Hi, I’m Raquel.

I'm a clinical psychologist and confidence coach from New York.

Before I tell you a bit more about myself, let’s talk about you. 

Chances are, you've landed on my page because you’re not feeling completely happy with your life right now and aren’t sure what to do next.

You might be feeling depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed, struggling to cope. Or perhaps you’re experiencing fear of failure, self-doubt or low self-confidence which is holding you back from amazing opportunities.

Whatever the reason is, I’m here to help.

My journey in the helping field began during my time as a bunk counselor at a summer camp named 'Ramapo for Children.' This camp served at-risk children, many of whom had faced traumatic experiences and experienced behavioral difficulties. 

Although the role was challenging at times, witnessing the positive transformation of the children was incredibly fulfilling. This experience sparked a strong interest in me to learn more about how to help people improve their lives, which led me to pursue my doctorate in clinical psychology.

Throughout my years as a clinical psychologist, I’ve had the pleasure of working with people aged 2 to 96 on a wide range of difficulties in a variety of clinical settings. Now, I have an online private practice serving adults in New York who need support with depression, anxiety, life transitions, grief and stress. 

My primary theoretical approach is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). However, I often incorporate other approaches as needed to best help you manage your symptoms.

I also offer 1:1 confidence coaching to people worldwide, helping them build their confidence, overcome obstacles holding them back in life, and establish a clear action plan towards achieving their goals. Having dealt with issues of low self-confidence, self-doubt, and fear of failure myself, I’m excited about sharing the tools and strategies that have transformed my life with you.

Remember you’re not alone.  I’m here to support you on your journey as you work towards achieving the happiness and success you deserve.
