Rachel Haynes is compassionate, kind, and understanding. She will help you through various struggles that are in need of addressing.
Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy celebrates the uniqueness of each of us as human beings. It acknowledges that we are aware of ourselves and our world. It also acknowledges that we can change our existence by exploring in depth how we have formed our view of ourselves and the world. Then, we have the choice to keep what supports our fuller living and let go of what inhibits our fuller living. Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy also involves the exploration of certain universal themes of existence. These include ideas that we all grapple with, such as:
engaging in life while knowing we all die
finding meaning when confronting emptiness
needing to be in relationship and needing to be alone
wanting freedom while having responsibility
Principles of Existential-Humanistic Psychotherapy:
Supports the exploration of what it means to exist, and what it means to be human.
Supports the sovereignty of each individual’s unique subjective experience.
Supports the intuitive and irrational so we can move into balance with the rational and methodical.
Supports the attitude of being open to include the full spectrum of feelings and thoughts of which human beings are capable.
Supports Maslow’s higher values of being human such as Truth, Beauty and Justice.
Supports people to be more fully alive and vital.
Supports one’s capacity to actualize in their lives fully.
Supports the belief that human beings, if supported to be their authentic selves, will ultimately act in the best interests of themselves,
of each other, of their community, and of the planet as a whole.

Rachel provides psychotherapy for the treatment of a variety of issues including depression, issues with addiction, and challenging life transitions. My areas of specialization include helping individuals, couples, and families cope with substance abuse, anxiety grief and loss, and other health concerns that are having a negative impact in their lives. I have extensive experience working with adolescents as well as substance abuse, and co-occurring disorders.
Rachel holds a masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Holy Names University, and she is a firm believer in a tradition that tends to mind, body, and spirit as equally essential components of our lives.  It is an in-depth psychological approach, where we work together to find the root sources of suffering, rather than temporarily treating the symptoms. Rachel strives to encourage her clients to be their authentic selves.
One of the goals will be to first determine and articulate where in your life you are struggling--interpersonal, work, school, family, marriage--and then to develop steps to relieve distress, create better boundaries, and learn healthier alternatives to your current choices.
