Sometimes life's twists and turns lead us down unexpected paths and we find ourselves feeling alone in our pain or in a place where we no longer recognize ourselves, maybe feeling utterly lost and confused about how to proceed. From such a place we may make choices that are against our values or who we believe ourselves to be, and may even resort to doing whatever it takes to survive - sometimes losing aspects of ourselves in the process. Finding ourselves again and the path forward can be a long, painful and arduous process, which can feel especially isolating and scary. Having a therapist to guide and support you through it can help in many ways.
Though finding the right therapist can be overwhelming and confusing, it is vital to obtaining a positive therapeutic experience and outcome. Therapy is an inherently relational experience and an investment in yourself and your future.
You are invited to peruse this website and learn a bit more about Rachel's approach to therapy. If you think you might work well with her or are interested in participating in one of the groups then please reach out to set up a free 20-minute phone consultation to assist you in determining whether our services will be a good therapeutic fit.
Rachel endeavors to meet each client where they are in the therapeutic change process, and through mutual understanding and collaboration helps to co-create an individualized treatment plan specifically designed to work towards the client's goals with sensitivity and responsiveness to the intersectionality of their culture, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, ability, spirituality, and economic situation (among other factors). Whether pursuing trauma-specific therapy (Rachel's specialty), healing from burn out, coping with chronic illness, addressing substance abuse concerns, working through difficult life transitions or any number of other difficult therapeutic issues; doing so within the context of a secure, healing environment and supportive therapeutic relationship will allow you to face the things that have kept you from a more meaningful and satisfying life.
Rachel is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Addictions Specialist in the state of Colorado and a Nationally Certified Counselor and member of the American Counseling Association. She is also a Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.
The safe space that Rachel created for me was instrumental in helping me do exactly that; feel and heal.
