Get to know Rachelle

Rachelle Pritchard has a profound passion for improving the lives of children, adolescents, and adults, especially those experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, grief, trauma, parenting, and foster/adoption issues. Her expertise spans family dynamics, marriage, parenting, and young adult development. Rachelle excels in compassionate Family Intervention, providing trauma-informed care to individuals and families while incorporating community resources.

Rachel is trained in Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI), a trauma-informed approach for children who have experienced maltreatment, abuse, neglect, violence, and lack of secure housing or being placed in multiple homes. TBRI focuses on connecting, empowering, and correcting, and is helpful for both children who have experienced trauma and for their caregivers. She is also certified with Trauma Affect Regulation Education and Therapy (TARGET), a neurobiological model for overcoming chronic stress and healing trauma. 

Rachelle's commitment to making a difference in the lives of others is evident through her extensive internships and volunteer work. At Cook Children’s Medical Center, she delved into identifying systemic barriers affecting chronic patients and caregivers, advocating for equitable healthcare access, and providing vital emotional support to families facing complex needs. Her dedication to ethical and anti-oppressive practice is evident in her culturally sensitive interventions, and in recognizing the significance of religion, spirituality, and philosophical perspectives in patient care.

She is currently completing her Master’s in Social Work (MSW) at the Diana Garland School of Social Work at Baylor University, with a concentration in clinical practice and a specialty in trauma-informed practice.

As part of her dedication to children and families, Rachelle interned with Buckner Children & Family Services (BCFS) and is an ongoing volunteer with Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Tarrant County. At BCFS, she honed her skills as a social work generalist, playing a pivotal role in assessing and addressing the holistic needs of foster children, conducting comprehensive assessments, and implementing tailored service plans to ensure the well-being of vulnerable youth.

As a CASA, Rachelle serves as a steadfast advocate for children within the Texas child welfare system, preparing detailed reports and advocating for permanency or termination recommendations to the Tarrant County courts. She fosters positive relationships with various stakeholders when navigating complex child placement scenarios with empathy and professionalism.

Rachelle is passionate about health and fitness. In 2014 she changed her lifestyle habits to honor her mind, body, and soul. A random fun fact about Rachelle: she is also certified as a personal trainer.
