Juan Olmedo, LCSW, CGP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in New York
I have worked in social services providing individual and group counseling in New York City for over 15 years. From crisis hotline volunteer to HIV test educator, from substance use counselor to prevention group leader, my work has taught me two important things: no one's life is perfect and everyone's got issues. So why therapy? There are times when you find yourself in the same frustrating or painful situation, or when you just want to make a change but don't know how - therapy can help. With my training and experience, I can help you through these times.
My goal is to build a therapeutic relationship that includes trust, safety and communication. I draw from diverse theoretical models including psychodynamic work and motivational interviewing. I have worked closely with many communities and their issues including LGBT, communities of color, and being HIV-positive, HIV-negative or unknown.
I believe I can help to facilitate your process towards achieving your therapeutic goals and making changes. I look forward to hearing from you.
