Don’t let anxiety run your life. 

 Anxiety is exhausting. You spend so much time dreaming up worst case scenarios that it’s hard to focus on the things that used to excite and inspire you.

You wonder if you’ve lost your edge at school or work and it’s hard to figure out what you really want in your relationships, much less to ask for it. Don’t you wish you could free yourself from worry and self-doubt and step into your true worth?

Rachel Haimovich

Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Certified Music Therapist

You’ve come to the right place.

Hi, I’m Rachel. I help hardworking folks just like you: people who have it within them to break free from the shackles of anxiety so they can create a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling, where worry and hesitation no longer hold them back. They might not know where to begin, but with the right support and guidance, they can find the way.

I help my clients access peace and clarity in their lives by equipping them with the tools they need to better understand and navigate big emotions and move forward as a less anxious, more self-assured version of themselves.

Many of today’s solutions for anxiety and stress are cookie-cutter and one-size-fits-all, leading so many to feel like they just can’t get it right or aren’t trying hard enough. We’re led to believe that reading self-help books and following inspirational IG memes will help us work through it and give us the answers and tools we keep searching for – all to have that nagging feeling in your gut return.

I know that your story is unique.

 

When I first meet with you, we start by identifying the events from your past and present that are contributing to feelings of anxiety and overwhelm. 

Then, we work toward uncovering and healing the root of what’s causing the most distress while simultaneously building practical skills and resources that you can start implementing in your life right away. 

Through the process of getting to know all the parts of you, even the ones you’ve hidden away or run from, you will find that deep healing is possible, and with that, freedom, joy, connection, and a clearer vision of what it means to step into your true potential.

In our work together, you’ll learn to let go of harsh self-criticism, access self-compassion and trust in your own capacity to heal and skillfully navigate the uncertainties and challenges of life. .

My training in music therapy, yoga, EMDR and other trauma-informed and evidence-based modalities means that I have the expertise you need and deserve when working on healing anxiety and self-doubt. Music, movement, metaphor and imagery as well as other creative methods can make the process of getting to know yourself more accessible and playful.

You begin to recognize that perhaps those scary places inside of you aren’t so scary after all and there are also places of great strength, compassion and understanding. Through this process, you learn new ways to relate to your pain, anxiety, and all the other struggles that you’ve been trying so hard to overcome.

But at the end of the day, you want to know you’re working with someone who “gets” you. I get it because I’ve walked this path myself and I’ve journeyed beside many clients who have as well. I know how hard it can be to cut through the noise of anxiety and find relief. So, when we work together, you won’t just get a trained therapist. You’ll get someone who truly understands what you’re going through.

Credentials & Experience

My clinical experience includes working in community mental health, outpatient and school settings with children, teens and adults experiencing a range of challenges and symptoms such as anxiety, depression, thought disorders, codependency, low self worth, eating disorders, complex trauma and addictions.

I have extensive experience creating and implementing music therapy programs and groups in community mental health, and intensive outpatient/partial hospital environments working with folks with chronic and persistent psychiatric and or/intellectual disabilities. I am available for consultation and workshops on request. 

I take into account the ways in which systemic oppression impacts each individual and believe it is so important to untangle the shame that can hold us back from more fully committing to and showing up for a world of greater equity and social justice.
