Rachel Rogers believes we are all a combination of what we are born with, what society lays upon us, and what we pick up ourselves along the way. Sometimes we come to counseling because a clearly significant experience has impacted us and we need perspective or insight. Sometimes there is an underlying feeling that keeps tugging at us. Whatever has led you to therapy – Rachel believes everyone deserves someone who is their unconditional support system.
Rachel believes it is an honor to accompany her clients alongside their journeys. It is her belief that we can “grow through what we go through” and she aims to help everyone she interacts with achieve the most fulfilling life possible. Rachel believes that individual healing can lead to healing a family, healing communities, and eventually healing systems and structures. Everyone is equipped with the skills and qualities necessary to have inner peace, but often they just need some guidance.
