Raven Alston

Licensed Therapist, LCSW


As an OCD therapist, I see myself as your sidekick of change, helping kick OCD’s butt one session at a time. The most gratifying part of my job is seeing the first sign of relief, when the person I’m helping can finally see light at the end of the tunnel. When I'm not doing therapy, I love to travel and watch all the Housewives shows.

Get to know Raven Alston

I went with what I was good at! It easily aligned with who I am as a person. Initially, it was a profession I could do for free, simply because I loved talking to people and helping them grow past their problems.

OCD is largely underrepresented and undiagnosed within the Black community.

I'm experienced in treating trauma and working with children and families. Most people identify with feeling some form of trauma, even if it’s not easily defined. When children or parents have been affected by trauma, everyone in the house is affected. I want to help households work better together in overcoming that.

Know that change is possible!

Know that holding back almost never ends in victory.
