DR RACHEL WHITE PHD LMFT
Welcome to Restoration Psychological Services!
As a trained Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, with over 12 years 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 families, 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, and Experiential Therapy. As a spouse of an American soldier, I am deeply passionate about serving those who sacrifice so much - first responders, military, and family members.
I specialize in the facilitation of therapy with couples and individuals, particularly related to the following topics and experiences:
Relationship & Attachment Issues
Communication & Conflict Resolution
Anxiety, Perfectionism, People-Pleasing, Work-Life Balance
Military / First Responders and family members
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. I am currently pursuing becoming an AAMFT-Approved Supervisor.
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 of excellent therapists.
ABBY DENNISON, MFT INTERN
I believe in providing an atmosphere of safety and support for couples and individuals experiencing some of life’s most difficult circumstances. As a former police officer, I have a passion for helping those who put their lives on the line daily to help others. I am also married to a police sergeant and understand firsthand the ups and downs that accompany being a law enforcement spouse and family. It is a joy and an honor to hold spaces for the vulnerable, sacred moments my clients bring.
