Carlos Velazquez III

(MSW, LCSW)

About Me

My name is Carlos Velazquez. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 12 years experience. The type of therapies I feel are most effective are called Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). What is CBT? CBT is based on the simple idea that your thoughts and not external events, create your moods. What is DBT? Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, developed by Marsha Linehan, is very effective at helping people manage their overwhelming emotions.

All journeys begin with the first step and you have done that by searching for help. It is often the toughest step to take but it is well worth it. Your health and overall well-being matters. I am confident that things will fall into place and you will make great strides through counseling.

The counsel I receive from Carlos Velazquez III is very practical and timely. He not only gets at a problem, but gets to the root of the problem and offers very viable solutions to overcome or have victory. He understands you in a very deep way and helps you begin on a new and helpful path of thinking which helps you encounter every day’s life circumstances.
