RACHAEL L. DUNKEL, MS, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Licensed Addiction Counselor, National Board Certified Counselor, Certified Daring Way Facilitator
I believe that all people have, within themselves, the capacity for immense change and growth. Together, we work to solve problems, confront relationship conflict and address personal concerns. My goal as a clinician is to assist individuals with making life affirming choices that lead to a healthier lifestyle. Often times clients have difficulty identifying their inner strengths and abilities so I work with them to shine a light on this part of themselves. In addition, I also work with individuals struggling with drug and alcohol problems, helping them attain and sustain long-term sobriety.
As a clinician, I assist clients in identifying maladaptive patterns of behavior that keep them stuck. This information then empowers them to learn new perspectives and strategies that move them forward toward a more balanced life. I have had extensive training in the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma, self-harming behaviors and substance use disorders.
My approach is genuine, compassionate and empowering. I provide support and a safe place for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings about difficult issues impacting their lives. I would welcome the opportunity to meet and talk with you about your needs and treatment goals.
