Hi, Julian Cabezas (he/they)
I became a therapist because I wanted to be the kind of person someone could talk to when they had no one. That's because I experienced trauma in my developing years and know-how isolating pain can be. How much you might want a change and not know where to start.
As a multiracial, trans, and queer therapist, I work with an understanding that therapy doesn't need to reflect just one perspective. I work from a holistic approach, helping treat the whole individual and considering the world they live within. My therapy orientation is influenced by indigenous knowledge, gender studies, critical race theory, sex therapy, public health, education, sexology, queer theory, spirituality, feminist criticism, music, public policy, and the wisdom acquired from my clients.
My practice is focused on supporting BIPOC, LGBTQQIP2SAA, kinky, poly/cnm communities, and allies.

With my population focus on individuals and relationships, I have over 12 years of experience working through a variety of settings such as residential facilities, community, and peer-led mental health, grassroots organizing, the NYC Department of Health, NYS Department of Health, and CDC. From these experiences comes an understanding that cultural competence is important.
