Presently, her private practice focuses mental health therapy for children, adolescents, and families who struggle with issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, ADHD and life transitions.
Rachel was introduced to Gracia by a former board member who invited her to travel to Guatemala. Rachel was impressed and in awe of Las Mujeres Fuertes, the Workroom, the GET Program, and the unwavering dedication of Gracia’s BOD to achieving its mission. As a mother of 4 daughters, Rachel finds herself committed to women’s rights and their access to equal opportunities. In her spare time Rachel loves spending time with her family, friends and her Chocolate Lab, Ruby. She enjoys running, yoga, travel and getaways into the beautiful outdoors in her home state of Wisconsin.
