At some point, on our way to a new consciousness, we will have to leave the opposite bank, the split between the two mortal combatants somehow healed so that we are on both shores at once and, at once, see through serpent and eagle eyes.

About Me:

Hi, I'm Julian Cabezas, LMSW(he/they)

I am a queer, trans, Chicanx, mixed race therapist focused on working with individuals and partnerships. At this time, I don't work with families but can provide a referral to one of my colleagues.  My hope is for each person I met to enhance your skills to move more joyfully in your relationships, your daily habits and your future goals.  I utilize an intersectional feminist framework as I listen to your life stories and beliefs. I was raised in a mixture of lots of cultures and households as a youth, which gave me the benefit of learning firsthand how each community has a unique way of living. Moving me to believe that seeing people in a monolithic way just dims the array of layers. As a sex therapist, I am dedicated to affirming language for your body, your stories, your community and your future. The majority of people who reach out to me are BIPOC, LGBTQQIP2SAA, kinky, non-monogamous, spiritual and allies. As a person, I enjoy learning and engaging with all types of cultures so I feel privileged to be able to hold space for the people who reach out to me.

I am a Field Instructor for Columbia University's School of Social Work and supervise two grad level social work interns who provide sessions at a sliding scale. 

Tech questions:

I am in group practice with Wiser Sex Therapy Associates. All sessions are conducted over HIPPA compliant platforms like Doxy or Zoom. I am located just across from Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY on the original land of the Munsee Lenape people.

Relationship Therapy

I offer couples and relationship counseling services from an identity-focused framework. Having someone trained to facilitate conversations can help people have those really important conversation.

What conversations or topics would you like to explore, move forward with or listen/hear your partner(s) emotions about?


I support your culture, relationship orientation, sexuality and gender here.


Individual Therapy

If you're looking for a refuge from the hustle and burnout, a safe space to process marginalization or rejection from community, as well as healing from maybe some not so great relationships, I can help you.

If you're looking for support related to Culture, Gender, or Sexuality, I offer a safe space to explore these aspects of identity and more. I specialize in providing sex therapy in New York City.

I also enjoy helping individuals experiencing symptoms of mental health issues, in it's various forms, find ways to alleviate pain and methods to align again or for the first time.

Palm Trees


For clinicians, individuals, and organizations looking for consultations advisement, I provide single sessions and ongoing consultations. 

I have more than 19 years of experience working in various arenas within the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community. My work spans over specializations ranging from immigration, intergenerational trauma through a decolonizing lens, unleashing the shame of erotophobia and navigating the pain of being in multiple dimensions as a people of color living within the United States.  When providing any type of services, I focus on understanding the person's role within the community and the communities role within the person.
