Rachel grew up on the east coast of the United States, eventually landing in New York City. She received her BS at Boston University and her MSW from Fordham University.
Rachel has extensive experience working with young adults and young professionals. She is passionate about working with recovering perfectionists experiencing burnout, faltering self-esteem, anxiety, body image concerns, eating disorders, and relationship difficulties. An ex-ballet dancer, Rachel has a particular interest in working with clients who grew up in entertainment or were athletes and are struggling with the burnout that comes with such high-pressure environments.
Rachel is empathetic, warm, action-oriented, and straightforward in her approach. She allows clients to determine the course of their healing. At the center of Rachel’s work with her clients is the importance of the mind/body connection to help clients regulate their nervous systems and live a more balanced life. In addition, Rachel and her clients explore their unconscious needs and desires. She works with clients to challenge negative thought patterns in order to foster self-awareness and create meaningful change.
In her free time, Rachel enjoys running, traveling, reading, crocheting, and spending time with friends and family. Her favorite New York City activity is walking around and exploring new neighborhoods and restaurants. She loves that the city allows everything to be at your fingertips, but as an act of self-care, she acknowledges the need to escape the city and see some greenery once in a while!
