Congratulations on taking the courageous step of seeking help. Together, we can work towards improving your perspective, thought patterns, and overall approach to life.

My name is Rachel Fuller and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (#4042) with five years of experience practicing in Southern California. Originally from Philadelphia/New Jersey, I graduated with my Masters from the University of Pennsylvania. My counseling style is a blend of East Coast straightforwardness and honesty, along with SoCal creativity and compassion.

Life has brought changes for all of us in recent years, both big and small. As with any disruption, you may be experiencing a range of emotions such as anxiety, loss, uncertainty, or depression. During these times, it's crucial that we maintain human connections and communicate our thoughts, desires, needs, and feelings. I'm here to provide support to clients of any age who are struggling, seeking self-discovery, or simply need a listening ear. I don't believe in a "cookie-cutter" approach to therapy, and I value feedback and flexibility to find the best fit for my clients.

I'm excited to meet you and look forward to working together towards positive changes.

About Me

My Approach

Play Therapy

Play is how children “talk” and communicate their thoughts and feelings. It can help children understand their emotions, gain insight, resolve conflicts, learn self-control, identity, problem solving, and to modify behaviors.

Talk Therapy

Therapy allows the client to express themselves and find their own answers to problems without judgement, hurting feelings or getting into trouble. The therapist provides a safe space where all emotions are accepted. 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

CBT examines the connection between thoughts, feelings and behaviors. It shows clients how to replace negative thoughts with more realistic, positive ones and realize they have control over their behaviors.


Client-centered (or child-centered) therapy asks the client to take an active role in his/her treatment. This approach helps the client develop self-esteem and identity, enabling them to find their own way to move forward.

Family Therapy

Family therapy focuses on the family having fun together while discovering new ways to communicate and solve problems. Family therapy avoids blaming individual family members and instead helps the family interact in new and healthier ways . 


There is no "right" or "wrong" way to do therapy!  Methods like art, music, movement and drawing are all effective if they help the client feel comfortable and safe.
