About Rachel:

 

Personal:

I am a lover of learning- I am always in the midst of reading several books at once and working on at least 2 craft projects. I love art, cooking, spending time in nature, gardening, writing, and enthusiastically dancing to my favorite tunes. I identify as a queer woman and my pronouns are she/hers. I am passionate about approaching all work that I do from a place of authenticity and through an anti-oppressive lens. My ancestral roots as a Jewish and Choctaw woman inform my passion and commitment to empowering marginalized peoples and working toward inspiring greater empathy and unity in our world.  I  personally identify as an empath, a creative and an intuitive and believe that these gifts enrich my life as well as the therapeutic work that I do. I am a solo parent of an incredible kiddo, a very fluffy cat, and a menagerie of spoiled plant babies. 

 

Professional:

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and received my masters degree in counseling psychology from Johns Hopkins University in 2015. Some of my therapy speciality areas include working with people who identify as empaths, highly sensitive people, and/or intuitive. I love working with clients who are creative and who think “outside of the box”. My therapy approach is person-centered, empowerment based, transpersonal, and eclectic. I love to incorporate meditation, mindfulness, movement, humor, creativity, and expression into therapy. Many of my clients come to me for help with anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship issues, identity issues, a desire to set better boundaries, recovering from trauma, and for help navigating life changes and transitions. 

 

I am a Registered Massage Practitioner (RMP) and completed my massage therapy training in 2011 at the National Holistic Institute. I have been practicing energy work for over 10 years and am an Usui Reiki Master.
