Certified IFS and EMDR Therapist

Are you experiencing a sense of being stuck in your life? Moreover, do you feel like nobody truly comprehends your situation? Are you grappling with the internal conflicts of various competing aspects of yourself? It’s possible that you find that the wounded inner child is in conflict with the compliant go-getter, or perhaps the angry part is obstructing the people pleaser. Additionally, maybe the shameful part is in constant turmoil with the workaholic within you. As a result, these inner battles seem unrelenting, and it has become overwhelmingly challenging. The combination of IFS and EMDR therapies offer a chance to address these deep wounds.

Introducing Rachel, a dedicated professional with a rich history of supporting clients. Over the course of many years, Rachel served as both as a physician and director of her medical practice. However, it was during her interactions with patients that something remarkable happened. While engaging with her patients, Rachel discovered a passion that transcended their medical needs. In fact, she consistently sought opportunities to delve deeper and establish more profound connections. This compelling desire to forge stronger bonds with her patients ultimately became the driving force that led Rachel to embark on a transformative journey towards obtaining an advanced degree in mental health.

A Blend of Therapies for Healing Trauma and Anxiety

Rachel possesses specialized training in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), mindfulness, and meditation. Further, Rachel has recently advanced her skills by gaining expertise in Internal Family Systems (IFS). This innovative therapeutic approach focuses on comprehending the intricate internal dynamics within an individual. It conceptualizes the mind as comprising various “parts,” each harboring its own thoughts, emotions, and motivations. Consequently, the IFS method aims to assist clients in exploring and establishing communication with these internal parts in a compassionate and non-judgmental manner. This process enables clients to gain insights into their inner conflicts and facilitates the journey towards healing.

Combining these approaches and Rachel’s life experiences, allows her clients to address their trauma, anxiety, depression, and grief in a manner that is both secure and affirming, leading to meaningful progress.
