Rachael E Stracka, LCSW, BCD, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Escondido
If you are ready to change your painful emotional patterns and heal on a deeper level, I can help you through integrative psychotherapy. With 16 years of experience, I am able to quickly pinpoint the sources of your anxiety, depression, relational and other pain and show you how to feel immediate relief followed by deep, long-lasting change. This type of therapy allows you to achieve a greater level of self-acceptance and personal growth as painful patterns are transformed. I use both traditional and innovative therapies to help you heal mind, body, and soul.
As part of integrative psychotherapy, you will receive mindfulness and self-compassion training, which allows you to gain the most benefits from therapy. Mindfulness also allows you to maintain long-lasting changes post-therapy. You may not know what to expect from therapy, but I will be there every step of the way.
With a keen ability to understand and connect with people combined with the knowledge and experience of helping individuals heal and change painful emotional patterns, I am able to offer you unique and well-informed integrative therapy to help you heal your mind, body, and soul.
