Hi, I’m Rachelle Bloksberg, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), #119841.
I live in Nevada County, in the beautiful Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California. I am currently providing only online therapy, also known as teletherapy, throughout California.
I went back to school to earn my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology after both my children were grown and out in the world. I have been a Neurofeedback Therapist offering coaching since 2009. Before that, I was a stay-at-home mom, though I'm not really sure you could call me that. I wasn’t home much, because I was constantly running around with my children. My husband and I homeschooled our children for years. The way we did it, much of homeschooling did not really happen at home.
I have lots of life experience that gives me a foundation for psychotherapy and coaching. When I was fifteen, I lived through the trauma of losing my mother to suicide. I have lost two more family members to suicide since then.
I suffered a debilitating brain injury later in my life and had to work to get my life back. I am now able to function and live my life to the fullest. After that, I was diagnosed with a serious, chronic illness. While I am still dealing with chronic illness, I live the life I want.
I have been married to the same wonderful man since 1984 and we have raised our two amazing children together. We have also started and run several business together. We moved to Nevada County about 27 years ago to live in the kind of environment we enjoy.
I enjoy working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. I am neurodiversity, LGBTQ+, and BIPOC affirmative. I have a neurodiverse, ADHD brain and understand the benefits and challenges of being neurodiverse. I love coming up with creative and unique solutions with my clients.
I developed many of my specialties through life experience. Other specialties I have learned by working with clients.
I am particularly experienced at addressing:
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
grief and loss
supporting family members with mental illness
recovery from abusive relationships
My life experience and my formal education have come together so that I can pursue my passion for helping people. I like to connect with my clients and create a safe environment for exploration. Each client is unique, so I believe in tailoring our time together to meet your specific needs.
I am particularly interested in, and am always continuing my training in Solution Focused Brief Therapy. I love learning and improving my skills.
Counseling is a healing process. Please don't wait any longer, if you want or need help. We can work together so you can start living the life you want and become the best version of yourself.
I live in Northern California in the rural Nevada City-Grass Valley area, but work virtually with clients throughout California. Most of my clients live in metropolitan areas like Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacramento and the San Francisco Bay Area. Click the "schedule now" button below to schedule a free 15 minute consultation.
