Professional statement

Adam Ortiz is a therapist in New York. He serves clients of all walks of life, and is especially welcoming to those from marginalized communities, such as people of color, immigrants, the queer community, and those who identify as neurodiverse. Adam works with those who are experiencing issues with anxiety, trauma, depression, and who seek to find purpose and a deeper connection to their authentic self.

Adam's therapy approach is one that begins with a humanistic and holistic perspective. He believes in building a sense of trust before engaging in tool building interventions such as CBT and DBT, as well as somatic approaches for calming and regulating the nervous system. Adam also uses more flexible approaches such as existential and spiritual therapy to build concepts and understanding around the ideas of resiliency, personal transformation, forgiveness, and self-actualization.

Adam brings a lifetime of experience as a community worker helping at-risk populations into his clinical endeavors. He is a lifetime martial artist of over 35 years, which supplements his approach to somatic and spiritual interventions. He is also an advocate for social justice, and is responsible for the formation of Social Responsibility Committees that address social justice issues within company/corporate settings.

Adam received his Master’s in Social Work from the University at Buffalo. Adam is available for virtual sessions for clients who are based in New York.

Message to clients

I believe that every person is eventually faced with a difficult challenge, and in that moment, there is an opportunity to develop a deeper, more fulfilling connection with themselves. Being open to therapy is an amazing place to start a personal transformation, and that begins with finding the ground underneath your feet. Building that base requires a sense of trust with your therapist, a developing language to help identify problems and goals, and a growing sense of hope. Quite often, the most notable force standing in our way is fear.

With a unique list of clinical and life experiences, I believe that I am well suited to walk with you down that road. Whether in individual or group sessions, I aim to provide a space where authenticity is a priority, and the goals we set together are accomplishable by learning relevant skills and measuring every step of progress forward.

I look forward to hearing from you soon. Please feel free to reach out and schedule your free phone consultation to see if we are a good fit for one another. Thank you.
