I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor licensed in North Carolina with over 6 years of experience working as a psychotherapist and readjustment counselor. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, grief/loss, life challenges and end of life issues. The main focus of my practice over the last 4 years has been working with clients who have experienced trauma in their lives, physical, sexual and emotional.
I am a compassionate, caring and empathetic counselor that has first hand experience with the benefits that counseling can provide. I know it can be scary to ask for help, and I want you to know that the process of counseling is all about assisting you in getting to where you want to be. At no time will you be judged or forced to try anything that you feel uncomfortable with. I will tell you that any suggestions I might bring up to you, I have personally utilized at some level and found to be effective. As a therapist, my goal is to help you attain your goals, not my goals for what I would think you need. I am a strong believer in education, and before I introduce any type of therapeutic approach, I will fully explain to you the process, and ask you to personally do some research on the approach so that if you have any questions, I will be able to answer them upfront. Again, I know it can be scary and difficult to take that first step, but we will get through this together. The process of change takes time and perseverance, but I want you to know that I will be here with you the whole time. At times, change might seem unattainable, but if you commit to implementing the things we agree upon, change will start to be apparent. “I never said change would be easy, I said it would be WORTH it” -anonymous

Esteban is well educated and can break it down to be understood
Professional, experienced therapist
Esteban Minsk is so helpful! He gives me great tools to work through my anxiety and worries.
It’s attentive and patient , he tries to get the root of the problem
Esteban keeps in continual contact with me. He is professionally helpful, insightful and kind. I am VERY GLAD & THANKFUL to have this positive male "mentoring" and psychological healing. THANK YOU for maintaining people of integrity and compassion for their clients.
I'm so thankful I was matched with Esteban. We've only had 2 sessions so far but he's already been such great help. He's so kind and thoughtful, and checks in with me in between sessions. I look forward to our next!
I have worked with multiple female therapists and Esteban was the first male therapist that I’ve ever worked with ! At first I was nervous because of past experiences but his initial greeting was very welcoming! We set up a video session and this session was the first one where I didn’t have to go through my life story from the beginning, he gave me tools to use when I’m not feeling myself! He was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything to me! It was the first time I had left a session with resources and tools to use on myself!
