Get to know Rachael

Rachael Dolf, LMSW is a therapist at our Cedar Falls location. Prior to this role, she was a therapist at a community health center for over a year. Her experiences as a mental health professional have allowed her to continue learning alongside her patients. This includes adapting to new needs that are presented and showing people that they are not alone.

She gets it

Rachael understands both sides of a session very well. Obviously, as a therapist, but also as a human being with mental health needs. She has had her own experiences with anxiety and the stigma surrounding mental health and wellness. Her goal is to offer genuine support and contribute positively to how mental health is viewed in society.

Everyone deserves the ability to grow

It is her belief that every single person deserves to feel safe as they learn, grow, and make positive changes in their lives. The ability to offer that safe environment is something she is grateful for in her career.

While many of her therapeutic approaches are clinical by nature, she also enjoys using sarcasm and humor in sessions when appropriate. Laughter can be very helpful in the healing process, and sarcasm is Rachael’s own idea of a love language. Further, she is not afraid to laugh at herself and the embarrassing things she may do.

Outside of work, Rachael enjoys cooking and spending time with her Mini Australian Shepherd, Sammy. She’s also been known to binge watch a show or two.

Get direction for your life!

Emotions are stupid

Most of our poor decisions and behaviors that we wish we could re-do are driven by our feelings. In most cases we are probably reacting from an emotion and not even really thinking!

Oppositional Defiant Disorder

ODD is one of the most common behavioral disorders among kids. Unfortunately, people exhibiting these behaviors are sometimes mislabeled as "naughty" or "bad," which can be damaging.

Connecting With Your Teen

Regulate your emotions and then engage in co-regulation with your teen from a place of curiosity and compassion.
