Rachael Goss, MA

Clinical Consultant

I specialize in working with LGBTQIA2+ individuals and couples with goals like: social and medical transition, identity exploration, relational communication, and growing the self-love you so deeply deserve. I am certified in Imago Relationship therapy, which helps deepen connection, explore issues around sex/intimacy, and provide space for healing.

I believe that change comes from the inside out – this takes patience and practice. I work with clients to help them to solve their own problems. You are the expert on your own life – I’m just the guide. In our time together, we will approach your life with depth, presence, and curiosity. We will explore a variety of questions: How does this experience land in your body? How have your past experiences influenced your life today? How might you challenge yourself around this issue? Together, we will cultivate awareness and mindfulness to help you make more empowered choices about your life.

I have a background in world religions, sociology, as well as my training in counseling. This unique perspective allows me to integrate systemic thinking with personal change. My main theoretical approach is as an Imago Therapist, but I use many tools to help you actualize the life you want to live.
