Rachel Bosemer, MS, CCC-SLP
Enneagram Type: Reformer
Qualities: Purposeful, Perfectionist
Rachel’s favorite part of therapy is the moment that everything clicks or comes together and the child is overcome by their accomplishments. She also enjoys incorporating the gym and movement into her sessions. On the weekends you can find her in the desert as she races off-road ATV’s and UTV’s. She and her sister are some of the few girls out there! If she isn’t in the desert you can find her floating down the Colorado River, at the beach, or spending time with her family.
