"Rachel Coleman, MFT, CEDS provides true excellence in the treatment of eating disorders. While working as a Primary Therapist at Shoreline Center for Eating Disorder Treatment, she displayed a compassionate dedication to her clients recovery process. Her work reflects a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of treating this very difficult and life threatening disorder. I have and will continue to highly recommend Rachel to anyone in South Orange County who is looking for a dedicated therapist who really "gets it"."

 

-Rachel Levi, MFT, CEDS, CEO of Shoreline Center for Eating Disorder Treatment

“Rachel is a compassionate and knowledgeable clinician that I have had the honor to collaborate with over the past few years. Rachel and I have worked closely together in the care of  many clients and I strongly value her experience and clinical judgement in determining the best plan of care. I appreciate that she is a therapist that is the perfect balance of supportive and solution-focused. She is well versed in several styles of therapy and develops an individual plan for each client based upon their specific symptoms and goals.  In addition to my experience with her as a true expert in disordered eating, she is a wonderful resource for adolescents and DBT therapy. The fact that all three of these specialties are areas that many clinicians shy away from or do not have training in is further testament to Rachel’s value as a clinician. I am so thankful to have her as a resource to refer clients to and as a colleague to consult with."

"Rachel is very personable with clients and approaches sessions in a gentle yet direct way.  This approach allows the client to open up to Rachel, but also to have firm boundaries with their goals and behaviors.  Rachel is also great at meeting the client where they are at in their recovery process to prevent them from feeling overwhelmed in the process.  She is very thorough in her work and  in all the years working with her she has been a great inspiration"
