Rachelle Belott, M.S., LPC-IT
Change is a very complex process. People are very comfortable with their routine patterns and are heavily punished by their emotions when they attempt to change the routine. Change is unpleasant in the short term, but in the long term can improve the quality of our lives.
Rachelle believes people are born neutral, and that everyone has the potential for both good and bad. People are not broken: the environment is. The goal of counseling is to get to the root of the problem and help find what works for each individual client to improve their lives they way they desire. The goal is not to cure an illness, but rather to obtain and maintain a life worth living. Rachelle’s end goal is to empower clients to identify and resolve their struggles independent of mental health professionals in the future once they refine their skills.
Rachelle takes a modern, holistic, and interpersonal approach, incorporating elements from different theories depending on the client. She is mainly trained to look through a humanistic and cognitive-behavioral lens. She also enjoys incorporating techniques from each of the following theories:
Dialectical Behavior Therapy
Her areas of specialty include the following:
Grief & Loss
Attachment & Relationship Issues
Gender Identity Struggles
Rachelle holds a masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. She has experience working in a domestic violence shelter for women, college-counseling center, and in a medium-security correctional facility for men. She enjoys working with a wide variety of ages and cultures. She offers a safe, confidential presence and is eager to offer support and guidance on your journey.
