Rachel Connett, Ph.D., (Health Sciences) MSc., MA., LMFT 126234, Registered Associate PCC 5882

Rachel's passion is to meet each client where they are in their life struggle, self, relationships, work, career, and guide them through the process of self-actualization to achieve independence so that they can return to their full functioning.

Rachel uses a tailored therapeutic approach and utilizes evidence-based approaches (CBT, DBT, ACT) that addresses specific problem areas - cognitive distortion, distress tolerance, and behaviors that prohibit people from moving forward in their lives, achieving positive and fulfilling outcomes, and ultimately improve functioning and imbalance.

Dr. Connett works at our San Jose and Santa Clara locations and currently sees clients in the office and through Teletherapy.


Rachel works with adolescents and adults, that have challenges with anxiety, depression, stress management, career changes, substance abuse, addiction, and life transitions.
