Rachel Heller, LCSW-R, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Oyster Bay
How do you choose a therapist? Start with a connection! In my practice making a real connection with empathy, objectivity and compassion are vital components of the therapeutic relationship. If you are feeling hopeless, overwhelmed, stressed and depressed there is help. We work together towards viable solutions to develop and strengthen your coping skills and to reach short and long-term goals in a safe non-judgmental environment. I believe that with guidance and support you can obtain balance and a greater sense of peace in daily life.
For many years I have been on a path of personal growth, my journey resulted in a wide range of counseling experiences from the very young to the very old. Your symptoms may be acute or moderate. My passion is to help Children on the Autism Spectrum and their family.
If this is a first time exploration my hope for you is that it is a positive experience that brings forth a multitude of new opportunities. For those of you who have had previous treatment may you have new insightful experiences that help increase self acceptance and greater happiness.
