Practicing Since: 2006
Raquel Sumaray received her Masters of Arts in Christian Counseling at Capital Bible Seminary in Lanham, MD, as well as her Masters in General Administration at University of MD, University College, College Park, MD. She is a Board Certified counselor with the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC) and is working towards her counseling licensure in Virginia. Raquel has counseled clients dealing with anxiety disorders, co-dependent issues, depression, pre-marital and marriage issues while working for the Center for Pastoral Counseling Center of Northern, VA, and Cherrydale Baptist Church.
Raquel has a heart to see people healed emotionally and spiritually, “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” Psalms 147:3 NKJV. The foundation of her counseling stems from biblical wisdom and the use of sound clinical practice—such as cognitive behavioral, family systems therapy interventions—that depends on the Holy Spirit to bring about lasting change.
Raquel grew up in Maryland but currently resides in Alexandria, VA, and is a member of Columbia Baptist Church in Falls Church, VA.
