Hello and welcome! My name is Rachel Gloer, and I am a licensed clinical social worker in California with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked in both medical and outpatient mental health settings providing therapy. This has allowed me to gain a wide range of experience with clients, including depression, anxiety, grief and bereavement, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges and other transitional concerns. I also have a lot of experience working with people who have suffered physical trauma or emotional abuse. Much of my experience has been working with children and teenagers and I have truly enjoyed it!
Clients have said that my counseling style is very cooperative, interactive and supportive. I believe that you are the expert of your life, and it is my role to offer suggestions, tools and encouragement. It is very common to have times when you feel out of control, confused, sad or scared. I would love nothing more than to spend time with you talking about your concerns and finding ways to help.
I believe in treating each person with respect, sensitivity and compassion. My approach combines solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic and narrative therapy techniques. Ultimately, it’s about figuring out what works best for you. I will adjust my approach to best meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to take the first steps towards change, but it can lead to a more fulfilling and happier life. I am here to help and support in any way I can. I have a very flexible schedule and can be available evenings and weekends.
Congratulations on having already taken one of the hardest steps. You are that much closer to your goal, and I hope we can work together to help you reach it.

I am grateful to have had an opportunity to work with Rachel Gloer. She gave good feedback - to my questions and my "ranting" over my seeming impossible situation.
Kind. Supportive. Patient.
