Profile Picture of Santiago Baez Jr, LCSW

Santiago Baez Jr, LCSW

Santiago Baez is Licensed Clinical Social Worker with experience treating anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, grief, and LBGTQIA+ related issues with families, couples, adolescents, and individuals. His approach to treatment is, no one approach to therapy that is appropriate for everyone. Regardless of the similarities that our problems may have in root cause, be it traumatic events, neglect, childhood abuse; our current issues and struggles requires a discerning eye to find the right approach for everyone’s unique personality but is guided by values that might be identified with relational, client-centered, and humanistic therapies. Believing strongly that the quality of a therapist’s relationship with a client plays a determining role in the process and outcome of therapy, he strives to be acutely and yet gently attuned to each client’s needs, wishes and goals while also striving to be authentically himself, meeting each client ‘where they’re at’ with sincere curiosity and strengths-focused positive regard. His goal is to create a safe and supportive space for his clients to explore the conscious/unconscious dynamics we all live with. He finds the use of gentle humor, when appropriate, allows us to safely explore the serious worries and challenges we’re dealing with. Santiago incorporates in his treatment practice therapeutic modalities ranging from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, Trauma Focused, EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Mindfulness-Based, and Motivational Interviewing, among other modalities. Santiago has a Master of Social Work from Hunter College’s Silberman School of Social Work and Post graduate training and supervision from the Ackerman Institute for the Family.
