HFM Welcomes Two New Behavioral Health Providers

Clinical therapists Rachel Fruin and Bonnie Halper are the newest members of the clinical team at HFM Behavioral Health.

Both Rachel and Bonnie provide therapy for a wide variety of issues including drug and alcohol dependency, depression, anxiety, grief, trauma and more.

Rachel has been in the mental health field for four years, and enjoys helping patients discover the positive things that they have to share with the world.

“I want to combat all negativity that I find,” said Rachel. “I work very hard to help my client’s obtain a more positive perspective and find reason and strength, even in their suffering,” Rachel earned her master of science degree in counseling, and undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

In her spare time, Rachel enjoys reading mystery novels, gardening, biking, traveling, and spending time with family.

Bonnie also has 9 years of experience in the mental health field working with adolescents to adults. She became a clinician because of her passion for working with people, and being able to offer counseling to ease the struggles of others. Bonnie believes that therapy is an investment and wants patients to find a therapist that they are comfortable with.

“I know patients are doing the best they can with their current knowledge and almost all have the capacity to live their life fully,” said Bonnie. “It’s important that I take time to listen and provide patients with evidence-based treatment and approaches to meet the unique needs of each patient.”

She graduated with a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2013. Bonnie’s clinical interests include drug and alcohol treatment, depression, anxiety, trauma (including PTSD), and grief therapy. She has training in Cognitive Behavior Treatment (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Treatment (DBT), Greif Therapy, Substance Abuse Treatment, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Parent Skills Training, and Motivational Interviewing.

Bonnie enjoys researching the latest trends in effective treatment options, hiking, biking, and activities with friends and family.
