Why Raquel Betesh, M.S., M.S. chose to be in the helping profession
I love connecting with people and I love helping people connect with others. I grew up in a very open-minded, spiritual, and Sephardic home, where my parents spoke openly about the importance of our personal connection with Hashem, and that has been the cornerstone of everything I've ever accomplished. I truly believe that every person we meet is for a reason and that I came into this world to help others help themselves. I believe life is a journey and we end up where we are most needed.
With an early interest in psychology and helping, I embarked on a long and rewarding road to become a Psychology Professor. I have a Bachelors in Psychology and a Master’s in Neuroscience and Education from Columbia University and a Master’s in Education from the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education and Administration.
I became a Kallah teacher since I had such a positive experience with my personal Kallah teacher I wanted to create that experience for others. This led to my having been involved in shidduchim for the past 9 years. Throughout those years, I became a dating and relationship coach. It was a gradual and organic process and I feel very blessed to be in a position to help others.
Raquel Betesh, M.S., M.S.'s approach
I am told I bring out the best in people and I look forward to discovering the best in you! I view coaching as a mirror, allowing you to see what is already inside. Through listening, questioning, and challenging, you will come to your own clarity of how you want to approach the situations we discuss. I will never tell you what to do, I will rather help you see, understand, and come to your own conclusions.
What you can expect from sessions with Raquel Betesh, M.S., M.S.

Raquel Betesh, M.S., M.S.'s experience working with the Jewish community
As a Kallah teacher, shadchan, and dating coach, I am well-versed in a multitude of aspects across Jewish communities. For years I volunteered my free time to help those in a very vulnerable and oftentimes painful chapter in life called shidduchim as this was and is my passion.
I am looking forward to the opportunity of helping even more singles as I transition into allocating more time for dating coaching. My goal is to help you fall in love. First and foremost, with yourself.
