About Me

Hi, I am Rachel Collins. I’m a Licensed clinical professional counselor (LCPC) and the founder of Stride Forward Counseling. I use an eclectic approach in counseling, drawing from Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), Strength-Based therapy. Doing this work feels like a gift and I am fortunate to have the opportunity to do what I love.

Taking the steps to start therapy can be both scary and exciting. As your personal guide, I want to help you find the place where you are feeling joy in your life. This place is different for everyone and I want to understand what outcomes you desire. My goal is to help you live a more meaningful, satisfactory and values-consistent life. It is my commitment to provide a genuine, empathetic and collaborative environment that fosters meaningful and lasting change.

I believe everyone needs a safe place to talk honestly and openly without feeling judged. My approach focuses on helping people understand the root of their issues and patterns in their lives. In this process you will learn how to move past your old belief systems while creating a healthy lifestyle.
