Hi! I’m Rachel Ann Dine, Licensed Professional Counselor and advocate of all things that empower women to feel healthy and balanced because I recognize how life can become very demanding and want to help you realize who you are and what you want out of life! Let me empower you to not only FEEL mentally and physically healthy but LIVE a life that is authentic to you. Although I specialize in women’s mental health, I’ve been helping both women and men take charge of their lives for over a decade now and never tire of supporting them in their journey.
Since 2005, when I got started volunteering and working in the mental health field, I’ve become specialized in helping women who have lost sight of who they are, teens who are defiant, emotional, and depressed, and couples seeking to strengthen their relationships and rebuild trust and intimacy.
Originally from Pensacola, FL, I received my undergraduate Psychology/English degree from the University of West Florida and went immediately into their graduate program in Counseling Psychology. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Florida and a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia.
I’ve had professional experience in agency settings to include: the residential inpatient psychiatric hospital setting, acute stabilization unit, military and family life counseling, substance abuse treatment center, outpatient clinic, crisis hotline, emergency department behavioral health support, and am a subject matter expert on Oppositional Defiant Disorder with experience writing course curriculum for hospital staff.
Attending therapy and coaching sessions can be a vulnerable experience and the potential feelings of vulnerability are recognized from the moment that you meet me-your emotional safety is one of my top priorities.
If you don’t feel safe to share, how can we begin to start the process of healing from past hurts and make new, positive changes? I, myself, am a private person so I certainly understand that sharing and asking for help can be hard. I’ve structured my entire approach to be sensitive and supportive of your needs and the pace you want to open up. No pushy personality here-your experience should be unique to YOU and I meet everyone with where they are at in their life journey.
Please call me with any questions you may have! 757-739-6771 OR if you have already felt a connection and feel like we would be a great fit, online self-scheduling is available through clicking here.
Looking forward to meeting you and empowering you to renew your spirit and reconnect with who you are!
