    Meet Rachel (She/Her)

    Psychotherapist LCPC & Founder – Maryland

    Greetings! I’m Rachel Collins, a seasoned Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) and the founder of Stride Forward Counseling. At the intersection of expertise and compassion, I employ a dynamic blend of therapeutic methods, seamlessly weaving Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral (CBT), Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), and Strength-Based therapy into the fabric of my practice.

    Embarking on the journey of therapy can be a mix of trepidation and anticipation. As your dedicated guide, I am committed to steering you towards a place where joy permeates your life. Recognizing that this destination is unique for each individual, I’m eager to delve into your aspirations and desired outcomes. My mission is to empower you to lead a more meaningful, satisfying, and values-aligned life.

    Beyond the client journey, I am fervently passionate about cultivating an exceptional work environment for therapists. I believe in the transformative power of a genuine, empathetic, and collaborative therapeutic space, and I extend this philosophy to my team. I prioritize a work culture that values work-life balance, ensuring our therapists don’t succumb to long hours but rather recharge and renew, fostering their well-being.

    As an LGBTQIA+ affirming provider, I embrace diversity and am dedicated to fostering a space where everyone feels seen, heard, and supported
