About Rachel

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with over a decade of clinical experience, I absolutely love what I do - and I think it shows.  It is an honor that individuals and couples, and sometimes entire family systems, choose to let me into their lives and allow me to walk along beside them through the hurt and pain, as well as the joy, fulfillment, and empowerment  within the therapeutic process.

I incorporate the latest research-proven approaches, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), Interpersonal Neurobiology & Attachment Theory, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Experiential Therapy.  As a spouse of a retired American soldier, I am deeply passionate and specialized in serving those who sacrifice so much - first responders, military, and their family members.

I have been highly trained in addressing acute issues related to relationships, including couples and individuals who have extensive relationship and attachment issues, infidelity and trust concerns, boundary issues, and communication/conflict resolutions issues.  

Other areas of specialty include trauma (i.e., childhood, relationship, workplace, public safety traumas), anxiety and distress, issues with work-life balance and perfectionism. 

I am an active member of the AAMFT (American Association of Marriage and Family Therapists), and continue to display commitment to life long learning, attending many professional development workshops and completing additional certifications in the field of psychology, neurobiology and trauma, attachment, and couples therapy and psychology.  Additionally, I am an Approved Supervisor with AZ Board of Behavioral Health Examiners.


I am dedicated to supporting patients within their journeys of change, as well as leaving the field of psychotherapy more hopeful and joy-filled than I entered it. That is my intention with the growth of Restoration Psychological Services - to facilitate excellent therapy and participate in the development and training of excellent Marriage and Family Therapists.
