Rachel Hickmott, LMSW

About Me

I am Rachel Hickmott, LMSW. I live in the valley of Idaho with my partner and our two cats, Popeye and Olive. There is nothing I love more than a cozy night at home with my furry family, a scented candle, and a good show. I graduated with my master’s degree in social work from Boise State University in May of 2021. My values in social justice, empathy, and the dignity and worth of a person are what drew me to this field of work.


Therapeutic Approach

As a therapist, I believe that the client is the expert of their own experiences and that I am simply a guide on their journey. I primarily use a person-centered and strengths-based approach as I work with clients, as well as including skills and concepts from dialectical behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. I often utilize motivational interviewing, specifically with adolescent clients to help involve them in their own recovery and skill building. I believe in the importance of creating a safe space for the therapeutic relationship to flourish, so that the client can grow and improve freely.

Rachel has been amazing. My daughter really connected with her and she has helped her so much. I also love the location it’s so relaxing that I usually take my little one outside while my daughter has her session. -M.K.
