More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 4

I am a licensed clinical social worker living and practicing in New York City for over 4 years. I have helped clients with a broad range of concerns including anxiety, stress, relationship issues, depression, grief, loss and living with chronic illness. I completed a masters degree in Social Work at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. After my studies, I started my career working as a hospital social worker in various areas of care including the emergency department, intensive care unit, oncology and transplant services. I have had the opportunity to live and work in various regions of the United States, including the Mountain West, West Coast and East Coast. This experience has given me the ability to understand a vast array of demographics. I come from a multicultural family and understand the dynamics of growing up in ethic diversity. I enjoy the combination of urban city living and outdoor recreation and love to surf.

My approach to therapy is rooted in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and focuses on using techniques from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Mindfulness. As your therapist, it is my goal to form a trusting relationship and provide you with a safe environment to explore emotions, identify things that you'd like to improve in your life and work together to achieve your goals.

I look forward to working with you.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

I started working with Rachael about a week or two ago and I can already tell it was a good decision for me. She listens patiently and offers some solutions/tools for me to try.

R.O.·Apr 27, 2020


Rachael is warm, a thoughtful listener and incredibly supportive. Even through the few sessions, she’s helped me spotlight a few of my thinking patterns and helped me start reframing them. It would definitely be helpful if she asked more questions to break things down or prodded more as it’s a little bit hard sometimes to elaborate on what I’m really trying to say. Overall, I’ve really enjoyed my experience so far and it’s been already helpful.

P.H.·Apr 26, 2020


Very responsive and sensitive to concerns. She provided me very concrete thoughtful input and recommendations.

C.H.·Mar 25, 2020


Rachael is outstanding! She makes me feel truly heard, asks questions that make me think and dig deep within, AND helps provide manageable steps to reach solutions. 10/10 would recommend.

M.A.·Mar 04, 2020


She is great therapist.

S.T.·Feb 24, 2020


I struggle with obsessive-compulsive thought patterns, often feeling like I NEED to do a particular thing to feel better. I worked with Rachael for a few years. She is an insightful, compassionate listener who helped me grow and understand myself better. Thanks to her, I feel more confident than ever in working through unpleasant emotions, and in pursuing my life goals. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a therapist.

J.O.·Feb 08, 2020


I made progress with Rachel after a few weeks that I never made before with my previous therapist that I saw weekly for two weeks. She makes difficult topics and reflections easy to manage and definitely trust her guidance, and grateful to have her input

R.E.·Jan 10, 2020


She is a great listener and is nonjudgmental.

J.A.·Dec 15, 2019


Rachael is incredible — a force of listening, a fount of advice, a brilliant mind whose contributions I implicitly trust to help me manage my expectations and anxieties because she takes such an active role in our weekly conversations. Working with her has given me a perspective and steadiness so many aspects of my life lack and I am so, so grateful to have her in my life.

S.H.·Oct 28, 2019


I was nervous about doing counseling remotely, but I think I found a great fit in Rachel. She really puts me at ease, and I always feel comfortable and supported. Live sessions are always productive, and Rachel just has an encouraging, nonjudgmental presence.

N.O.·Oct 02, 2019


Rachael is OUTSTANDING. This is my first experience with counseling/therapy and she's made it something I didn't realize I would enjoy so much. I always feel more confident and planned out after we talk. She helps me build realistic goals and checkpoints to help me get there. I never have to feel embarrassed about what I say (or if I'm crying the whole time!). She feels like my smartest, most helpful friend who gives the very best advice by aiding me in finding my own solutions. 10/10 would recommend!

M.A.·Sep 11, 2019


Rachael has helped me navigate the grief of a really tough breakup, listening to my concerns and trying to answer my questions. Quite literally saved my life.

M..·Sep 09, 2019


Rachel has been extremely helpful in guiding me on how to deal with my anxiety. She is responsive and patient and she has really helped me through a difficult time!

J.E.·Aug 25, 2019


Rachael has been an invaluable partner while I worked through some difficult questions and choices following my husband's death. She is kind, thoughtful and listened to my questions, fears and doubts. She challenged me with thought provoking questions to help me work through my issues. I am forever grateful that she was in my life during this extremely challenging time.

S.H.·Aug 16, 2019


Rachael's stead approach to my issues allowed me to open up my mind to the responsibility I have in seeking self-love. Her questions sparked ideas, which on investigation, lead me to learning what to do next. Great experience.

E.R.·Jul 31, 2019


Rachael has been great ... she’s non judgmental and always responds in a reasonable amount of time. Her insight has been very helpful and useful.

C.L.·Jul 07, 2019


Rachel is the perfect counselor. She actually LISTENS and respects my thoughts enough to remember and dive deep into everything happening in my life. She helped me through a dark time and I’m not sure if I would have gotten through it without her. Highly recommend.

C.A.·Jun 24, 2019


Rachael Hyatt is a great counsellor, I highly recommend her.

S.T.·Jun 13, 2019


Cognitive Behavior Therapy homework would be really helpful but overall she is a good listener and tells me what I need to hear rather than just what I want to hear, which I appreciate.

M..·May 10, 2019


Rachael is such a wonderful listener, it's so helpful to have someone I trust to talk to before reacting to stressful life events without thinking. She is great!

J.A.·Apr 12, 2019


Rachael is super helpful and nice. She is always understanding, clear, and works hard to help. I think she is a super great counselor.

