Licensed Professional Counselor - LPC
*************My practice provides online video therapy only**************
Does it feel like you might be a single speed bump away from some sort of emotional disaster? Have you already hit that speed bump? At one time or other, most of us have experienced this nasty little bugger! I know I have!
My name is Rachel Firneno, LPC and I am a life-long speed bump hitting expert! Along the way I have gained experience in picking myself up from these speed bumps and I have also had formal training to help assist you in your bumpy journey. I offer a compassionate, objective environment for you to resolve your personal challenges. My belief is that you are the expert in your life, I am simply here to consult and help you develop new strategies or dust off old strategies and help you meet your goals and live your best life!
My philosophy is that everyone can benefit from counseling; whether your problems are complex and long-standing, time-limited, or seemingly simplistic. You will find that I provide a non-judgmental, safe, and compassionate environment for you to open up and work on your needs. I provide online only therapy using a HIPAA secured video format as I believe this will reduce obstacles that we often face when keeping appointments.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Colorado and Texas, a Board Certified Counselor (NCC), and a Board Certified Telemental Health provider BC-TMH. I graduated with my Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2011 from Texas A&M University Central Texas, and my Master of Science in Counseling Psychology from Texas A&M University in 2014.
I completed my internship in Texas working in community mental health with indigent clients who have severe mental illnesses, substance use issues, trauma, and co-occuring disorders in both the community and the clinic settings. I have extensive experience working to stabilize clients with multiple in-patient hospitalizations and/or incarcerations. During this time I provided Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Cognitive Processing Therapy to clients as well as utilizing other evidenced-based therapies to help the clients meet their recovery goals.
Please feel free to contact me for a free 15 minute phone consultation. I will be happy to discuss your needs and provide further information on a case-by-case basis.
