Rachel Filson, MSW

I want to thank you for taking the time to read this. Researching who you want your counselor to be is one of the first steps to your healing journey. Making the choice of who you feel most comfortable sitting down and discussing your goals and vulnerabilities with is an important and sometimes overwhelming decision.

Working with others to navigate through complex life traumas and finding healing is my passion. My goal in the therapy room is to always help you feel as supported and heard as possible. I use a client-centered approach and focus on the personal strengths and resiliency of each client. I use a range of techniques including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), LGBT-affirmative therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). I often incorporate mindfulness and psychoeducation on the brain’s response to trauma during our sessions. I feel it is crucial to address the mind-body connection in the therapy room in order to address our somatic responses to difficult and overwhelming emotions. The exact therapy modality I use will depend on your unique needs and preferences, as this is YOUR session and you are the expert in your journey. If I can answer any questions, please feel free to reach out to me for a consultation.
