Rachel Dziabuda, MSW


Rachel Dziabuda (she/they) is a queer therapist who strives to provide a safe, comfortable space to explore the ways in which our unique experiences impact our functioning. Rachel utilizes a down-to-earth, informal approach to therapy, and focuses on building authentic relationships with their clients. Rachel believes therapy can be a space to laugh, cry, and swear (a little or a lot) as we work to reconnect with our true selves.


Rachel specializes in working with adults experiencing posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, life transitions, family of origin conflict, identity concerns, and survivors of gender-based violence (including, but not limited to: sexual assault, intimate partner violence, stalking, and human trafficking).  Rachel has worked with adults and adolescents in a variety of settings, including government agencies, domestic violence centers, and higher education. 


Rachel does not believe in a “one size fits all” mindset for therapy, instead opting for an eclectic approach. Rachel primarily pulls from Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) and Psychodynamic models, but incorporates other styles to meet the wants and needs of her clients. Additionally, Rachel is trained in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), an evidence-based practice for treating PTSD. Most importantly, Rachel believes all clients deserve to feel empowered within the therapeutic process, no matter their situation.
