I'm Rachel Stanton, LICSW
And I provide therapy for women & gender nonconforming individuals who have experienced trauma in Boston
I help Women & gender nonconforming individuals who have experienced trauma who are challenged with feeling like there is just something wrong with you heal the parts that are hurting. Through allowing space for your body and mind to tell their story of loss and also of healing, I provide a space where you can finally relax and be yourself.
Together, we'll explore how to get to a place where you feel connected, light, and grounded to yourself, others, and your world.
If You Feel Stuck or Lost, I Hear You, And You Are Not Alone
There are so many potential triggers for the voice inside whispering "you're not good enough" as you try to go about your day, working, caring for yourself, and taking care of others. How can you get anything done and meaningfully engage with others when you're hearing that voice?
Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed right now with all that's going on. You may be feeling:
- Numbing your feelings so they aren't as overwhelming
- Disconnecting from people around you so you can manage your anxiety better
- Trapped inside yourself
- Fear you will feel this way for the rest of your life; that you will never be the same.
- Confused about why you are feeling this way
If feeling like there is just something wrong with you is affecting your ability to live your life, then it may be time to get therapy.
It's Possible To Start Feeling In Control
As your therapist, I will join you on your journey through healing and growth until you feel strong, confident, and free from the burden of self-doubt and loathing.
I am not your typical therapist who nods along and listens. I actively engage with you in the healing process. I gently challenge the patterns and habits that aren't serving you and strengthen the ones that are. I don't solely focus on your thoughts and emotions but also on the story your body may have to tell about who you are, what happened to you, and allowing for your body to guide us towards confidence, strength, resources, and healing for you.
