Rae Rabideau, MS
Rae Rabideau received a master’s degree in psychology from DePaul University, with a concentration in human development. While in graduate school, Rae conducted coping skills group sessions for individuals living in disadvantaged neighborhoods. After living in Chicago for seven years, Rae returned to her hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan to be closer to family. She is currently working toward her CAADC certification through the Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals (MCBAP).
Rae completes biopsychosocial assessments with new clients when they arrive at Sanford House. These assessments are the keystone to each client’s individualized treatment. In addition, she leads group therapy sessions, with many groups focused on coping skills and relapse prevention.
In her free time, Rae likes to be with her family. Her most treasured hobby, however, is fishing. Rae is a lover of animals and a proud mom to a son and two rescue dogs.
“Nothing is as rewarding as helping people heal. The disease of addiction ruins lives; every day I get the privilege of watching people take their lives back. I have abundant hope for the men and women who choose treatment at Sanford House.”
