Hello there! I’m Rachel, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) with 12 years of experience accompanying adults as they seek healing, stability, and growth.
To do this, I’ve focused my training and practice on Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and Motivational Interviewing (MI) modality, both with a Trauma-Informed Care (TIC) lens. These therapeutic approaches are useful in addressing trauma, stress, depression, anxiety, grief, loss, procrastination, decision-making, problem-solving, motivation, anger, and relationship issues, along with other adversities life may bring. Ultimately, we will figure out, together, an approach to best reach your goals.
I’m licensed to practice in Minnesota and Massachusetts. I’m based in St. Paul, MN to see folks in person, and I offer a virtual option for residents of both states.
For my own self-care and enjoyment, I keep bees, brew beer, ride my moped, and take long walks with my dog, Raisin.
