RACQUEL RIVERO, LPC, RPT, ACS

Clinical Director
Bilingual Counselor

I specialize in working with children (ages 3+), adolescents, and teens. My focus is on helping individuals build upon their strengths and gain insight into the areas of their lives that they desire to change. I believe that the therapeutic relationship and providing a safe environment are the building blocks that help me guide others in their personal growth and goal attainment. I strive to provide a caring, motivating, and supportive environment where clients can feel safe to explore any issues they bring to counseling.

I believe that helping individuals develop the skills necessary for change is an important part of counseling. I gear my therapeutic work to the needs and concerns of the client, utilizing cognitive behavioral approaches, play therapy, expressive arts therapy, solution focused therapy, and an overall eclectic approach.


I have experience working as a School Counselor, allowing me to provide insight into any school-related needs for parents and their children.

TARA DONATIELLO, LAC

  

My aim is to provide a safe, caring environment where clients feel comfortable to explore their feelings and confront the challenges they are facing. I aspire to help my clients develop effective coping skills, as well as the resilience to face whatever obstacles life may bring along. I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, grief/loss, family changes, school-based issues, and the challenges of parenting.


I use a person-centered approach because I believe a trusting relationship is imperative to helping clients grow as individuals and make positive changes in their lives. I also utilize solution-focused, cognitive behavioral (CBT), dialectical behavioral (DBT), mindfulness-based, and play therapy strategies to help my clients work through their challenges and effectively achieve their goals.

JEANETTE BOUROULT, PSYD

  

I am a practicing psychologist with nearly 20 years of experience working with children, adolescents, young adults and parents in both educational and mental health settings.  Having earned a master’s degree in education and a doctorate in psychology, I have a distinct perspective of the whole person within broad contexts.  I pride myself on my ability to establish comfortable and trusting relationships. 
I primarily utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and supplement treatment with techniques from a variety of modalities, including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Reality Therapy, and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT).  I focus on improving emotional regulation, social skills, and self-advocacy to enhance my client’s wellbeing.  I have extensive experience in anxiety and depression, ADHD, developmental delays including Autism Spectrum Disorder, school-based and learning issues, trauma, relationship conflicts, life adjustments, and parenting issues.  My specialization in educational and psychological testing allows me to provide support in enhancing client and family understanding of often complicated reports and diagnoses, as well as recommending appropriate interventions.  My goal is to empower individuals as their own advocates of their strengths and needs as they make changes and choices to promote their potential for success across the lifespan.
