Rachel has spent the past five years working as an elementary school social worker and has experience working with individuals and groups of students to address treatment areas including behavioral challenges at home and at school, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety and Depression and adjusting to new and challenging situations. Rachel has experience navigating the process of working with the school system to advocate for and implement behavior supports, special education supports and services and accommodation plans for students with disabilities. Treatment interventions include a variety of rapport and relationship building, play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness and direct skills teaching. Prior to her time in the school system, Rachel had experience leading youth development groups for at risk teenagers in the Holland and Muskegon area.
