As humans, our greatest strength is our ability to form connections with others. As a therapist, I aim to create authentic relationships with my clients in an open, trustworthy environment. Through trauma-informed practice, I work with my clients to foster fulfilling connections and secure attachments in their personal lives.

I bring my multidisciplinary experience in research and education to my work as a clinician. From my background in implicit bias research, I ground my clinical work in anti-oppressive practice. As a sex educator, I offer LGBTQ+, kink, non-monogamous/polyamorous, and sex-work affirming therapy.

I obtained my BA in Psychology from New York University in 2019, where I published research on Narcissistic and Dependent Personality Disorders. I completed my Master’s in Clinical Social Work at Columbia University in May 2022, with a concentration in health, mental health, and disabilities. Interested in a phone consultation? Email me!

Ricardo Iglesias, LCSW-R

I understand the psychotherapy process as a bridge. A bridge is a
transitional space that allow us to connect to the other side. The
therapeutic space, as a bridge, is an opportunity to create an encounter
with our true self, and a space for “change”. Once we cross the bridge, we
will be different. I believe the therapeutic space is a partnership, building
on the respect of one’s own self and the respect and acceptance of our
differences. My approach to therapy is focused on each individual’s need,
while providing a safe, supported and empathic environment.

With 25 years of experience as a bilingual psychotherapist, I work with
individuals and couples, and as a therapist’s supervisor. I work with
people struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, life
transitions, loss of loved ones, physical and emotional abuse, chronic and
terminal illness, self-esteem issues, coming out, psychological distress
associated with immigration and cultural impact.

As a psychotherapist, I work at Metropolitan Center for Mental Health and
in private practice. In addition to holding a master’s degree in clinical
social work from the NYU Silver School of Social Work, I hold a Master of
Psychology from University of Buenos Aires, Argentina (UBA). Prior to my
career in Psychology, I studied History and worked as a faculty professor
and researcher at the UBA.

Everyone has their “stuff”, the inevitable challenges sewn into the fabric of their lives. Whether those challenges stem from your family, social, or work contexts, they can have a significant impact on mood, esteem, and overall life satisfaction. I work with adolescents and adults to identify the onset of those challenges and the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that can hold you hostage in your life. In order to liberate you from those emotional confines, I am committed to individualizing my approach and meeting your specific set of needs.

After a psychodynamic exploration of family dynamics, traumas, and pivotal moments over the life course, we will collaborate over meaningful goals aimed at enhancing your self-worth, relationships, and life in general. Throughout that work, I will be vigilant about relaying relevant cognitive and dialectical behavior strategies to reinforce progress.

I maintain a compassionate and empathic therapeutic style in order to create a “judgment-free zone” for my clients. I live and work by the belief that there is value in every experience and by uncovering the meaning in challenges, you can maximize the rest of your life.
