Tyler Alexandro Diaz is a licensed clinical social worker in the state of New York working with teenagers, young adults, and adults. Tyler studied Evolutionary Psychology at the University of Arizona and received his Master of Social Work from Fordham University. Since 2012, Tyler began his journey of working with teens and young adults in preventive care and foster care in Arizona and New York, harnessing his therapeutic skills in demanding environments.
As a therapist, Tyler works to assist his participants in developing insight into their emotional and somatic responses to different environmental stressors. He specializes in working with teenagers, young adults, and adults living with serious mental illnesses, anxiety, depression, personality disorders, eating disorders, trauma, and substance use. He also understands that many people live with co-occurring mental health and medical disorders and navigates those complexities as part of his participant-centered care.
Tyler specializes in creating realistic goals that are unique to you, taking into account the social barriers, identity politics, life transitions and unmet needs. This is a time during which racial tension, class warfare, and a global pandemic has uprooted everyone’s lives in one way or another; it is no surprise that our mental health is in dire need of attention and care. Tyler wants to design a safe space for you in which you may nourish your creativity, motivation, and help you develop the tools you need to care, respect, and honor yourself every day. Tyler will work with you to goals and then work with you step-by-step to make sure you are getting closer to meeting them; every step forward is an accomplishment worth celebrating.
Tyler embraces all identities, inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, ability, or religion. He understands that therapy is a journey and that it is critical that you feel comfortable when working with your therapist. Tyler creates an environment in which you are free to be yourself, and feels it is a privilege to be part of your journey of self-love, self-discovery, and self-realization.
