Get to know Rachel

Rachel Van Wickle, LMFT is a wife and mother and understands the challenges that come with balancing many different roles.

A relatable perspective

Rachel is not only a provider, but also a recipient of the benefits of therapy. She has seen the effects of mental illness within her own family. As a result, Rachel has insight into different family situations and ways that people might cope. She knows that therapy makes a difference and is proud to provide that for other people.

Forming relationships

Rachel loves creating personal connections. Learning about different ideas, perspectives, and the ways of life is enjoyable to her. She feels privileged to help others as they help themselves. Being authentic is important to her and she does so by speaking openly and honestly. As a result, individuals feel more comfortable with her. Her genuine nature allows her to form more of those relationships that she strives for. In turn, people bring their truest self into sessions so they can make progress.

Further, she provides an empathetic and non-judgmental space where individuals can feel heard and understood.

Developing skills

One of the most rewarding things to witness is when people develop a stronger sense of self-identity. Learning who they are and what drives them is a huge step in the therapy process. When healthy coping skills are learned, people are able to better manage their feelings. She loves seeing a person handle difficult situations with the skills she has helped them develop.

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.
