Preferred Name: Raven

About Me

I am a licensed Psychotherapist in NY and the owner of RW Psychotherapy. I am passionate about providing culturally responsive care that acknowledges the intersection of identity (gender, race, sexuality) and social and economic issues. In my practice, I use different approaches including exposure and response prevention (ERP), and EMDR to treat anxiety, depression, trauma, life and career transitions, prenatal and postnatal parenthood mental health, burnout, and compassion fatigue.

Education & Experience

I graduated with a Bachelor of Social Work from Seton Hall University and obtained my Master's degree in Social Work at Fordham University. I have spent the last two decades working with people of all ages, backgrounds, and life experiences, providing psychotherapy and services that help to alleviate emotional and relational distress.
