Professional statement

Rachel Ladov is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Austin, TX. Rachel works with women in their twenties and early thirties to help them find inner confidence, clarity and peace. Many of Rachel's clients come to her because they are feeling stuck, whether in their career, relationships, school or other life changes. She works collaboratively with them to explore their challenges and find a new, empowered perspective.

Rachel brings both a therapy and a life coaching background to her work. She offers her clients powerful coaching tools to be their best selves and embrace the lives they want. She also offers EMDR and other therapeutic techniques to process past trauma and find more peace in the present. She uses different strategies depending on the unique goals of each client. Ultimately, she aims to help each client connect with their inner knowing, let go of what is no longer serving them, and take steps to move confidently and authentically in the direction they want.

Rachel earned her Master’s degree in Social Work from University of Texas at Austin and has a robust background in supporting women through various life stages and changes. She currently offers video and phone sessions.

Message to clients

Are you feeling stuck? People think you have it all together, but on the inside you're not so sure. Maybe you feel worried or anxious about looming decisions. Maybe there are changes you want to make in your life, but you worry about disappointing others. Maybe you just want to feel more accomplished and less stressed. Together, we will explore how you can confidently move towards all that you want for yourself in a way that feels genuine and authentic to you.

My work with clients is a blend of therapy and coaching. I see each session as a co-creation with my clients, and our work together is based on your focus and goals. As a therapist, I offer a space to explore feelings and process experiences. As a coach, I am excited for you to get "unstuck" and move towards your goals and dreams. Wherever our work together goes, I will share helpful techniques to bring you grounding and clarity.

In each session, you will be heard and supported no matter what. There is no pressure to show up as anyone except yourself --- with all the emotions, life experiences and dreams that are part of being you.
