Rachel Winzer

Therapist Training Programme Coordinator (North America)

Rachel is responsible for the roll-out and implementation of COMPASS’ therapist training across US and Canadian sites. 

Before joining COMPASS, Rachel worked as a mental health specialist at the McLean Franciscan inpatient psychiatric unit in Boston, helping patients and their families manage a wide variety of challenges. Before McLean, Rachel was a behavioural treatment counselor at Germaine Lawrence in Boston, a residential treatment centre for adolescents, specialising in trauma and PTSD. Rachel holds a Master of Science in Social Cognition (with distinction) from University College London and a Bachelor of Psychology from University of Colorado Boulder.

Being a part of the COMPASS team and collaborating with like-minded individuals to further human-centered research and improve lives ignites a sense of purpose and passion in me. We are motivated daily by our collective desire to break down barriers to high-quality treatment and combat mental health issues with innovative therapies.
