Portrait of Rachel Gabrielle

Rachel Gabrielle


Psychotherapist. Ponderer. Pop Culture Savant.

Hi, I’m Rachel. I help women of all backgrounds and neurotypes realize their full potential through my practical therapeutic sensibility. I am neurodivergent as well as a chronic illness sufferer and I know what it's like to navigate the world with ailments that are invisible to others. Counseling was not my first career (or even my second), but as I grew to accept my strengths and limitations instead of trying to fit in, I finally found where I belong.  

By now you’ve seen all of the letters that come after my name. Those are hard-won, but not the most important piece of our potential journey together. I have over a decade of experience in mental health and am always striving to learn and grow. My true passion is seeing my clients start to live by their own rules and expectations . And maybe dismantling the patriarchy while we’re at it.

I received my bachelor’s degree in journalism from Seattle University and a master’s degree in clinical psychology from the Washington School of Professional Psychology. My work and training with organizations like Planned Parenthood and the Northwest Alliance for Psychoanalytic Study has fundamentally informed my practice, as has my clinical experience working with university counseling centers, in-patient therapy for disordered eating, and community mental health facilities. I am constantly seeking out new skills and have most recently completed training in nature based therapy and neurodivergent affirming care.

A proud Seattleite, my writing has appeared in publications like The Stranger and Seattle Metropolitan Magazine. As a child, I was nicknamed "The Candy Queen" for my discerning opinions about all things sweet and eventually had my own monthly dessert column! Out of office, you can find me gardening,  obsessing over the newest eyeshadow palette, and catching up on reality tv with my husband and pups, Jefferson and Franklin.

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.

Carl Jung

Self-esteem is the ability to see yourself as a flawed individual and still hold yourself in high regard.

Esther Perel

Love is the will to extend oneself for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth.
