Accepting Clients

Hello there! My name is Rachel Woodward and I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I look forward to meeting you!

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Newburyport, MA

About My Clients

I work with children who have a range of difficulties across all spectrums of social, emotional, and behavioral needs and diagnoses. In addition, I work with parents of special needs children, helping parents in how to parent their unique child, as well as individual therapeutic issues that may have arisen since becoming a parent. I also work with divorcing couples on how to co-parent their child. Finally, I work with adults who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, or life transitions.

My Background and Approach

I have been working with children and families for the past 10 years. My experience has been in therapeutic school settings as a therapeutic teacher and as an individual and group therapist for children, adults, siblings, parents, couples, and whole families. My treatment philosophy is a combination of strength-based approaches, psychodynamic theory and play-based strategies, while utilizing elements from cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. I operate using a trauma lens and knowledge from attachment based therapy. I believe strongly that parents are the experts of their children, and that my job is to work in collaboration with parents/guardians, families, and children in order to instill change. I also work individually with adults. The goals may include parenting techniques for their child with differing needs, their own mental health, such as difficulties with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationships, or life transitions as well as guidance for co-parenting strategies.
