"Mostly, when I sit with clients, I have no concept of myself as a psychologist or them as clients. We are just two people in a room, collaborating and exploring what is going to strengthen their psyche and restore a sense of wholeness." Rachel is deeply interested in how we heal our lives and relationships and effect change and growth. Rachel tailors her approach to your unique personality and needs.
