Raquel d’Escoto (she/her)

Hi! I’m Raquel d’Escoto (she/her). I am a psychotherapist in Chicago, IL & I currently practice at Roamers Therapy.

Philosophy

Life is fun and exciting but also challenging. At times life is overwhelming and we are not sure how to deal with how we are feeling. Sometimes it is difficult to name what you are feeling and working through them can seem impossible. Through my work with those experiencing domestic violence, I have seen a range of individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma and more. 

As a modern, eclectic, and trauma informed therapist, I recognize and understand the importance of creating a space that is free to be expressive and non-judgmental.  As your therapist, I strive to build a relationship that is trusting and meeting you where you are at. Pulling from various therapeutic approaches, I will help you explore and empower yourself. I will help you navigate and develop strategies to help you cope and work through the stressors and difficulties of life. My approach is collaborative and tailored to you specifically. 

I am honored to work with you and to hear your life story. I fully acknowledge the importance of sharing one’s life and I thank you for choosing me.  A phrase that was once told to me and now I carry with me is ‘Be kinder to yourself’. Life is not always easy, and you are doing the best you can. 

Personal

I like to read, hike, go on walks, travel, trying new food, spend time with family and friends, watching Netflix.
