Licensed Mental Health Counselor (FL)
Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (CA)
Bienvenidos [Welcome]! My name is Rachel Camilo Harris, LMHC, LPCC, owner of Handcrafted Counseling & Consulting, and I am licensed to provide mental health counseling services in both Florida & California. I currently provide coast to coast telehealth thearpy for your convenience! I have 10+ years of clinical experience, working with diverse populations and ages, primarily focused on working through trauma recovery.
If you landed here because braving your next venture in your career and interested in establishing or amplifying you're private practice, I provide consultation to assist you in your success. Or if you're searching to gain supervision hours for licensure, I am also a Qualified Supervisor for registered interns in the state of Florida, in search of postgraduate supervision hours.
Why “handcrafted”? I believe there is both an art and science to therapy, and that it is courageous of you to pursue services to enhance your quality of life; therefore, your experience deserves to be handcrafted specifically to address your unique experiences and goals. I specialize in childhood trauma, whether we are engaging in retroactive work to heal the inner child as an adult, or processing concurrent circumstances as a child or adolescent. The foundational tenet of my practice is trauma-informed and my therapeutic approach is authentic, curious and non-judgmental. I bring compassion and energy to meet each of you exactly where you are in your journey. I also enjoy incorporating creativity and humor when appropriate.
My own story and spirituality inspire me to engage in this work; however, it is important to understand that I do not impose my personal beliefs, as I pride myself on professional boundaries and ethics. I am available to incorporate Christian counseling (or how you experience God), if you are seeking this type of approach. I am a woman of color (Latina) and I also pride myself on curating a safe space for issues surrounding racial trauma to be discussed. I am available for speaking engagements, trainings and webinars, and podcasts.

“I’ve worked with various experienced therapists, but I have to say I think I’ve enjoyed working with Rachel the most. I feel like she’s really focused on listening to me and helping me during our sessions, and she truly cares about my improvement! I was a bit skeptical/hesitant about starting EMDR (a process Rachel recommended we try), and even though we just started it recently, I’ve already realized how beneficial it is and will be. I’m really excited to continue working with a therapist who truly cares about my growth!"
“Just celebrated a year with Rachel! I am so happy I chose to invest in myself and do the work I didn't know I needed. I appreciate Rachel for being a part of my journey. Her expertise and resources have worked wonders for me. I can see the growth in myself and have healed in some areas of my life. I appreciate her honesty and patience with me. She is a real one and I am so happy to continue to work with her.”
“Rachel has been and is instrumental in my healing journey through grief. Her expertise, patience and interpersonal skills have helped me to open up and share my experiences with her in order to move forward in life after loss.”
“Rachel introduced me to EMDR therapy that was really effective and allowed me to discover my own connections to my issues at a core level. She guided me safely and effectively to understand the root cause of my issues and then to develop tools to use when needed. I feel empowered and capable of coping with the challenges that have always tripped me up and have found grace and love for myself that has strengthened me. I feel confident and capable of not just coping with life's challenges but thriving with the tools Rachel has helped me develop. She has truly been a blessing!"
I had the pleasure of working with Rachel throughout her extensive training process in EMDR Therapy. Rachel’s commitment to learning this model was remarkable — as was her enthusiasm for guiding each client along the most direct path toward reaching their unique therapeutic goals. I remain impressed by Rachel's willingness to stay on the cutting edge of evidence-based practice.It’s clear that she is committed to treating trauma, anxiety, and other concerns with the most powerful approaches possible. The investment in continued learning is an investment in her clients!
