Rachel Sherman, LPC, NCC

Forward Light Counseling Services

 Primary Focus


  • Anxiety and Depression

  • Relationship issues

  • Substance abuse / Chemical dependency

  • Trauma

  • Self-esteem / Self-worth issues

  • Communication issues


My goal is to help you reach your goals, whatever those may be, in a caring, supportive, person-centered environment.  If you are not sure what you are looking for, I can help you identify that as well.   Whether you need assistance adjusting to changes in your life or help making changes to live and feel more fulfilled, I can help you take the necessary steps to work through whatever difficulties you are facing.   I want to help you feel empowered and gain confidence in yourself, so that you will have the skills necessary to manage life's challenges.

I have experience working with adults who are dealing with anxiety, depression, codependency/relationship and familial issues, as well as with substance abuse and dependence.  I like to meet my clients where they are at, to help them meet their desired outcomes.

While no one can have the exact same experience, I will work hard to help you feel heard, understood, and supported.  We are all going through this journey called life together and face difficulties.
