About me

I am licensed in Illinois with 4 years of professional work experience in a variety of settings, including crisis intervention, community based programs, private practice, hospital and some residential programs as well. My clinical focus and experience has included mood disorders, anxiety/panic, family conflict, trauma, major life transitions and LGBTQ+ concerns. I have plenty of experience working with children, teens and families, including parenting coaching.

I know firsthand how overwhelming it can be to reach out for support, even if you have experienced a therapeutic setting in the past. I congratulate you on taking this step, and I am looking forward to being in your corner along the way.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Rachel Weeks. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

I’ve only had 3 sessions with Rachel and it feels like I’ve been working with her forever. She listens and offers new perspectives that I never would have thought of before. When I have a bad day, I know she is just a message away. Rachel is an excellent therapist that genuinely cares about her clients.
