Are you a therapist that conducts immigration evaluations?

Hi, I’m Cecilia Racine.
I teach therapists how to help immigrants.

As a bilingual immigrant myself, I know the unique perspective that these clients are experiencing. I’m an LCSW with 20 years of experience. I’m licensed in MD, VA, and DC, am certified as a social work supervisor, and experienced in a variety of trauma modalities, including EMDR. 

Over the years, I’ve conducted over 500 evaluations and worked with dozens of lawyers in the various states. 

Immigrants are my passion, I believe they add to the fabric of our country.
