waves background
Rachel Forbes LCSW

Meet Rachel Forbes

(she/her)

As a Korean American transracial and transcultural adoptee, I offer a unique lens to my therapeutic work and adoption advocacy. My therapeutic approach is holistic and mind-body integrated, with an intention of increasing self-awareness and self-leadership.

In our work together, I’m here to honor your reality – whatever that may be – so you can begin your healing process. With compassion and curiosity, my role is to help you nurture and strengthen that which encourages you to feel heard, liberated, and fulfilled.

In addition to offering individual therapy, I also offer educational training for large groups, clinical consultation for mental health practitioners, and my professional perspective and experience in interviews, podcasts, public panels, discussions, and forums.

R. Forbes

Featured in Wondermind, a mental health brand co-founded by Selena Gomez and Mandy Teefy and the SomaShare App, offering practices and workshops for somatic healing.

Testimonials from a previously held Adult Adoptee Group

Testimonials

“I really enjoyed some of the techniques you taught us! I know therapists may not always have the answers, and a lot is on you, but I appreciated different coping techniques, techniques that can
help us thrive as individuals. You taught great ‘in the moment,’ ‘what do I do now’ kind of advice.”

“In particular, I appreciated the conversations surrounding trauma and the primal wound. This information and way of understanding adoption was presented in a way that I felt was more tangible for me.”

– S.H.

2022

“…The group topics helped me make realizations, learn, and understand myself as an adoptee. It allowed a safe space, a holding space for my emotions and thoughts. A community where we are all alike in that we are adoptees! It allowed the time for me to reflect and think and be with like-minded people.”
