Hello! I am dually licensed as a Mental Health Therapist and a Professional Clinical Counselor. I openly seek opportunities to help navigate wellness and connect with others within our community and with families to promote overall systemic health. I enjoy working with teens and individuals who are motivated and ready for change. I greatly value connecting with people, and one of the most satisfying things in life for me is to help others reach their personal goals and get to know themselves better from a place of compassion and curiosity. I truly understand the struggles present in daily life. I love working with new parents and adults adjusting to the demands of life. Do you have ADD/ADHD? Me too! Let's get some skills and learn about how to minimize its impacts on your life. Growing up in a religious household with toxic and emotionally immature parents can create children who are numb and struggle with expressing themselves... we can work through that! Whatever your struggles currently- I truly believe everything is figureoutable. Therapy can be scary and can also be pretty cool! If interested in working with me, I am currently offering therapy in-person sessions Mondays and Tuesdays. You can learn more on my website www.MelindaRoseTherapy.com

Hi, I’m Rachel! Do you ever wonder why your kids struggle so much in school, have a hard time making/keeping friends, or have a difficult time following the same daily routines that are expected of them every day? Have you received multiple evaluations of them, but still feel lost in how to parent them? I get it. I’m not only an Autism and ADHD Specialist for both kids and adults ages 5-65yo, but I’m also a mom of neurodivergent kiddos. I work with children/teens/adults with varying presentations, who almost always have some level of anxiety, depression, trauma etc. I’m here to help support you and focus on what matters most. I also work with children and teens who do not have neurodivergent brains, but rather may have behavioral difficulties at home/school; issues with school refusal, significant degrees of anxiety and/or depression, overuse of social media and struggle in their parent/child relationships. I provide both individual and family therapy and believe that rapport with my clients and understanding their personal goals is what will make the most progress. I also specialize in life transitions, assisting teens in moving toward independence and the next steps in young adulthood. This includes career counseling, which I provide to adults of all ages.
