Therapist in Atlanta


Hello! I’m Rachel

I am a therapist in Atlanta. I love to help individuals and premarital couples grow and explore ways to find their best selves. I see my clients as co-therapists in their treatment. 

A passion of mine is to help premarital couples with effective communication and help them build fondness and admiration for one another. 

My perspective on religion and spirituality is open-minded, welcoming, and I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist. 

I blend the following approaches to help the premarital couples I work with:

  • Prepare Enrich
  • Gottman Method Couples Therapy

This means we’ll set goals that you and your partner agree on and use exercises in session to build skills to have better communication and conflict resolution. 


I also provide individual counseling to adults and teens (16 and up). 

I use a blend of a few approaches to personalize our work together with:

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) 
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

This means we’ll use homework to make sure your new skills stick and build up solid ways to cope with life. I’m also a big fan of using therapy books and workbooks to dive deeper into your concerns. 

Clients tend to like my down-to-earth and direct approach to therapy. I also love to use humor with my clients!

I use a combination of interventions to meet clients where they are and assist them in meeting their goals. 

When I’m not working with clients, I love to travel, practice yoga, and visit tea shops. 

I’m a recovering perfectionist and a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Over time, I’ve learned to set boundaries and become assertive.

Those things you’re wanting to work on… I’ve truly experienced them too. Let’s work on your goals together. 

I help perfectionists be kinder to themselves and others.
I help Highly Sensitive People (HSP) achieve balance and security in their lives.
I help premarital couples build a strong foundation for their marriage.
I help anxious people gain assertiveness skills and set boundaries for themselves and with others.
I help people feel more comfortable and confident in their bodies and their sex lives.
I help students feel confident in applying to grad school to become therapists.
I help new therapists build confidence while building their business.
