Rachel Loch, BA / MA Intern
I am currently a Clinical Mental Health Intern at Antioch University and am also working toward my certification in Art Therapy. I entered this field because I am passionate about the ways in which therapy can positively impact individuals, families, and communities at large. Further, I believe in the ways art therapy can engage our stories, trauma, identities, and relationships in more ways than the verbal alone.
In therapy, I like to begin from a place of compassion, consent, and curiosity. I am here to support you while leaning into the parts of yourself that long for healing, exploration, and a space to thrive. Whether you are getting to know yourself better or are seeking support while navigating life’s challenges, I would love to come alongside your journey to offer a safe space to process and seek wellbeing in.
My therapeutic approach incorporates creative, somatic, and strengths based methods geared toward client goals. What this looks like is that I take a dynamic approach that considers the various identities, needs, and backgrounds of my clients as well as the systems they exist in.
I enjoy working with people who may be members of the LGBTQIA+ community, neurodivergent folx, and people with systemic trauma. However, you don’t need to belong to these particular communities to work with me, at my core I want to see clients thrive in exactly who they are. I look forward to working with you!
