On this episode, I speak with Rachel Gersten, a New York City therapist and health/wellness coach with a passion for helping people lead their healthiest lives possible.  Rachel and I met on instagram (not surprising - that's how I seem to meet most people!) and instantly connected based on our shared belief in the importance of addressing mental health in a more holistic way.  Rachel is one of many licensed mental health professionals who will be participating in the Movement + Mental Health Pop Up happening in New York on September 30th, hosted at Custom PT (register at  

Rachel completed her undergraduate degree at the Arizona State University where she double majored in psychology and human development. She attended Teachers College Columbia University and earned two masters degrees (Ed.M., M.A.) in Psychological Counseling.

Rachel believes that wellness looks different on everyone, and works closely with clients to help them achieve goals that are realistic for them.  To get in touch with Rachel and learn more about her practice/book an appointment, visit
