Rachel’s background encompasses working with individuals with ID/DD, individuals with other disabilities, autistic individuals, older adults in memory care, and individuals with mental health needs.

Rachel’s role with The Music Settlement consists of both clinic-based work at the University Circle campus as well as community contracts around the Cleveland area, including mental health facilities and adult care programs. Rachel is passionate about treating each client as their own unique person, so she utilizes a humanistic, person-centered, and evidence-based approach to help her clients find healing and achieve their goals.

When she is not at work, Rachel loves to spend time with her husband and friends, discover new places to visit nearby and afar, go to concerts and listen to live music, and relax with nature and plants. She loves the music and arts culture here in Cleveland and is proud to be a part of The Music Settlement’s legacy of music therapy.
