Rachel Cole, LCSW, SEP

Dwell in the possibility of what your life can be...It is my belief that you can create anything you want for yourself or your life. This may seem overwhelming, scary & exciting all at the same time, but it is possible! I provide a safe space where we can explore the patterns in your life & the situations that stop you. We all get stuck sometimes, usually by a combination of ourselves & our circumstances. In order to see more clearly we need help to step back & put our life into perspective.
Therapy is a process & I see YOU as the expert of your life. I will pull out your individual strengths to provide the most effective treatment. I work with techniques that incorporate Mindfulness psychotherapy, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Somatic Experiencing. To learn more about what this means, please visit my website!
I have extensive experience working with adults & adolescents. I worked as a therapist and clinical supervisor for the County of Los Angeles, Department of Mental Health for over 9 years. I have come across an enormous diversity of people living with everything from severe chronic mental illness to those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one.
My style is to support you getting into action in your life. I help you work toward goals, clarify options where you feel stuck and teach you how to identify the wealth of information the body reveals. I enjoy creating growth opportunties by helping you learn more about who you are, what stops you, & how to break unhelpful patterns using a mind-body approach. I do also incorporate SE Touch when it can further treatment.
Some side effects of this work can be: a more powerful & passionate life, less reactivity in the world, greater sense of ease & peacefulness, larger capacity for acceptance & compassion.
