Professional statement

Adrian is a bilingual (Spanish), licensed clinical social worker in Connecticut and New York. He is passionate about working with young adults and professionals struggling to navigate anxiety/depression, addiction recovery, relationship issues, personal growth, and day to day stressors.

Adrian recognizes the importance of building a strong therapeutic relationship. Once that alliance has been established, Adrian collaborates with the client to establish goals and explore evidenced-based approaches. He has extensive experience applying dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) techniques in his work with clients to help improve overall functioning and build a satisfying life.

Adrian obtained his master’s degree in social work in 2017. He completed his post-graduate training in a community healthcare setting in New Haven, Connecticut, providing individual therapy to folks struggling with chronic mental illness and addiction issues. Following this, Adrian worked as a primary clinician at a substance abuse rehab program for teens and young adults where he facilitated family care meetings, intensive outpatient therapy, and individual counseling. As of 2021, Adrian owns and operates his own private therapy practices based out of Milford, Connecticut and Manhattan, New York.

In his spare time, Adrian enjoys traveling, gastronomy, and spending time with his partner, family, friends, three cats, and dog.

Message to clients

From the very beginning, my training has always taught me to meet clients where they’re at. Therapy is and should always be a unique process for you - I am simply here to facilitate and guide.

I strongly value the relationship I establish with my clients and feel that my own unique experiences enhance the therapeutic process.

I am offering in-person sessions in NYC on Thursdays or via Telehealth, Mon-Thu.

Finding for the right therapist can feel overwhelming. Feel free to reach out and schedule a 15 min consultation via phone or virtually so we can meet and explore what brings you to therapy and how I can help.
