I’m happy to be joining the practice of Dr. Matt Morris!  Rachel 1

My philosophy is best described as a strengths based, emotionally focused therapy. What this means is I practice from a systemic perspective, utilizing evidence based practices and the innate strengths of my clients to create change and healing in relationships. As a collaborative therapist my job is to honor the experiences of my clients and aid each individual in the creation of secure, safe relationships. There are many ways therapy can work, as every individual, couple and family has a unique story. I create a safe space to explore the uncomfortable things in life, a space where clients can feel supported and respected in the process.

Background

I have my Master of Arts degree in Marriage, Couple and Family Therapy with an emphasis in Sex Therapy from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon. I have extensive experience working with addiction and substance abuse. I’ve helped couples repair trust, improve communication and reignite intimacy.  Additionally, I’ve completed advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and am currently pursing certification in this model.
