About Me

Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read my intro. I am a licensed therapist who specializes in mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, adjustment, thinking disorders, etc., and I am also trained in family and relationship needs as well. I picked a specialty in marriage and family therapy because I genuinely believe that societal, family, and cultural conditions deeply influence the way we think, feel, act, and react to day-to-day interactions—which is the foundation of MFT’s systemic perspective. Additionally, during my time as an intern, I chose to be supervised under a clinical psychologist (Ph. D), a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC), and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) to learn various perspectives, skills, and resources in mental health.

I am a true advocate for optimal wellness. I have experience working with the Department of Juvenile Justice, family court, school systems, private practices, and community agencies, and I am a member of both the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT) and Florida Family Therapy Alliance (FFTA). I am proud to be both LGBTQA+ and Autism allied. In my experience working with people with diverse backgrounds, I focus on helping all clients feel safe, welcomed, and respected.

As your mental wellness partner, I commit to provide you and your partner with support and encouragement throughout your journey. I try my best to stay easily accessible, while providing both a safe environment and essential feedback to you both. I look forward to working with you!

Raquel has been attentive and understanding for the past few months, helping us learn about one another and given us fantastic guidance on how to make our relationship stronger. I have always felt very comfortable speaking to her about anything and appreciated all the sessions we’ve had. I Will definitely be recommending Raquel to others. Thank you very much!
