Dr. Rachel Moore, Ph.D., LMFT
I believe that healthy relationships are key to living a happier and more fulfilling life. However, there’s no denying that relationships are hard, and sometimes even a little bit messy at times, especially when life throws unexpected obstacles our way. Relationships are complex, whether it be the relationship you have with yourself, or the ones with your parents, siblings, partner, family members, friends, or co-workers. Maybe you are having a hard time being kind to yourself, or you’re feeling overwhelmed, discouraged, or stuck. Perhaps you are feeling disconnected, frustrated, or unappreciated in your relationships. Or you might be on a journey of personal growth or seeking to strengthen your relationships, but you are not sure where to start. I view therapy as a space for clients to seek growth, explore helpful solutions, and cultivate meaningful relationships. I help individuals, couples and families connect with themselves, with others, and with the things that bring purpose to their lives to create lasting change. As a therapist, I believe you are the expert on your life, and I am simply the expert on creating change; we can work together to reach your goals.
My therapy style is collaborative and person-centered, meaning that I strive to meet you wherever you are in your mental health journey. I practice from an integrative perspective and draw from a combination of modalities to best meet your needs and goals. I promote growth by providing a safe, culturally inclusive, and LGBTQ-affirming space for you to feel seen, heard, validated, and empowered to create the change you are seeking.
