Rachel Holtz is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who utilizes a trauma informed, strengths based, and relational approach with the children, teens and adults.
I believe people are inherently good and are capable of growth and healing through therapy. I practice therapy with warmth and compassion in order to create a safe, supported, and trusted relationship. I work with children, teens, and adults who experience anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, behavioral challenges, and general life stressors.
My work with children often focuses on play, art, and role-play as vehicles for expression and exploration. Fundamental to my work with children is meeting with their parents to build on our work in sessions.
With adolescents and adults, I help clients to safely process and explore emotions or experiences that may feel overwhelming or difficult. You will learn to better understand how thoughts, feelings, and past experiences impact their current lives.
My goal for all of my clients is for them to feel less alone, develop new ways of coping, and gain a greater sense of connection to themselves and all with whom they interact.
