Hello, I’m Rachel Fabbi. I’m a Marriage and Family Therapist and I specialize in treating moms and couples in the perinatal period – the time frame during pregnancy and after the birth of a baby. I’m a birth doula, and am certified in Perinatal Mental Health, so this is an area I have a lot of passion about. I’m also specialized in treating substance use and addiction.
I primarily see individuals and see couples as well. I take a pretty casual and warm approach and try to show up for you in the way you need me to in sessions. So that means, if you need a compassionate ear, I’m here for you, or if you like a little more umph in your sessions, I can help to call you out a bit so you can see some of the places you may be contributing to your struggles. I can teach you skills for coping with anxiety, depression, struggles sleeping or dealing with others, if you’d like. I am here for you if you feel pulled to share and process past trauma, which can be an important part of healing, but I will not push you to share more than you’re ready to, ever. You’re in the driver’s seat, should this be an area you’d like to explore, and I will respect your limits no matter what. I see myself as someone who is alongside you in the work you do in therapy and hope to support you in finding your own footing, hope, tools and peace in your relationships.
If you’re a bit of a therapy geek, like me, and are interested in theories, I would say I mostly utilize techniques that align with Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Gottman’s Couple Therapy techniques, Emotion Focused Therapy and Shame Resilience.
I appreciate you stopping by to read a little about me and my work in therapy! If you’d like to learn more about me and my practice, please visit my website, rachelfabbi.com.
