Meet Rayne

Rayne Portrait 8.HEIC

My Story

I am an introverted, creative, deep thinking, open minded, sensitive human. I like to spend my time relaxed in solitude or with my family. I'm most at ease outdoors, I crave creating and art making, I'm always learning, and I connect within through yoga or meditation. 

I am married to my high school sweetheart, have a full-of-life son, and an ornery cat. I come from a large family, so there are always reasons to gather. 

I've been a social worker since 2010, working in a variety of settings. I didn't quite realize "therapist" was my path until half-way through grad school. I suppose this was the perfect path given my sensitive nature which helps me be in tune with others, have deep compassion, a strong stance for social justice and others' wellbeing, and a desire to "go deep."

I've had the lucky benefit of learning more about myself through this work and through my clients. I did not know there was a trait called the Highly Sensitive Person and I didn't realize that was me until into my adulthood. I certainly didn't realize I would also later be diagnosed as Autistic. What I thought were problems or flaws, turned out to be my nature and the way my brain was wired since day one. I've had to learn (and still am) how to accept these differences and adjust my life to work with them, not against them. I want to help you do the same.

I truly love connecting with people on a deep level, helping them to see they are worthy and that there is nothing "wrong" with them.

My Approach

My approach is casual and gentle, using directness to guide and point out helpful insights. I primarily use IFS therapy to help you build a relationship between your Self and all the parts (aspects of yourself) within. Mindfulness, imagery, and focusing on your emotional experience are tools I use to help us learn about your inner world. My goal is to help you feel more at peace, become more true to yourself, and heal the pain and wounds you are holding. I do not rush this process and am adamant about helping you stay regulated and in charge through the process. I am considered a "talk therapist," but we will be deepening your connection to your body, mind, and soul with hands-on exercises.     


I am neurodivergent and LGBTQIA+ affirming. This is a warm, welcoming, non-judging, and accepting place.

"The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change."
