignity, and flourishing. She uses a mindfulness, compassion, person-centered, strengths-based approach to collaborate with adults to nourish their innate wisdom and resilience so they can show up authentically and compassionately - for themselves, in their work, in their relationships, and in their communities. Using a combination of mindfulness, self-compassion, cognitive-behavioral practices and talk therapy, she guides clients to discover and develop the resources they need to address unconscious beliefs and behaviors that are holding them back from living in alignment with their values and purpose.

As a therapist, Rachel is warm and non-judgmental, patient and loving. She provides a space where healing can happen, a space where you can feel safe to open to and process difficult emotions and experiences so that you can live fully and authentically.
