Raisa A. Manejwala Psy. D.
I am a licensed psychologist in the State of Maryland. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland. I also earned a Doctor of Psychology degree from La Salle University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A key aspect of therapy is building a strong therapist-client relationship that is genuine, empathic, and judgment-free. I value creating this kind of therapeutic atmosphere which will make it much easier for you to feel comfortable and open while discussing your life’s challenges. I was trained in the cognitive-behavioral approach to treatment, which involves looking at how your thoughts and beliefs about yourself, others, and the world influence your emotions and actions.
We will work together to solve current problems in your life so that you can work towards achieving your goals. I currently practice at Bravo Psychological Group in Gaithersburg, MD to help older adolescents and adults manage their relationship issues, anxiety, social anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, and other life stressors. I also help clients heal and move forward from their grief and loss. Seeking professional mental health treatment does not mean that one cannot also focus on their spiritual growth. I value providing culturally-sensitive treatment if you wish to discuss your cultural background and/or religious/spiritual beliefs in therapy. I also participate in raising mental health awareness in my local Muslim community.
I offer a free phone consultation so we can see if we’d be a good fit working together.
