Rachel Bedick LICSW
Rachel Bedick, LICSW is a clinical social worker providing behavioral health assessments and psychotherapy for children and families at PAGS.
She double-majored in Psychology and Spanish at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT and speaks Spanish fluently. She earned her Master's of Social Work (MSW) and certificate in Urban Leadership from Simmons College. Prior to working at PAGS she was an outpatient therapist at Massachusetts General Hospital's Chelsea Healthcare Center.
Rachel uses play therapy, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioral therapy and trauma-informed practices to help children and families better understand and cope with painful feelings in healthy ways. She is comfortable working with children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD, anxiety, depression, grief, adjustment issues, and trauma. She tailors her sessions to meet the unique needs and goals of each patient and family.
Her favorite quote is, “Anything that's human is mentionable, and anything that's mentionable can be more manageable. When we can talk about our feelings, they become less overwhelming, less upsetting, and less scary. The people we trust with that important talk can help us know that we're not alone.” FRED ROGERS, You Are Special: Neighborly Wit and Wisdom from Mister Rogers.
Outside of work, Rachel enjoys spending time with her family, riding her bike and playing basketball.
