About Rachel

I am currently pursuing my doctorate in counseling psychology. I am completing a predoctoral internship working with children, adolescents and families with a wide range of emotional and environmental stressors and mental health needs.

Prior to this, I have 10 years of experiencing working with children with special needs, including children with ADHD, autism, anxiety, and mood related difficulties. I have worked with children from as young as 18 months to 21 years of age. I have successfully collaborated with children, their families, and their teachers to develop comprehensive plans to best support their learning and behavioral success across settings. Specifically, I assisted families and schools with implementing interventions and behavioral strategies to enhance the childrens' success across environments. Additionally, I have worked with teams to implement communication, emotion based, and behavioral programming to enhance daily functioning.

In terms of my teaching experience, I have taught masters level classes as well as undergraduate level classes across social work and psychology departments. I am well versed in psychological concepts, and have a breadth of knowledge in psychological history, theories, and practices. I have tutored doctoral level psychology students in preparation for upcoming comprehensive examinations. I have also met with undergraduate and graduate students to assist them with developing strategies to best accommodate their learning styles and more effectively prepare for papers and tests. In terms of my current availability, I would be available in the evenings and weekends.
