Rachel Jecklin, MA, Resident in Counseling
My calling to counseling came at a young age. Those seeds began to take root in a professional capacity around 2001, through my studies in social work and subsequent work in the field of foster care and adoption, child trauma counseling, and behavioral counseling in the schools.
I have been privileged to be a part of Journey since 2019. During my time here, I have deepened my awareness of my calling — to minister to college and career-aged women through various seasons of life. I often work with women around issues of anxiety, life transitions, grief and loss, trauma, and emotional and relational healing.
My own story includes unexpected and difficult challenges, including a loss of my faith in God for a time and the ending of my marriage. God showed Himself to be faithful and brought me back to Him — restoring me, rebuilding my life, and reminding me of who I am in Christ. I am grateful that He brings beauty from the ashes and redeems what was lost for His glory. I feel honored to walk with women through the events that shape their lives and see God’s transformative work unfolding within them.
