As a Licensed Professional Counselor with over 13 years of experience, I am passionate and dedicated to helping all achieve a higher level of functioning and reach their goals. My areas of expertise range from trauma/abuse, ADHD, parenting issues, stress/anxiety, acculturation issues to life phase problems. I have worked in many therapeutic settings; from residential group homes to mental health outpatient clinics. I am well versed in a myriad of therapeutic interventions, however, I find the most important is to meet each client where they are and establish the therapeutic route together. The client is the expert and the counseling relationship a catalyst for change. I am grounded in the principal that we are all equipped to make the necessary changes each stage of our lives call for, and sometimes we need a bit of guidance on how to access those tools.
My schedule is flexible and I am ready to help whenever. I look forward to working with you.

She's great! Patient and knowledgeable.
Rafaela has a firm understanding of the human condition and best practices. I am blown away at the pieces she’s helped me unveil in my life. I highly recommend her!
Rafaela is incredibly understanding and thoughtful. Not only does she listen, but she offers different ways to cope, practice skills, and helps set goals and make steps to reach them. She has been an immense help.
Rafaela is super nice, she lets you be and respects you. She checks up on you and is always there if you need her. I'm super happy to have her as my counselor.
Rafaela is completely professional but is able to express that she cares and provides insight on how you can redirect your thoughts .
