Rachel Ans, LADC, LPCC, MPS


Rachel Ans believes that when given a safe and supportive place to explore our experiences and ourselves, we can gain awareness of our potential. As a therapist, Rachel strives to encourage autonomy, advocacy, and personal growth within the individuals she has the opportunity to work with. Rachel obtained her LADC in 2012 and has experience working in various substance use treatment settings. She is passionate about working with individuals to address concerns with substance use, traumatic experiences, and coming out and exploring gender and religious trauma. She is polyam/kink aware and enjoys working within the LGBTQIA+ communities. Rachel believes antiracism is a lifelong actionable journey committed to engaging in this work. She is a European-American, cisgender, bisexual, polyam, non-disabled individual, using she/her pronouns.
