My name is Brad Rahr, M.A., and I am a Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern specializing in working with young adults and adolescents struggling with depression and anxiety. Coming alongside those suffering through addictive behaviors and loss of motivation or passion, I seek to help uncover a sense of self rooted deeply in connected relationship.
When struggling through depression or anxiety, we often spend all of our time in survival mode that we have no more energy left to live. I hope to journey with others in the building of self-awareness. Having an identity grounded in hope can lead us to the discovery of passion. We get to taste and see what living life to the fullest truly means. I always try to meet my clients where they are, joining with them in their experience with empathy and authenticity.
I also see clients going through Grief and those with a history of Trauma. With patience and encouragement, I seek to maintain a safe space for people seeking refuge and healing.
Spending time with my wife, Ashley, while in nature is my greatest joy. Gardening, foraging, hiking – all things in nature give me a sense of peace and purpose. A cup of coffee along with a good book and long talks are ideal and I seek them eagerly with my family, friends, and clients at almost all times.
I received my BA in Philosophy from the University of Central Florida in 2014 and graduated with my MA in Counseling from the Reformed Theological Seminary in 2019.
