Rachel Kaplan, LCSW
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
I am a psychotherapist seeing clients virtually in NY, NJ, and CT. Some of my specialties include chronic illness, anxiety, relationship and family dynamics, life transitions, and perfectionism.
My style is warm, compassionate, and nurturing, and I take an active role in therapy and will be direct with you in what I am observing. I hope to help you build more confidence and self esteem, and to support you in feeling prepared to tolerate uncertainty and navigate the stressful parts of your life.
Our first few sessions will be a time for us to get to know each other and collaborate to develop your goals for therapy. Though I may challenge you at times, it is really important to me that we are working together in a way that feels right for you, always at your pace.
Sometimes our sessions will feel like you are talking for most of the time, sharing what has been coming up for you that week or what is causing stress for you. I will be there to support you and provide a safe, non judgmental, and consistent place for you to come with whatever is on your mind. Other times, I may introduce new tools and skills to practice together, give you homework to try on your own between sessions, or share common themes that I am noticing are impacting different areas of your life. And sometimes, we will share a laugh! Because therapy doesn’t mean we will always be focusing on the tough stuff.
I use various approaches in therapy, since each client is very different and your needs and the work we do together will evolve and change as you do. My diverse perspective includes using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems, relational, mindfulness, and strength-based approaches.
