Raquel DeLuccia works with couples and individuals facing stress, relationship conflicts and emotional detachment. Her goal is to help clients heal and repair a relationship or an individual’s self-worth. Her approach is based on connectivity and collaboration, paying particular attention to patterns of interaction that no longer serve the client or relationship that tend to keep people “stuck”.
By addressing these patterns, awareness is created and changes can be made where needed to increase satisfaction in life and relationships.
For her work with couples, Raquel has training in Emotionally Focused Therapy which helps partners identify the underlying emotions and unmet attachment needs that lead to disconnection. Through this type of therapy, deeper connections, vulnerability and healthy communication are cultivated by couples for an overall more meaningful relationship.
Raquel is also trained in a therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). This is a groundbreaking and evidence-based therapy to reprocess negative thoughts, feelings and memories and is proven effective in healing many forms of traumas.
Most importantly, Raquel works with her clients where they are in their unique process to address their needs and reach their goals in order to ultimately feel better in their lives and relationships.
As a mother of two, she finds particularly enjoyment working with couples or individuals struggling with parenting/coparenting, single parenting and blending of families.
Raquel is a Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist. She is a dual masters clinician, with Master’s degrees in Psychology from Adelphi University and Marriage and Family Therapy from ASU. With 12 years of clinical experience, Raquel has developed a diverse skill set working with individuals and couples from various cultural backgrounds and mental health concerns.
