Rachel Reist, LCSW

"At the core of my therapeutic approach is a strong belief in the inherent ability each child and             individual has for healing and growth,and the power of the therapeutic relationship to nurture that inherent potential.  I view myself as a companion and a guide as we walk the healing journey together -a journey I feel privileged to be a part of."
