hi, I'm Rachel
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Clinical Art Therapist in Ventura County, California. I have always been captivated by people's stories. My passion is helping people heal, and find relief and a sense of peace.
I earned a Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy with specialized training in Clinical Art Therapy from Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles. I have been working with clients since 2015, and I am humbled by the opportunity to hold space for my clients to share their stories and release the burdens they have been carrying.
When not providing therapy, you will find me with my family and friends, growing vegetables and native plants, learning about folk herbalism, enjoying concerts, hosting gatherings, being in nature, doing yoga and making art.
I use somatic therapy modalities including EMDR, Brainspotting, and Art Therapy as well as talk therapy and mindfulness to help my clients feel better. I also use developmental needs-meeting strategy to help people re-parent themselves and meet their own needs. I specialize in treating trauma and have a lot of experience helping people recover from narcissistic abuse or having a narcissistic parent/alcoholic parent.I love helping people who had difficult childhoods heal and live full, satisfying lives.
I am currently training to be a sex therapist at California Institute of Integral Studies. I am currently working with my clients around sexual issues.
I love working with therapists!
I am now offering intensives.
My fees are $225/45 min session and $350/90 min session.
