Raja Bashiti, Founder & Primary Provider
I am a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor with a specialty in Trauma and Crisis. Throughout my journey as a therapist, I have been proud and excited to witness people grow and find their unique way to increase coping skills and resilience with their life changes and challenges.
I have worked with different groups for over ten years. For 4 years, I was honored to work with refugees and immigrants, and witnessed them finding their own way to overcome their trauma and grief.
Living in today’s unpredictable challenges and increased stress environment can greatly affect our mental health. It may drive our soul and inner peace to suffer or cry out, and require clinical / professional attention, just like our bodies. Whatever destination you would like to achieve through your therapeutic process, we will work together to find the appropriate approach to reach it. Achieving your goals will become my target.
My primary goal is to create a safe environment for the client to facilitate healing and alleviate symptoms of concerning issues by creating a treatment plan that outlines the clinical approach and intervention we can use to achieve your goals.
Besides Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic interventions, I utilize EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), hypnotherapy, and Sandplay therapy where appropriate. I have level one training for the Internal Family System (IFS) therapy technique as well.
I look forward to meeting you where you are on your journey and helping you rediscover your path to better mental health.
