Rachel is passionate about helping people walk through life's difficulties while relying on the Lord to break through any and all barriers. She graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a Bachelor of Education in Elementary Education in 2014 and received a Master of Arts in Christian Education and Biblical Counseling from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2020.
Over the last few years of studying counseling, Rachel has learned the importance of taking an active role in one's own healing process and has personally experienced God's transformative work in her life in a number of ways. Her favorite parts of the counseling process are getting to know a person's unique personality and helping them see where their problems and scripture meet. She considers it a privilege to be trusted with the joys and sorrows of another person's life.
Rachel lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband Dillon. When she is not counseling, she can be found trying a new dinner recipe, catching the latest episode of one of her favorite TV shows, going for an evening walk with Dillon, or meeting a friend for coffee.
