RACHEL SMITH, LICENSED CLINICAL PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR (LCPC)
Rachel is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor experienced with clients across the lifespan and in multiple treatment settings. Her journey as a therapist began in 2009 as a certified addictions counselor and transitioned to mental health therapy after graduating with her Master of Science in Mental Health Counseling. Rachel currently works full-time as a mental health therapist within the public-school system helping special education students achieve their goals through therapy, classroom collaboration, and advocacy.
In her part-time private practice, she helps children, adolescents, and young adults manage anxiety, depression, ASD, and ADHD; build self-esteem; overcome school challenges; and move smoothly through life’s transitions. In sessions, clients may explore and overcome these struggles using cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, movement, creativity, music, and humor. Her knowledge of the public education system makes her a valuable advocate for students with educational challenges.
