Rachel Kimbrel, LCSW

I look forward to helping you on your journey to become the person you want to be. I primarily work with adults who feel anxiety, depression, or trauma/PTSD symptoms are getting the best of them. Theses struggles appear differently in everyone, but often my clients seek help for perfectionistic tendencies, feeling inadequate, intrusive thoughts, uncontrollable worries, feeling hopeless, and eating disordered behaviors.

I help to regain a sense of control of emotions and resolve the past. My approach is non-judgmental, empathetic, and I prioritize making sure the client feels safe and comfortable. I utilize Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) as well as Internal Family Systems (IFS) to lead the client in activating the brain’s natural healing processes and attaining harmony and alignment within the mind.

My favorite part of my job is watching the actualization of relief and inner peace take place. When my clients are able to say “I feel healed!” I know this job is what I am meant to do. This is why I created Brighter Minds Therapy - to help more people heal.

The therapeutic process is something that can benefit everyone. It takes lots of vulnerability, willingness to dig into the deep, dark parts of ourselves, and sitting with the hard emotions, but it is so, very rewarding. Throughout my years of experience I have had the pleasure of helping hundreds of people on their journey to healing and I know each of us are capable of finding that inner peace.
