Believing in God and having a personal relationship with Him has saved my life time and time again. I've gone through many trials in my life that left me feeling completely defeated and lost. Even when I felt He had forgotten me, somehow He has always shown me that he was there all along, sort of like the footprints in the sand. I grew up in a Christian home and being an active part of the church was always important to my parents. Up to my dad's final breath, he was quoting scripture regarding healing. Now, although I can't explain why his body wasn't healed, I can attest to the power of prayer and the Word in the Bible.
I incorporate faith into my counseling practice as each client guides us to do so. It can be as big or little of an influence as you want it to be. I do believe by incorporating principles of faith and love into my practice, I am more successful with people from all walks of life.
My favorite scripture is 2 Corinthians 5:17 which talks about all of us being new when we are in Christ and that all the old, bad junk from before is washed away. I love it because we all have that junk in our past. This verse reminds us how forgiving and full of grace Jesus Christ actually is!

Rachel is very professional and caring. She uses her experience to guide me the sessions. She is sympathetic and empathetic to the needs of her clients. It has been a blessing to have her as my counselor.
I absolutely think Rachel is very intelligent and educated in this field. She is also, from my experience with her, very knowledgeable and grounded in her faith. I definitely recommend her!
Very supportive and encouraging. Insightful too. Gifted counselor for sure. I definitely feel her energy/support even outside of our interactions.
Rachel excels in the online therapy arena. In a place that can seem distant or impersonal, she makes an effort to really connect with her clients, listen, share feedback and actionable steps.
She is awesome.
