Professional statement

Raquel Molina-Ravenna is a bilingual Licensed Clinical Social Worker (#70124) whose practice focuses on working with young adult women/men, and college students having a hard time transitioning to college life. She also works with individuals who oftentimes struggle with frequent self-defeating beliefs or negative self talk, which prevents them from following through with goals, dreams and living to their ultimate potential. Raquel has an understanding of and appreciates helping Hispanic/Latinx clients explore ideas and identify barriers where cultural beliefs may interfere with a person's mental health and personal growth.

Raquel is a mindfulness-based therapist and likes to utilize a strengths-based approach by incorporating a personalized treatment plan with her clients to set goals, and discuss ways in how to improve their life. Raquel is trained in various treatment modalities, such as CBT, Brainspotting, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), Mindfulness-based Therapy and Somatic Experiencing. She likes to utilize different types of treatment approaches specific to her client's unique needs.

Raquel's office is located in the area of Woodland Hills, however she will gladly provide Telehealth services for those who are experiencing barriers coming into the office. Clients are able to log in for their sessions from their computer, tablet or mobile device via secure platform.


Message to clients

The first step can be hard, but take comfort in knowing you found a therapist who cares about your emotional wellbeing. Everyone experiences moments of struggle and hardship at some point in their lifetime. Individual therapy can not only be helpful for additional support during a crisis or challenging time, but it can also be used for a variety of other reasons such as personal growth, wanting insight about behavioral patterns, have a deeper understanding of past and current relationships, and improving one's daily life.

As we begin the therapeutic journey together I like to develop a meaningful relationship and judgment-free zone with my clients in order for them to heal without fear of being judged. I believe that healing and growth are possible for every individual. My personal mission is to help you heal from past traumas or current situations to improve your emotional wellbeing.
