Therapy for Depression, Anxiety, and Managing Big Emotions

Our emotions are meant to give us information about what we need, enrich our lives, and lead to wholehearted living, but so often, it can feel like our emotions are controlling us. This can look like feeling so down we don’t have the motivation to do the things we want. Or, perhaps the energy is there, but intense worry is standing in our way of approaching that goal. You might be working so hard to avoid distressing emotions that you are missing out on the parts of life you really value. Maybe your emotional distress and reactions to other people and events around you feel so strong and surprising that it leaves you exhausted, hurting, isolated, and misunderstood.


Symptoms of depression and Anxiety might be experienced as:

  • Feeling down or sad, even if you aren’t sure why

  • You can’t feel the joy in things you previously loved to do

  • Doubting your worth and sense of self

  • Unmotivated

  • Isolated, like you are the only one who feels this way

  • Judging yourself much more harshly than you would anyone else 

  • Like you can’t “turn off” your thoughts and be fully present 

  • Having a hard time not taking things personally

  • Difficulty sleeping, leaving you exhausted 

Therapy can help. We provide a compassionate place to gain insight and an encouraging environment to learn tools to feel more grounded, survive the painful waves, and feel better. We believe in a future where you don’t have to feel afraid of your emotions and are not just surviving, but building a life you are proud to be living.

Together we can work on:

  • Creating a supportive environment to process your feelings

  • Practicing self-compassion

  • Gaining insight into personal and environmental factors that are impacting your experiences

  • Building non-judgemental mindfulness skills to create separation from our thoughts and more presence in the moment. 

  • Learning healthy coping skills to survive distressing moments and help regulate your emotions over time

  • Interpersonal effectiveness skills to be able to communicate what you need and maintain your self-respect.

Rachel is an out-of-network provider not directly contracted with insurance companies. The majority of clients who have private insurance are eligible to be reimbursed for a significant portion of their fees for services. A Superbill, in other words a receipt of services that contains all of the information needed to submit to insurance for reimbursement, can be provided upon request. 


To determine if your insurance provider offers out-of-network coverage reimbursement call your member services line (usually listed on the back of your insurance card) and ask:

  • What are my mental health insurance benefits?

  • Does my plan cover services to out-­of­-network mental health providers?

  • What is my out-of-network deductible?

  • What is the coverage amount per therapy session for an out-of-network provider?

  • How many sessions does my plan cover in a year? How many sessions do I have left?

  • Do I need pre­-authorization or a referral from my PCP to see a therapist?

  • How much time do I have to file a claim for out-­of­-network services?

  • What is the process to get reimbursed for out­-of-­network services?


Helpful Tip: many insurance companies have smartphone member apps that allow you to take a picture of your superbill and submit for reimbursement within just a few seconds online.
