Rachel Blankenship

M.Ed., LPC

I graduated with my M.Ed. in Counseling from the University of Montevallo in 2018 and have worked in a variety of settings working primarily with children, adolescents, and teens. I particularly enjoy this age group and acknowledge that each generation has their own stressors and struggles. I’ve worked with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, and adjustment to life stressors or major events. I take a collaborative approach to counseling, but primarily lean towards Person-Centered therapy and CBT. I also utilize Play and Art therapy techniques when appropriate. Whether it’s needing a safe place to vent or support in navigating life’s challenges, my goal is to provide a non-judgmental and calming space for clients to process their thoughts and feelings, and discover their own answers.
