Rachel feels deeply called and connected to the mission of Gather, and believes that every person has the ability to recover from their eating disorders. Rachel’s entry into the mental health field comes from personal experience of developing an eating disorder, and after receiving the support and care she needed, she felt drawn to pay it forward. Rachel has experience working in all levels of eating disorder care including residential, intensive day programming, intensive outpatient programming, and outpatient.
Rachel’s goal is to give every client a safe space to be themselves free from judgment, and to meet clients exactly where they are at. Rachel tries to see every eating disorder as unique and learn to understand every client’s individual story, in order to give them the care and support they need. Rachel received her master’s degree from the University of St. Thomas and is also currently working as the Program Coordinator of the Intensive Outpatient Program at The Emily Program.
