Rachel has received basic training in EMDR and is currently in a Somatic Experiencing (SE) training program.

Before starting at LLPW, Rachel worked in community mental health settings, with a focus on crisis stabilization and support.
Rachel is drawn to themes of emotional resilience and recovery, believing there is always a path for healing even in the most difficult times. She also enjoys working with individuals who identify as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP) or who experience emotional sensitivities.
