About Fabiola Raphael, MA
My name is Fabiola Raphael. I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Massachusetts. I am fluent in English and Haitian-Creole. I have experience working with young adults , children and Family.
I have worked with a diverse population of individuals. Cultural competence is something that I take pride in as a counselor, especially working in this melting pot of a city. In many cultures, there is still a stigma attached to Mental Health, I know this firsthand from my own experiences coming from an immigrant background myself. Therefore, it is important for me to build a therapeutic relationship based on understanding, empathy, and genuineness so that you may feel comfortable in a non-judgmental setting.
I use a variety of modalities to highlight the clients' strengths that include, but are not limited to CBT, mindfulness-based interventions, Solution Focused therapy and DBT skills training. I focus on strength-based, solution focused, CBT and Trauma-focused therapy.
