About Rachel

I offer a therapeutic experience that merges sound and energy healing with talk-therapy. (Not many practitioners are qualified to do both.)


We’ll use tapping, chakra-clearing, visualization, and precisely calibrated sound vibrations to bypass speech and reach your energy-body directly. 


The result?

  • relief from distress

  • new sense of self-determination

  • restored calm

  • a feeling of connection to your community and the world


Why work with me? 


I’m Rachel Michaelsen LCSW: a seasoned psychotherapist who’s also certified by the Association For Comprehensive Energy Psychology. I’m trained in Sound Healing, Freedom Technique (EFT), Trauma Tapping Technique (TTT), Advanced Integrative Therapy (AIT), Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT), Psych-K, other energy psychology methods, and energy medicine techniques which utilize both the body's energy meridians and chakras. I bring all those techniques into harmony to help my clients heal and reach their life goals. 


Over the past 30 years, I’ve worked with hundreds of people of all ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and gender identities: helping them ease suffering and live more authentic lives.
