Rachael Alba is a licensed therapist serving Rhode Island and Washington State. She is a reproductive and trauma therapist helping women navigating infertility, perinatal mood disorders, pregnancy or infant loss, and termination of pregnancies. She also works with individuals who are seeking healing from trauma, anxiety, and grief unrelated to reproduction. Rachael’s approach is collaborative and strengths based.
Rachael helps clients move from hopeless and discouraged to healthy and thriving. She helps her clients find confidence, clarity, and peace by equipping them with the tools they need to navigate challenges and grieve their losses. She also guides clients through decision making challenges pertaining to infertility and early parenthood. Anxiety and grief are common categories that are present in Rachael's work with a wide range of clients. Helping you to find effective support and direction is a primary priority in Rachael’s work with all of her clients.
Many solutions for trauma, anxiety, and loss are generalized, one-size-fits-all models that leave you feeling uncertain about your progress. Rachael provides integrative and holistic care that prioritizes your particular situation as the foundation for your work together. She offers a safe and inviting space for you to be well seen and heard. From that place, she works with you to craft a plan that is goal specific and actively propels you toward the life you desire.
Rachael holds an MA in Counseling Psychology and a BA in Human Development. She is also PMH-C Certified in reproductive mental health. Rachael has completed a number of post-graduate trainings to enhance her work with clients experiencing trauma, grief, anxiety, attachment, and parenting.
