About

I appreciate, and am often profoundly moved by, the courage people bring to the work of therapy. I strive to honor your commitment by creating a safe and supportive environment that will allow you to learn ways to help alleviate your symptoms and move towards your goals. I see people with a variety of concerns: such as chronic sadness, anxiety, conflict in relationships, loss, life transitions, or a vague sense of being disconnected from one's true self or purpose in life. Therapy can expand your sense of yourself, deepen relationships, ease life transitions, and enrich your life in unforeseen yet exciting ways.
My practice is grounded in contemporary psychodynamic theory. However, I use a blend of techniques that build on the interconnectedness between mind and body and are backed by compelling research in neuroscience, such as clinical hypnosis and visualization. Please visit my website: www.willermangroup.com for more information about my practice.
I came to psychotherapy via a PhD in linguistics, helping people make sense of their thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and experiences. I am a Board member of the Institute of Contemporary Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy and the Mid-Atlantic Group Psychotherapy Society. I am a Certified Group Psychotherapist.

Raquel Willerman's Groups

Women's Weight Management Group

Join a group of women who have been working hard on some of the underlying causes of weight issues. This is a relationally-oriented process group where members seek deeper authenticity with themselves and each other. Members have experienced greater self-confidence, increased effectiveness in other relationships, lessened social anxiety, and an increased sense of well-being.

More about this group

Mixed Gender Therapy Group

This is a group of men and women ranging in age from mid-20s to late 60's who want to have happier more fulfilling relationships. Members use the group process to better understand the impact they have on others and to grow emotionally by becoming more aware of the full range of their own feelings and inner experiences.
