Rachael Collins is a Somatic Psychotherapist committed to supporting individuals at finding their resilience and empowerment. She sees individual adults, 21yrs and over in her private practice and welcomes folks into her office for a range of concerns. Rachael works with her clients to develop a deep understanding of themselves and action strategies to begin healing and moving forward. Rachael has extensive training in treating trauma, ranging from minorly overwhelming experiences, to chronic experiences in childhood that were abusive or neglectful. Rachael is passionate about supporting folks in learning that there is hope for change and a clear path towards feeling better, even if you've lived a life where distressing symptoms have been in place for a long time.

Rachael utilizes mindfulness, body based practices, and EMDR to support folks in processing and integrating their past experiences. This includes treating trauma, anxiety, panic, grief, substance abuse, and general conflict in relationships. Rachael takes a holistic and collaborative approach with every one of her clients to develop the treatment route that will best serve each individual on their journey.

In addition to earning her Masters Degree in Somatic Counseling Psychology from Naropa University, Rachael lives an embodied mindful life, practicing herself what she offers in her counseling sessions.
