Areas of Focus

Children

At this stage in life children are learning and growing all the time. They are ever exploring and full of energy. This should be a time of innocence and joy, but sometimes experiences happen that catapult children into situations that make things too big or scary for them to cope with. Rachel's goal is to give children the safe space they need to move through those big and scary times so they can get back to just being a kid. She wholeheartedly believes that play is the first way we learn to communicate, which is why she incorporates play, art, and other creative activities when working with children as much as possible. It is in these times of creative expression that children can be allowed to explore and share feelings they may not have consciously known existed. Through these discoveries, healing can begin to take place.

Adolescents

Young Adults

During this time in life many transitions take place; the starting college, moving, getting a job, the beginning and ending of relationships, and the ever increasing level of responsibility. It is also a time of self discovery and exploration, a time to really come into your own and decide who you want to be and what you want to do in life. Although these transitions and discoveries can be exciting, they can also bring about stress and anxiety. Rachel's goal is to provide a safe space where clients can feel heard, understood, and fully process the difficulties that these transitions can bring about. She believes that through gaining awareness of yourself and becoming honest about the barriers preventing healing, personal goals can be achieved and true transformation can happen.

Children

Adolescents

Being a teenager is hard. At this stage in life they are starting to develop their identity, what they believe, and striving for more independence from their parents. With that has always come many social and developmental struggles. However, teens today are growing up in a much more complex environment, with more social and developmental struggles then ever dealt with before. Cyber bullying, constant access to technology, video games, social media overload, and the list goes on. These factors have heavily increased the amount of mental health issues among teens today. My goal is to equip teens with the tools they need to navigate through the highs and lows of growing up by providing a safe space that is all their own to communicate their thoughts, feelings, and needs. Although teens are not in the same developmental stage as children, I still find it useful to use creative expression such as art and play, in an age appropriate way, to help teens work through the variety of challenges they face.
