Professional statement

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.


Message to clients

Therapy is an invitation to a different kind of relationship – it is all at once open and vulnerable while also reliable and purposeful. Of course, like any relationship worthwhile, it comes with its own set of challenges: Do we “click?” Are you learning something about yourself and the world around you through this time (both during and after a session)? Are we comfortable providing each other feedback? Are we doing the work of healing? 

It is as much about what the therapist can offer and the ways in which they can validate your truth as it is what you would like to and are ready to bring to the table at your own pace. 

As such, I see myself as the facilitator of this bold, empowering process – you take ownership of your decisions, including the positive ones that showcase your inherent power to engage in life in the best way possible for you.
