Professional statement

As a therapist, Raquel enters into each session focused on your specific goals and needs at the core. She truly believes that therapy is an effective way in which mental and emotional health can be managed and improved. Many of her clients are individuals dealing with symptoms related to anxiety, depression, relational distress, childhood trauma, and neurodiversity. She works with persons of all backgrounds and diversities, including LGBTQ+, multi-cultures, nontraditional relationships & families, etc.

Raquel has extensive training in Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Mindfulness Practices, and acquired additional experience by working with the court systems (Department of Children and Families; Department of Juvenile Justice; and Family Law), academic success planning (504s & IEPs), and psychological evaluations.

Our practice, HeadGoals, is super convenient, offering teletherapy in Florida and Oregon. We offer a flexible schedule with both evening and weekend appointments, and very much look forward to supporting you on your journey. If you have questions about our practice, or if you’re ready to schedule, please email us for the most prompt response.


Message to clients

I am very excited to work with you. I genuinely love what I do, and I am a firm believer and advocate for mental and emotional wellness. Even though the discussion of mental health is not (yet) as prevalent as other variations of healthcare -- I wholeheartedly believe that it is the glue that keeps all else together.

I grew up in a dynamic that did not emphasize the importance of mental and emotional health -- and I am very grateful to be in a position to assist and/or provide education that can be of help in a person's journey towards wellness.
