Raquel has a way of making me feel safe to talk about things that I don't talk about with even those closest to me. She listens intently and asks the questions I don't think to ask myself. I feel very confident that I am in really good hands. If you've experienced childhood trauma, grief of losing someone you love or even betrayal of your partner, or anything in between, she will see you. It feels good to finally be seen. Thank you, Raquel!
