About Rachel:

Rachel’s passion is to help people discover their personal gifts and strengths to achieve self-acceptance, create a healthy relationship with food, mind and body, and find meaning and fulfillment in work and life roles. She works in a broad range of areas including depression, anxiety, relationship, mindfulness, career counseling, wellness and work life balance coaching. Her areas of specialty and expertise are emotional and compulsive overeating, binge eating, yo-yo dieting, and helping people create the life they’re meant to live.


Rachel has helped clients of all ages with food and body image issues, relationship, career, and personal concerns from students through adults nearing retirement. Rachel’s professional path includes therapy and career counseling in university, government, and healthcare settings as well as employee assistance programs with prior experience in human resources, training and workshop facilitation. Having spent several years living and working overseas, Rachel has practical insight into cross-cultural issues, and dealing with culture shock and relocation.

Keys to Rachel’s success as a counselor are her skills in perceiving situations intuitively, quickly assessing and focusing on strengths, compassionate style, empathetic concern for others while understanding their needs and aspirations, and integrating multiple facets of people to maximize their potential.


Therapy and career counseling is a collaborative partnership using a holistic (incorporating all aspects of your self), self-compassionate, mindful, strengths-based perspective. Cooperatively, goals are set and worked on through a process of learning and growing, while developing new tools and strategies for managing change. Discovering and utilizing our own personal gifts and strengths is the key to health, happiness and meaningful change.
