Hello, my name is Rachel and I am a licensed professional counselor associate in Texas. I am part of a profession that empowers diverse individuals, families, and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals. I have a varied clinical background that includes areas of trauma (SA/DV), depression, OCD, LGBTQ+, special education, and disabilities.  I rely on my natural empathy, passion, and strong therapeutic skills to help others work through obstacles and struggles, learn new coping skills or tools, and find personal strengths that enable growth. Through clinical experience, compassion, and empathy I support and assist those willing to make a positive difference in their lives. I pride myself in providing a safe and supportive space, to work side by side to overcome any barriers that present themselves.  I am easy-going, quirky, and creative! Life experiences have taught me resilience and resourcefulness. Let’s schedule a meeting and we can see if I am a good fit for you to walk with on this journey.  Thank you for taking the first step and I look forward to hearing from you!
