    About Rachelle Burrell

    I am a down-to-earth human being who embraces both triumphs and tribulations, learning from each experience along the way. Through successes and challenges, I navigate life with intentionality, managing stress by surrounding myself with loving family, friends, and exceptional colleagues. Nature is my sanctuary, and I find solace in diverse genres of music with its various lyrics, rhythms and notes for both calm and energy. In our journey together, I encourage you to discover your own self-care strategies as we tackle life’s complexities.

    My main goal is simple; to extend grace and mercy to everyone I encounter, acknowledging the shared human experience of emotions—happiness, sadness, anger, fear, guilt, and doubt. While I don’t claim to have all of the answers I am dedicated to helping you to find answers. I am dedicated to continuous learning through education and insights gained from friends and colleagues in the mental health field. Most importantly I have had the opportunity to learn from courageous and resilient children, teens and adults who have suffered then thrived through difficulties in their lives. My journey has been enriched by working with resilient individuals across various life stages in psychiatric and general health care settings, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, and hospice. With nearly 30 years of experience in mental health, I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Human Development and Human Studies and a Master of Social Work from Howard University, specializing in mental health. My services are available to individuals aged 16 and beyond.

    Life’s journey, with its peaks and valleys, can be challenging for even the most resilient individuals. As a licensed clinical social worker, I provide compassionate, trauma-informed, and culturally sensitive psychotherapy. My approach is client-centered, rooted in the belief in the healing power of hope and individuals’ capacity to heal themselves.
    In our therapeutic journey, my primary commitment is to listen—to truly understand your needs, strengths, and goals. You have the space to share your story and discuss what matters most to you. Together, we will collaboratively develop a tailored treatment approach.

    Our first session involves a comprehensive, holistic assessment to unveil your strengths and pinpoint areas for exploration in therapy. We will set achievable goals and, in subsequent sessions, delve into current concerns, review insights or homework, and explore pathways to growth and healing.

    Principles to Guide the Therapeutic Process


    I understand that sharing personal information with anyone can be scary or unsettling. Knowing that your information will stay between therapist and client helps to build that trust needed so that you can be open and honest in your sessions.

    I use a HIIPPA compliant platform for all of my Telehealth visits.

    Mandatory reporting laws require that I report any abuse to appropriate authorities. I will report any information that is a safety concern for you or others. I am mandated to report anything that may be considered potential harm to you or others.


    Therapy can help you to think about your problem in new and different ways. I will encourage you to think outside of the box. You may think that you are not creative, but I believe that everyone is capable of finding new solutions and creating new experiences.

    "Non-judgement, quiets the internal dialogue, and this opens once again the doorway to creativity." Deepak Chopra


    I care about the experiences of others. I know that as a human being I cannot "fix" all of your problems but I can seek to understand, mentor and companion you on your life's journey. I believe that learning self-compassion is a first step in the therapy process.

    "If you compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete" Jack Kornfield.


    Therapy helps you to gain greater acceptance of yourself.

    "My happiness grows in direct proportion to my acceptance, and in inverse proportion to my expectation" Michael J. Fox
