“Even with a background in counseling, I have never heard someone speak so eloquently about the effects of trauma, and more importantly from an identity-conscious, inclusive lens. For a program like ours that serves primarily first-generation, low-income youth of color, I am so grateful for the insights and support Rachel offers that not only provides our organization interventions for healing, but honors the dignity of our students.”
— Tiffany E., Retreat Participant
