Does this sound familiar?

You feel lost and unseen
You feel alone, even in a room full of people 
You want to be your authentic self - to ask for what you need - but you worry that somehow, you don't deserve it
You yearn to be your whole self... but sometimes you don't even feel like you know who YOU really are.​

It doesn't have to be this way!

I'm Dr. Rachel Friendly, and I specialize in helping people create healthier relationships with themselves and others, embrace self-compassion, and claim their most fulfilling lives!


I can help you...

...find your voice when you've spent your whole life listening to the world tell you to shut up

...experiment with living your truth, owning your power, and building your sense of self

...examine your roles in relationships -- both with yourself and with other people

...create a more joyful and meaningful life

Inclusive, affirming, culturally-responsive therapy can help with all of this... and more!
