My Approach to Helping
Rachel Landman is an experienced psychotherapist who works with a wide client base: individual adults, couples, adolescents, children, and families.
Rachel’s approach is highly personalized for each client. She provides a warm and nonjudgmental environment to foster strong therapeutic relationships with an emphasis on trust and acceptance. She understands everyone needs someone who will listen and accept them for who they are.
Rachel’s primary focus is on existential issues, engulfed in the psychodynamic approach using a toolbox of CBT skills (mostly ACT and DBT). Her overarching goal is to help the client feel that he or she is able to face any future challenges confidently.
In the past, Rachel has worked in a school setting with children on the autism spectrum or with developmental, social, or emotional problems. She also has spent time career counseling for adults and children, working with adults with mental health and substance use issues, and couples counseling.
Rachel holds a Master’s (M.Ed. and M.A.) degree in Mental Health Counseling from Teacher’s College Columbia University. She is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC).
Originally from Switzerland, Rachel provides services in English as well as German.
