Rachel Broman, LMSW received her graduate degree from the University of Michigan.
Her early clinical experiences include working at Michigan Medicine Adult Psychiatric Service and a variety of outpatient, inpatient and residential settings where she worked with children, adolescents and adults navigating mental and psychosocial barriers. Additionally, Rachel has worked on multiple research projects published in various journals throughout her career with a particular focus in trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Rachel has also had the privilege to train students and other therapists as well as manage therapy programs during her career.
In therapy Rachel’s approach focuses on joining with each client to use evidence-based practices such as Prolonged Exposure for PTSD and Cognitive Processing for Trauma and Cognitive Behavioral Couples Therapy for PTSD to achieve therapeutic goals. While Rachel believes these approaches are powerful pathways to treatment and improvement of functioning, she also believes in not losing individual client needs and preferences along the way. To ensure this balance Rachel spends time to build a strong therapeutic alliance with clients to cement and support other therapeutic interventions. The same is true in her work with other difficulties such as insomnia, depression, anger, grief, and anxiety.
