MA, LMHC

Intersectional feminist. Psychotherapist. Candy Freak.

Hi, I’m Rachel. I help womxn of all backgrounds realize their full potential through my practical therapeutic sensibility. I am discerning. I am no-nonsense. I am sick of the status quo. I look for meaning where others do not. I love the delicate art of depth oriented work that is so hard to find in our current self help climate and continue to pursue myself. Counseling was not my first career (or even my second), but as I grew to accept my own gifts and talents instead of trying to squeeze into the box I thought I should be 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 have a fondness for working with the complexities women bring to my office. My true passion is seeing my clients grow to not need me anymore. 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 with organizations like Planned Parenthood and Sound Mental Health 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. With over a decade of mental health experience, I also coach new therapists with their businesses. I am constantly seeking out new skills and have most recently completed Gottman couples training and Discernment Counseling.

A proud Seattleite, my writing has appeared in publications like The Stranger and Seattle Metropolitan Magazine. Out of office, you can find me nursing my back pain from crouching in my garden, catching up on reality tv with my pups, Jefferson and Franklin, by my side, or in hot pursuit of dessert!

Let's Work Together

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

Esther Perel

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

Carl Jung

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