Rachel has extensive training in equine assisted psychotherapy as well as other creative paths to helping people. Rachel’s goal is to create a safe environment where she can enable her client(s) to achieve positive changes, including changes in thoughts, behaviors, goals, perspectives, or in self-esteem and confidence. Her ultimate purpose in psychotherapy is to strengthen her clients’ sense of purpose and resolve to the point at which they no longer need help. All therapy is focused on developing the tools required to cope with the normal frustrations and setbacks of life as well as overcoming hurtful and self-defeating habits by taking charge of thoughts, emotions, and an individual’s environment.
Rachel spent seven years working for the local nonprofit, Windwood Farm Home for Children and Family Services as an outpatient psychotherapist to learn how to help those for whom she is most passionate. Her training has enabled her to help people connect with themselves, one another, and the world around them.

She was formerly EAGALA certified (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning) from 2010-2016 and received Natural Lifemanship Advanced Training in 2017 (Trauma Focused Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Model). In addition, Rachel was a former outpatient psychotherapist with Charleston Counseling Center group practice serving individuals and families.
