RICHARD UNITE, LMSW

Queer Asian Psychotherapist

Hi there! My name is Richard (they/he) and I am a Non-binary Filipinx Psychotherapist based in New York City. Growing up as a queer, low-income, first-generation college student with immigrant parents, I draw on my experiences to provide social justice-informed trauma therapy. My therapy space is warm, collaborative, client-centered, and strengths-based, and much of my expertise has been working with queer, transgender, and HIV-affected youth and adults around experiences of abuse and violence. My goals as a therapist is to help LGBTQ+ clients, especially those who also identify as a person of color, heal from trauma and explore their gender/sexual identity in a safe space. I look forward to working together with you to achieve your therapy goals.
