Rachel Finch

MA NCC/LPC

I enjoy working with young adults to support with stress management, life transitions, anxiety, and trauma. I truly enjoy building safe, collaborative relationships with my clients and seeing their growth in reaching goals.

I am trained in Brainspotting for trauma and anxiety. I am also trained in Synergetic Play Therapy for emotional and behavioral problems.

I specialize in children, preteens, and teens. I started my career as a school counselor and will always keep room on my caseload for our youth. I started ITSCO to give more school-aged children an opportunity to see skilled, licensed, and dedicated therapists to meet their needs. 

IMG_4478_edited.jpg

Navigating life's problems is each of our responsibility and sometimes it is beneficial to find someone to step into our lives and encourage us to make the decisions that can help carve a path to better. A path that is tailored to YOUR specific needs that makes sense for YOU.

My populations are kids aged 4 to 17, adults, and couples. I see clients on weekends and my caseload is typically 70% youth and 30% adults. My client gender breakdown is also 70/30 with men and boys as the majority. My approaches are based on the tenants of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational-Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and Synergetic Play Therapy.

I believe in empowering the individual by encouragement, building trust/respect, increasing self understanding , and personal growth. I believe that we all can grow and strive to be our better self with support and learning new tools.

I believe every individual and family is unique and wonderful, so I draw from a variety of strategies. Typically I focus on  humanistic and Person-centered counseling which focuses on congruence/genuineness, unconditional positive regard, and empathy.  I like to use interventions from CBT, DBT, mindfulness, Narrative Therapy, as well as art therapy and play therapy.

COUNSELOR CANDIDATE

I believe that building trust, understanding, and mutual respect is essential to any counseling relationship. I do not expect a client to trust me or take her advice right away. I am prepared and excited to earn the trust of my client and get to know them as a whole person, not just their problems.

I have a passion for supporting the development disability community, especially parents, caregivers, and siblings. I work with clients and families who may have an intellectual, developmental or a behavioral diagnosis. I also have a passion for working with families who are seeking healing after domestic violence, specifically families who are beyond the initial crisis intervention who are now beginning a new life after Domestic Violence.

COUNSELOR

I have experience with students as they experience pre-deployment, deployment, and post-deployment in group settings where they are able to build relationships and bonds with others experiencing the same situation. I have worked with youth as they have advocated their identity and then supported their needs as they have “come out” to their loved ones. 

I believe everyone deserves a second chance. No matter what our difficulties are in the past and present, it does not define who we are in the future. I am a lifelong learner who tries to instill the same passion in my clients as education is the key to unlocking our future. I strive to advocate for children as they learn to express their needs and desires. I use my background as a teacher, school counselor, and administrator to help facilitate the change necessary to unlock a better future. 

CLINICAL PRACTICE ASSISTANT

I offer an EFT background which is based heavily on the therapeutic alliance. So being that person that shows up continuously and creates that safe space for my clients is my main goal. I validate emotional needs, meeting client where they are at, and extending effective resources.

I specialize in trauma, racial identity, behavioral issues, impulse control disorders and mood disorders. My client focus is with preteens and teens. My treatment strategies are trauma focused, multicultural, attachment based, emotionally focused, humanistic, and cognitive behavioral therapy.

I also have training in play therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), expressive arts therapy, and sandtray therapy.

I am passionate about working with children, adolescents, and their families. I believe in incorporating a variety of methods and techniques in order to create an individualized treatment plan that will keep the client interested and engaged in the therapeutic process, and I strive to create a warm, supportive space to assist in their healing journey.

COUNSELOR CANDIDATE

I am passionate about empowering teens to manage and express their own emotions and develop the ability to change their thoughts and feelings. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, mood regulation, anger, and panic attacks among adolescents.

I believe in the counseling process and its ability to positively change lives. I offer a compassionate, non-judgmental, and strength based approach by focusing on the clients goals and working together to make progress toward achieving those goals. Building a positive therapeutic relationship with my client is of upmost importance to support personal growth and development. I enjoy working with teens experiencing anxiety and depression, exploring healthy work/school/social/life balance and encouraging healthy boundaries.

COUNSELOR CANDIDATE

I offer an allyship to clients as a source of strength for self-exploration and building interpersonal relational skills. I build empathy through active listening and invite potential clients through the use of psychoeducation in gently redirection from false narratives regarding psychology.

My ideal client suffers with low self-esteem, incomplete identity formation, and attachment issues. Their goal is to feel connected to their community and gain a sense of purpose. They need to understand the importance of their role and a sense of their strengths. They want reassurance of their worth to give meaning and understanding to their actions. This is vital in developing a strong self-concept necessary for strong relationship skills, self mangement, and responsible decision making.

Intern

My passion is working with pre-teens and teenagers. I understand the unique challenges and developmental needs that they face during this critical stage of life. My goal is to create a safe and supportive environment where they can explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences.

I teach effective coping skills to help young individuals manage stress, handle emotions, and navigate challenging situations. These skills empower them to make healthier choices and build emotional resilience. I assist clients in developing and maintaining healthy peer relationships, addressing issues such as bullying, social anxiety, and peer pressure. I work with them to improve communication skills and build positive connections.

COUNSELOR CANDIDATE

I use a Rogerian approach to therapy. I believe in using Unconditional Positive Regard and empathy with all clients I come across, which I find to be especially helpful in working with young teens. My passion is to work with adolescent clients who are working through stress, anxiety, depression and/or LGBTQ+ issues.

I try to meet my client where they are at. If they aren't ready to dig deep with me yet, I try to establish rapport by getting to know the client and allowing them to get to know me. My number one passion is suicide prevention. I experienced the loss of someone via suicide at a young age and I aspire to support others through their darkest moments. I also have a love for pinup and I participate in pinup contests!

Clincal Social Worker

As a therapist, my role is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals with personality disorders to explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I can help them understand the underlying causes of their difficulties and work towards developing healthier coping mechanisms and improved interpersonal skills. Treatment often involves long-term therapy, such as dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) or cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).

I also specialize with Major Mental Illnesses.  I provide support, education, and therapy tailored to the specific mental illness. I can help clients manage their symptoms, cope with the challenges they face, and improve their overall quality of life.

Having spent five years as a classroom educator and specializing in Applied Behavior Analysis, I bring extensive experience in assisting children facing behavioral challenges, especially when these challenges hinder their academic and social achievements.

Empathy begins with listening and seeking to understand. I have built strong relationships with my clients and students by learning about and sharing in their interests and passions, giving them time and space to share with me, and valuing their input. Even the youngest of children deserve to have agency in their care, and to be given the tools and time to communicate their feelings and needs.
