Counseling

I am available for counseling through my private practice at 1684 Selby Ave. Saint Paul, Minnesota and can be reached at rachelawes@gmail.com + 612-701-4296.

General focus

I work with adults and adolescents with 26 years experience with presenting concerns of: depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, relationship concerns, adjustment to life changes, and self-esteem.

Therapeutic approach

Research shows the most transformative results through an integrative approach, addressing both the mind and the body. Depending on your unique situation and my appraisal of what will be most helpful, we can work together in some of the following ways:

  • Affirming the beauty and strength in your real stories.
  • Reflection of childhood experiences as they impact you now, honoring how you have coped, and creative processing to illuminate what would best serve you now.
  • Guided imagery and clinical hypnosis.
  • Mindfulness.
  • Mind/body relaxation/calming.
  • Cognitive therapy.
  • Creative/playful.
  • Eclectic.
