RACHEL SPRUILL

Social Health Provider

My name is Rachel Spruill, LCSW, MSW, MEd. I am a Social Health Provider at Sayre Health Center. I have been in this role for over 2 years. I am a transplant from Detroit, MI. However, over the years, I've developed a sense of connectedness and love for West Philly. I tell folks "West Philly is Best Philly!" That said, I enjoy working in the Cobbs Creek community because I have the opportunity to destigmatize mental health in the Black community. I know the importance of helping patients feel safe and understood, because the person they are talking to looks like them. When I meet patients, I often use humor, comic book references, and music to relay information about coping with stress, developmental trauma, and depression, etc. When you meet me, you will notice two things immediately. I like purple and I rep the University of Michigan. "Go Blue!" Everyone can benefit from someone to talk with and someone to listen. I look forward to meeting you and listening to your story. Together, we can come up with a plan to help you reach your goals.
