Hi, I’m Rachel
It’s hard to find a therapist you feel safe to be yourself with. I am a trained and experienced therapist passionate about working with all clients who feel stuck, overwhelmed, different, or just need some better help.
I enjoy working with clients who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, identity exploration, dissociation, and spiritual abuse. I have experience supporting clients all throughout the lifespan, and am happy to welcome teens, adults, and families of all kinds to our in-person or virtual office. My approach is goal-oriented, trauma-informed, solution-focused, collaborative, and client-centered, and I incorporate CBT, DBT, mindfulness, activities, and art.
I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor- Associate supervised by Camille Williams, LPC-S. I obtained my M.S. in Counseling with a focus in LGBTQIA+ Affirmative Therapy from Southern Methodist University.In addition I provide group therapy to survivors of trauma and those with dissociative identity disorder and borderline personality disorder. I also administer various risk and symptom assessments to at-risk individuals in order to assist them in finding the best treatment for their unique situation. In my spare time, I enjoy playing with my cat, writing creatively, and spending time with my family.
I am certified in Trauma Model Therapy, and my trainings include Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Suicide Prevention, and CPR/CPI. I’ve conducted online trainings and presented at professional conferences on Balancing Wellness and Gender-Affirming Care 101. I’m a member of the Texas Counseling Association and an Approved LGBTIA+ HealthCare Provider.
