Professional statement

Seth is licensed clinical psychologist currently based in Pittsburgh, PA. Seth’s works primarily with adults from BIPOC and LGBTQIA2S+ communities. His clients often come to therapy with concerns related to feelings of depression, anxiety, relational concerns, questions of identity, trauma, cultural-related stress due to exposure of discrimination and bigotry, and with intent to reflect on and navigate their own positions of power and privilege.

Seth is an integrative therapist with a multicultural, social justice, and trauma-informed focus and pulls from many therapy methods to tailor treatment to his clients’ needs. With his approach, he considers the importance of his clients’ identities, histories, and strengths to promote insight, empowerment, and motivation to make meaningful decisions in the present.

At all times, Seth is committed to ensuring that the therapeutic relationship remains one of the biggest factors in therapy. In keeping with inclusive and empathic practices, he believes that clients must feel heard, understood, and accepted by their therapist for real work to happen. As such, he aims to be a collaborator, as well as a guide, and he meets his clients on their own terms.


Message to clients

I think it’s important to know who your therapist is as a person before you decide to work with them. I believe therapy works best when you feel your therapist is a person you can trust and believe they’re in your corner. I am a cisgender, able-bodied, heterosexual, progressive Black American male from Pittsburgh, PA. I come from a family of largely Southern US background with a mixed socio-economic background. Throughout my training, my racial and gender identities have been incredibly important to how I present myself and engage with my therapeutic work. People are complex and engage with their identities in a myriad of ways, so I strive to be sensitive and empathetic to how clients express themselves, however that may be.

I am a therapist with a multicultural, relational, and social justice focus. I attend to your story while being mindful of the ways that culture can shape your understanding of yourself and your world. Our work can focus on these insights to improve your resiliency in the present.

The therapeutic relationship is a new and intimate one and I tend to it with values of curiosity, humility, and collaboration. As we define your healing process together, it takes a form unique to your needs. Healing may be task-oriented, quiet, reflective, challenging, or empowering. All in all, I wish to help you strengthen your sense of self.
