Rachel Thompson, LMSW
I am a Mother, therapist, energy healer with a Master of Social Work degree concentrated in Mental Health and Community Organizing. My clinical approach conceptualizes mental health treatment as a form of activism within a society designed to keep folks traumatized, oppressed and disconnected. I believe each of us possess inherent strengths and gifts and aim to explore those deeply with you in a space where you feel safe and accepted for exactly who you are.
I have experience inside an inpatient Psychiatric hospital setting, multiple Wayne County Community Mental Health settings, as a Re-entry case manager assisting folks transitioning from prison back into their communities, as a medical advocate inside Wayne County Jails, and as the Lead Clinician within a Detroit homeless shelter. I believe strongly in collective healing, intersectionality, ancestral healing, creative and community work as keys to achieving balance and wellness. I am certified in Usui Reiki I and II. Depending on your personal needs and goals: we will use a combination of solution-focused, CBT, trauma-informed, harm reduction, holistic and mindfulness approaches. I believe that taking the time, space and care towards healing ourselves within our communities is revolutionary.
