WHO I AM?
My name is Raquel and I am a licensed clinical social worker. I have been working with individuals, families, and communities for over fifteen years. The last ten as a clinical social worker focused on anti-oppression practice and system theory approaches.
My Bachelor Degree is in Education/Family and Human Services from the University of Oregon. My Masters Degree is in Social Work from Portland State University. I have advanced training in relational psychotherapy, grief and loss support, anti-oppression practices, academic advising, trauma-informed practices, and expressive methods. I have experience in supporting clients dealing with life and career transitions. I am client-centered and co-create the therapeutic journey with you. I look forward to discussing the ways I might be helpful to you.
