Rachel Ann Dine, LPC
Counseling in Chesapeake, Virginia
Experienced and passionate about helping you find balance in life
Hi! I’m Rachel Ann Dine, Licensed Professional Counselor and advocate of all things that empower women to feel healthy and balanced! I recognize how life can become very demanding and want to help you realize who you are and what you want out of life. After working in agency settings for just over 10 years, I am so happy to be here in Chesapeake providing counseling services to our community through my practice.
My goal is to help you realize your worth and 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 people, just like you, in their therapeutic journey.
My passion for helping others has really been life long, but my career in mental health started officially in 2005, when I began volunteering and working in the mental health field. Over the course of my career experiences, I’ve become specialized in counseling women, teens suffering from insecurities and depression, and couples seeking to strengthen their relationships.

A Focus on YOU and your needs
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 therapeutic 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. I sensitively meet everyone with where they are in their life journey.
