Rachel Berger specializes in LGBTQ issues.
I am a LPC-Intern supervised by Feleshia Porter, LPC-S. My goal as a counselor is to provide a supportive and accepting environment. Empathy is an important aspect of therapy. Each person is unique in their struggles. I have worked with clients with a variety of struggles, such as: self-harm, depression, anxiety, relationships, chronic pain, body focused repetitive behaviors, gender identity, self-esteem, and developmental and learning disabilities.

I earn a Masters in Clinical Psychology, at the Univerity of Texas of the Permian Basin (May, 2014) and a Bachelors in Psychology, at Texas Woman's University (May, 2011).
I am under the supervision of Feleshia Porter, LPC-S at Life Gets Better Together Counseling in Dallas, TX.
The majority of clients are individuals and I do both individual's and couple's work. Much of my counseling experience is with the LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning) and Disability (developmental, learning, intellectual, and physical) communities.
Firstly, it is important that you have goals in mind and have an openness to make individual changes before scheduling an appointment. Secondly, look for counselors who accept your insurance or are affordable. Third, take in to consideration any preferences you have the of race, gender, or language of the counselor. Fourth, read client reviews and the about me page of the counselor website.
Helpful information to have in mind is (1) what are your goals; (2) what is your insurance or financial situation; (3) what are your expectations for therapy, and (4) what distances are you able to travel to see a counselor.
