Hi, Julian Cabezas (he/they)

I draw on a range of disciplines, cultures, and frameworks. My therapy orientation is supported by 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. I focus on sex counseling utilizing a supportive approach when providing individual, partners, and couples counseling.

 

My psychotherapy interventions are founded on relationship building. My clients are diverse but connected by threads of wanting connection, curious about learning about themselves, looking for a place where their gender, sexuality, culture, and relationship orientations are affirmed.  I work with many people; some identify as BIPOC, LGBTQQIP2SAA, kinky, non-monogamous, adult children of alcoholics, spiritual, and allies.

During the academic calendar year, I supervise second-year social work interns providing more access for people who would otherwise not be able to receive therapy at a private practice.