R.A.·Mar 27, 2019


Since the beginning of my time on BetterHelp, Rachael has supportive, empathetic, an exceptional sounding board, and has provided spectacular navigation and perspective through the topics I’ve discussed with her. I’d recommend her without hesitation.

M.A.·Feb 11, 2019


Rachel is my first ever therapist. I'm dealing with a situation I've never dealt with before, and she has been a great help guiding me through it all. I'm extremely glad I was matched with her. Thank you, Rachael!

M.I.·Feb 03, 2019


Rachael is and continues to be great. She listens to me thoroughly and offers pushback when needed but always lets me talk out my ideas. Thank you Rachael

D.Y.·Jan 28, 2019


Rachael helped me work through problems and anxieties that were holding me back in a logical and step by step basis. I feel a weight lifted from my shoulders since starting with her.

K.A.·Sep 17, 2018


Rachael is very attentive and understands where I am coming from and has options for what I am going through. If I don't reply she's always messaging me again to check in and see how things are going.

J.E.·Aug 29, 2018


My experience with Rachael has been really great thus far. She’s a wonderful listener and the questions she asks really make me think about my life and choices and what I can do to fix my problems. I would definitely recommend her expertise and this website to others.

E.M.·Aug 29, 2018

A.B.·Aug 22, 2018


Rachel is really respectful of me. She always offers a good perspective and encourages a positive progression. Without judging me or my wishes or impeding on my own decisions and life choices.

J.I.·Aug 05, 2018


I love talking to Rachel. She always makes me feel better!

L.I.·Aug 03, 2018


I really enjoy speaking with Rachel each week and have seen tremendous improvements personally in how I handle the matters I choose to discuss with her. She’s very kind and understanding, relaxed and easy to talk to.

M.I.·Jul 16, 2018


I’ve been working with Rachael for 6 months now. She has helped me come so far. She is understanding and fully listens to my needs. Every session I take away something helpful or insightful. I always leave with a homework in a sense of “keep tabs on how you are feeling physically” “write down the times you notice you get stressed” stuff like that. My habits have improved for the better and I’m better able to recognize and understand my own feelings and work through them. She is amazing and I recommend her to everyone! Thank you Rachael for all your help.

C.A.·Jul 13, 2018


Rachel is really good at pin pointing down the issues I am facing. She was able to help me boost my self-esteem and teach me couple of technics. They worked really well on me. Thank you Rachel !

J.O.·Jun 28, 2018


Rachael is a wonderful counselor. She is understanding, supportive and offers just the right insights to guide your process into the right direction. I felt very safe with her and was always looking forward to our sessions. Rachael helped me a lot and i will reach out to her again in challenging times.

T.A.·Apr 27, 2018


Rachael is a great counselor. Thoughtful and thorough, and focuses on positive focal points as to not get down on issues. I like the different exercises she suggests - like journaling and different worksheets she provides. She’s a great counselor!

J.E.·Apr 02, 2018


Rachael has been my counselor for about 2 weeks and she has helped in so many ways!!! ❤

K.E.·Mar 17, 2018


In this short time she has helped me more then I can explain.

M.O.·Mar 16, 2018


I loved her work and I thank her for her precious time and attention.

J.O.·Mar 13, 2018


Before I referred myself to BetterHelp I was so low and depressed, but since talking to Rachael, she has helped me thoroughly and think positively about myself and life in general. She is a kind and caring, helpful person who I would recommend to anyone suffering with low self esteem or depression. If you may not want to talk to family or friends then Rachel is there to listen and help advise you, I would like to thank her so much.

H.O.·Feb 28, 2018


Rachael is awesome. Very attentive, knowledgeable and has great suggestions to help with things you just might not have thought of yourself.

C.H.·Feb 26, 2018


In the beginning of my counseling with Rachael, I was completely unsure about myself and where my life would take me but after almost two weeks, I am starting to regain the confidence that I had lost. I can say is that it feels like an "AH HA" moment where a light bulb goes off and that feeling is simply priceless.

E.L.·Feb 21, 2018


Rachael is very attentively and responds to my messages very quickly. She understands my issues and offers valid advice and questions for me to think about. She has helped me very much.

A.M.·Feb 18, 2018


Rachael is a true professional. She understands, respects, and keeps me together. Her help has changed my life and I couldn’t praise her or BetterHelp enough.

M.A.·Feb 11, 2018


Rachael has been very helpful for me so far and is extremely understanding. I feel comfortable talking to her and I don’t feel like I’m being judged or analyzed. She approaches my problems by helping me explore my feelings a bit deeper and provides me with exercises that facilitate thinking at a higher level. She also provides great solutions on how I can improve my current situation. I would definitely recommend her!

S.A.·Feb 09, 2018


Rachel was wonderful, helpful, and responded in a timely manner. She offered sound advice and was very helpful and supportive for me.

K.E.·Feb 01, 2018


I have had a very positive experience with Rachael. She listens well and offers thoughtful, well-timed advice. Her approach is open and tolerant and I leave sessions feeling understood and listened to. She pragmatically blends CBT and ACT principles. I couldn't ask for anything more from her!

J.O.·Feb 01, 2018


Rachael listens well and provides solutions while trying to cope better with an issue. I would highly recommend Rachael! Her service has been much appreciated!
