Healing Paths Counseling

Life is meant to be lived fully, but often there are circumstances that get in the way of our ability to engage at the level that we want to. Whether that is a trauma or loss or a major life stressor that has made life seem unbearable, you can receive help and there is hope of moving forward and living life to the fullness of your potential.​

Welcome to Healing Paths Counseling. It is not easy to take the steps toward inner healing but you showing up here is a courageous first step.

Rachel Slemons
MA Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

My counseling practice stems from the belief that each and every human has value and deserves to be seen and heard, regardless of age, background, or status. I work with individual adults and adolescents employing trauma-informed care on your path to recovery from life’s difficulties.


I practice a holistic, strengths-based, and person-centered approach, working with you toward your individual goals within therapy. My practice comes from a trauma-informed lens and I greatly value somatic and inner mind-body connection work which is incorporated through mindfulness and Lifespan Integration.


I work with a wide range of individuals, although most are coming to me for some kind of trauma therapy.


A few of my areas of focus include developmental trauma, religious trauma, LGBTQ+, relationship issues, family of origin, depression and anxiety, compassion fatigue, and working with highly sensitive people.

Education and Training:

  • Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Northwest University, 2019

  • Bachelors of Science in Psychology, Cum Laude from Pacific Lutheran University, 2013

  • Lifespan Integration Training (Level 1)

  • Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy


When I’m not in a therapy session, you can find me outside hiking, enjoying the beautiful PNW, and doing photography. I also enjoy spending time with my family and friends and curling up with my cat, a cozy blanket, and a good book or latest Great British Baking Show.
