Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Supervisor Dr Cheri McDonald LMFT #27359
Rachael S. Dadbin believes the body, mind, and emotions are interconnected, including how one’s choices and life experiences beginning from the family of origin impact one’s internal framework and quality of relationship with self and others. Rachael has a passion for guiding and empowering others in order to build resiliency by increasing levels of self-awareness and life skills so one can create goals and achieve their dreams.
In the therapy room, Rachael utilizes an eclectic approach and interventions from CBT, DBT, Humanistic and Systems theories, Person-Centered, Adlerian, and a variety of Post Modern interventions to meet the needs of the client.
She received her Master of Arts Degree in Psychology with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy and with two Pupil Personnel Services Credentials in School Counseling and Child Welfare and Attendance from Phillips Graduate University in 2017. Additionally, Rachael went through a specialized program at Los Angeles Pierce Community College for substance abuse/addiction counseling and engaged in fieldwork training while she was completing her undergraduate requirements. Shortly after, she transferred to Antioch University in Los Angeles to complete her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology.
In all of her experience, Rachael has worked with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples in both school and clinical settings who come from diverse cultural, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
