living the dream with blind psychotherapist and community advocate Rachel Longan

Living the Dream with Curveball show

Summary: Today I am joined by blind psychotherapist and community advocate Rachel Longan. Rachel believes that all people have the potential to live fully and find joy in relationships, community, family and creative endeavors. Rachel enjoys helping people realize their own potential, care for each other and advocate for themselves. She creates a safe and accepting space for you to find your own strength and feel heard and understood. Together we will identify a place to start and move at your pace. Anxiety, depression and fear can eclipse your authentic self. Finding that self and navigating challenges can be difficult, but also exhilarating! Rachel has founded support groups such as minds eye to help people deal with recent or lifelong vision loss. She has also created support groups for parents to help them deal with children with special needs.SpecialtiesFamilies of children with Special NeedsIndividuals coping with recent or lifelong visual Impairments/BlindnessIndividuals coping with Anxiety or DepressionPeople who identify as LGBTQI or gender non-conformingAdolescents and young adults navigating identity issues and transition to adulthoodCouples experiencing relationship difficultiesMy CredentialsMasters of Science in Marriage Family Therapy, Emphasis in School Counseling: San Francisco State University, Graduated: 2000License No. and State: MFT86243 CaliforniaYou can check out her services on the web at
