“The choice was counseling or separation. Rachel saw us at our worst,

and helped us on our way back to being our best. Rachel helped us fight

for our marriage and our family instead of fighting each other.”

MSW, LICSW, Director of Clinical Services

“An ongoing passion of mine is to help couples through difficult moments. Sometimes it’s with people coming out of the haze of raising children, or just putting in years and years together and looking over the breakfast table and wondering, ‘Why am I here with you?” The best part is bringing all the evidence-based science of relationships to the problem and seeing a change, sometimes just over a two-day retreat. I love helping partners find that glimmer of hope after not feeling it for so long.”

Rachel combines a fierce intelligence with a calm equanimity. Her focus is deep, while her manner is preternaturally good humored, relaxed and hard to ruffle. Rachel is able to maintain her poise in high conflict situations and can help a couple balance and find their way back to their better selves and to the important conversations. She balances her compassionate stance with a rigorous commitment to lifelong learning in evidence-based treatments.
