A Bit About Rachel

Rachel has worked in a variety of settings with diverse population groups including the non profit sector with newly arriving refugees and homeless families, outpatient and residential mental health providing DBT skills groups to adolescents, and hospital and clinic based medical settings providing psychosocial support to families with a child or teen with a medical condition. While working in the Diabetes clinic at Seattle Children's Hospital Rachel developed a love for working with teens and young adults diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and their parents.
Rachel is a strengths-based clinician that believes her clients are the true experts of their lives, and therefore takes a collaborative approach to working with clients. She has training and experience in a variety of evidenced based practices (EBPs) including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She enjoys taking a client based approach of utilizing aspects of each of these EBPs in a way that meets the client’s unique needs; however, can offer a more standardized curriculum version of these EBPs if requested. 
Outside of work Rachel loves to travel and eat good food with her family and friends. She is the mother to three precious daughters. Her oldest daughter, Mira Azalea, died shortly after birth due to medical complications. Her three daughters invite her to hold the both/and of loss and gratitude, pain and joy, everyday.
