About me

Are you seeking a path to healthier, more fulfilling relationships, whether you're single and tired of repeating old dating patterns or already in a relationship but looking for effective tools to make it even better? Life is a journey filled with change, and some transitions can be more challenging to navigate than others. When stress, anxiety, or depression creep into your life, it's a signal that something is out of balance.

My name is Dr. Rachel Sims, I specialize in attachment theory, a fundamental element that shapes our daily lives and interactions. My mission is to offer a safe, nurturing, non-judgmental, and compassionate space for adults, couples, and families to share their experiences and effectively manage life's inevitable twists and turns, whether they're positive or negative. My goal is to help you create a greater sense of balance in your life, fostering the transformation you seek.

I'm passionate about working with individuals who are motivated to make positive changes and discover purpose and meaning in their lives. Attachment theory is a key aspect of our approach, impacting not only your relationships with others but also your relationship with yourself. You can explore your attachment style with our free attachment style quiz available on our Instagram account, @uncomplicatedtherapy, which also offers valuable resources. As well as a great book resource for Dating "Are You Love Smart or Love Stupid?"

I have my Doctoral Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy, and I'm committed to lifelong learning. That ensures that I provide you with the most effective therapeutic practices and interventions. With over a decade of experience, I've helped countless individuals dealing with issues such as anxiety, relationship challenges, self-love, career transitions, life changes, and family conflicts. My mission is to equip you with the skills needed to cope effectively and promote your overall well-being.

Making the decision to embark on a therapeutic journey can be overwhelming. I understand the importance of finding a therapist whose personality and approach align with your unique values and needs. I view you as the expert in your own life and I look forward to collaborating with you on your path to achieving your values and unlocking your best self.

Remember, you have the power to heal your life. Louise Hay once said, "We think so often that we are helpless, but we're not. We always have the power of our minds… Claim and consciously use your power." We're here to help you harness that power and create the life you desire.

Dr. Sims is patient and has given me the tools and resources to heal and step into myself. When I first started, I was full of self doubt and I didn’t know who I was. She is supportive during our sessions and answers my messages in between sessions timely and encourages me. Since working with Dr. Sims, I’ve established and kept my boundaries and stepped into my own confidence. The people around me have seen the difference and the glow I have. I recommend working with Dr. Sims!
