Hi, I’m Dez Rodriguez (she/they), a trauma-informed therapist in NYC. I received my Master’s in Mental Health Counseling from Columbia University and completed NYU’s Trauma-Informed Clinical Practice certificate program. My approach to therapy is rooted in a feminist-multicultural framework that integrates psychodynamic, relational, somatic and mindfulness-based practices. Meaning, I attend to the ways relationships shape and affect us, experiences of power and oppression, and focus on empowering clients to heal in ways that are consistent with their values. As a queer Latina, I am mindful of my own story, how it has shaped my worldview, and most of all the transformative power of feeling understood. I am currently accepting new clients who wish to use their out-of-network benefits.
