Rachel Ann Nestor – Clinical Social Worker/Therapist, MPA, MSW, LGSW
I love that I get to do such rewarding work by making a difference in people’s lives. I have a diverse background which has included working in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I use a biopsychosocial framework that recognizes the importance of many influences. People have different ideas about what they want, need and expect from treatment. I strive to create a collaborative partnership between client and clinician because I believe each brings important expertise. I make treatment client-centered and focus on client strengths rather than weaknesses. I faithfully demonstrate respect, genuineness, trust and empathic counseling.
I advocate that clients are the best experts about their own needs and that they have the right to self-determination to make informed decisions. I practice social work ethics and promise a safe and nonjudgmental environment. I apply a variety of interventions and techniques to facilitate new ways of thinking and changes in behavior.
