My Approach to Helping

Rachel Relkin is a psychotherapist with experience in both individual and group therapy working with individuals with various, cultures, ages, upbringings, sexual identities, sexual preferences, and socio-economic backgrounds.

Rachel has an integrative and eclectic therapeutic approach as she utilizes various treatment modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, person-centered therapy, motivational interviewing, psychodynamic therapy, REBT, solution-focused therapy, trauma and grief counseling.

Rachel’s goal as a therapist is to help guide the individual throughout any difficult situation they may be experiencing, negative feelings they may have towards themselves, the world, or others, and help to identify underlying issues or reported concerns that have led them to therapy. Rachel believes it is important for her clients to feel empowered, more self-aware, and create a strong therapeutic relationship in which the individual is able to process their feelings throughout their time together.

Rachel has worked with individuals and adolescents suffering from depression, anxietystress, suicide ideation, mental health disorders, personality disorders, sexual disorders, eating disorders, traumaPTSD, griefloss, domestic violence, criminal history, homelessness, substance use and struggling with lack of self-esteem, sexual identify, and self-worth.
