He/Him/HisLicensed Mental Health Counselor, LMHC
Adam Rodriquez is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Providence, Rhode Island. He specializes in helping clients navigate anxiety, chronic pain and illnesses, and race and cultural identity. Additionally, he has a specialty in helping clients explore LGBTQIA+ issues, including sexuality, gender, and identity.
Adam has a social justice background, which motivates him to pay special focus and attention to each individual’s identity – including their race, ethnicity, and orientation. He incorporates different therapy types into sessions, drawing from the skills found in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). He also utilizes mindfulness practices, like meditation and discussion, to provide clients with tools they can implement outside of the therapy room.
Adam strives to help clients understand their concerns on a deep, fundamental level; his hope is for clients to walk away from sessions having learned something new about themselves. He brings a lighthearted element to sessions that help clients relax and open up genuinely without fear of judgment.
Adam received his BA from Brown University and his masters’ degree from the Boston University School of Medicine.
