Rachel Conrad, LMSW
Born to a family of doctors, Rachel relates first hand to the internal and external pressures to identify a life purpose at an early age. After pursuing a pre-med degree, Rachel’s experience volunteering with domestic violence victims at the NY Presbyterian DOVE program revealed that her passion in health care involved more mind than just body. Rachel graduated magna cum laude from Columbia University with a masters in clinical social work, and is presently advancing her training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at New York University.
Rachel relies on insight gained through personal experiences to help others identify maladaptive thought processes and to create and maintain healthy coping mechanisms. She has conducted several anger management, parenting, and relapse prevention groups in her role as an addiction counselor.
Rachel’s style is warm, humorous, holistic, and direct. She utilizes a combination of CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, mind-body, and strengths-based approaches to empower her clients towards their goals and full potentials.
Acknowledging the power of past experiences while emphasizing on the here and now, Rachel works with her clients to recognize unproductive thought patterns and dysfunctional, habitual responses. She supports clients as they explore the connection between their thoughts, beliefs, and actions and grow towards making positive, long-lasting changes.
