Rachel Gentry, MS, LPC, LCADC, NCC
MY PHILOSOPHY: As a therapist, it is my belief that the combination of a trusting client-to-therapist relationship paired with an empathetic and interactive approach can create a platform for personal growth. My role in this therapeutic process is to take a non-judgmental stance to motivate change through helping you identify, navigate, and cope effectively with unproductive and unhealthy thoughts and behaviors. I can help implement solution-focused strategies that can bring awareness to any barriers that may prevent you from moving forward, while also supporting goal achievement that can guide you towards self-improvement and your true potential.
EXPERIENCE: I entered the mental health field in 2012 and gained most of my clinical experience through the treatment of substance abuse and co-occurring disorders in Detox, Partial Hospitalization, and Intensive Outpatient settings. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Health Studies in 2012 and a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling in 2015 from Monmouth University in West Long Branch, NJ. I am currently a Licensed Associate Counselor in New Jersey as well as a Nationally Certified Counselor.
