Rachel Schwartz, LCAT, MT-BC, CASAC

“Therapy is a place to explore yourself, your feelings, your behaviors, and experiences. It is a place to gain self-awareness and insight. It is a place to express what is not always easy to communicate and release. It can be a place where the work is uncomfortable, but is also a place where you can find comfort. I am here as a guide and support in that journey.”

I have 10 years experience working with clients who are experiencing/have experienced trauma, psychosis, mood disorders, and addiction. I have less than 5 years experience working with children of trauma, adjustment disorder, and behavioral issues.

I work with people on a wide range of issues. The following are a few of my specialties (this list is not all-inclusive):

  • Addiction

  • Codependency

  • Psychiatric Issues

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Trauma

  • Life Transitions

  • Children Facing Parents' Separation and/or Divorce.  

If I have never been to therapy before, what should I expect? How do I know if I should go, and how do I start?

The first session is an introduction. I am there to listen and support you. If you are questioning going, then it is worth exploring those feelings. You have nothing to lose from going to therapy. At the very least, you will learn more about yourself and what you want from therapy.
