Email about Rachel

As humans, we are always evolving and constantly hoping to learn more, cope better, and make positive changes in our quest for fulfillment in life. While on that journey, Rachel Christensen believes that anyone can benefit from therapy in order to gain new skills, improve self-reflection, and fine-tune goals. From her perspective, therapy can often be a stepping stone to help guests who are wanting to feel more complete or develop into better versions of themselves.

Rachel has a passion for partnering with guests affected by anxiety, depression, relationship troubles, perfectionism, body image insecurities, and major life transitions. While capitalizing on guests’ strengths to empower them, she blends elements of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Interpersonal Psychotherapy, ultimately to support a greater sense of well-being and meaning. Rachel also specializes in using a Whole-Person Approach to help guests impacted by the various losses, role changes, and uncertainties that often accompany having to cope with chronic illness and physical health difficulties.

With the hope of further growth and insight, Rachel’s therapeutic style strikes a balance between coaching guests on new habits and practical skills while also challenging guests to delve more deeply to face any underlying discomfort and uncertainty. Those that work with Rachel experience her as warm and open-minded, as she offers a nonjudgmental, safe space and unconditional positive regard for her guests, allowing them to feel comfortable to explore their thoughts, feelings, and ideal selves.
Rachel is now accepting guests at our Chicago locations.
