Professional statement

Raquel Molina-Ravenna is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Tarzana, CA. Raquel specializes in helping young adults with anxiety and low self-esteem. They might feel overwhelmed when in social settings, or struggle with impactful emotions like worry or shame. Sometimes, this distress is the result of a traumatic experience or period of major change, and can negatively impact a person’s relationships with others. Raquel also supports mothers who would like to improve their perinatal or postpartum mental health by finding additional support before and after childbirth.

Raquel’s approach to therapy centers around building a meaningful relationship with each one of her clients and empowering them in self-growth. She is a strengths-based therapist who believes that every person has innate resilience, and she teaches clients how to tap into that natural resilience to overcome the roadblocks in the way of feeling balanced and happy. Raquel educates clients about what happens in the brain and in the body when presented with stress or trauma, and encourages clients to become curious about what’s happening internally for them in different situations. She also practices Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy for those who feel stuck in trauma reactions such as panic attacks or irritability.

Raquel earned a Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Southern California. She is a Reiki energy healer and enjoys incorporating holistic approaches into her sessions so clients heal both the mind and the body. She has experience working in the healthcare setting, which helps her connect with clients of all backgrounds.


Message to clients

I understand that reaching out for an appointment can be the hardest part, however by prioritizing yourself, you are creating space for developing skills to overcome challenges, manage anxiety better, heal from trauma, and learn how to navigate life's complexities with positive change. Are you having self-defeating beliefs, low self-worth, anxiety, or negative self-talk? Or perhaps you believe you "should be doing better" where you are at in this stage of your life. It is time to unravel the programmed beliefs, create alternate ways of thinking, and have a fresh new mindset. Message me for a 15 minute video or telephone consultation if you have any questions or would like to work with me.
